For the traveller who has everything

Whenever skimming through the SkyMall on flights, my eyes inevitably end up on this entry, the Neckpro Traction Device. As the maker promises,
It comes completely assembled, ready to use right out of the box and is the perfect travel companion. This easy to use cervical traction device eliminates the bag of water or weights and the trial and error method of traction therapy offered by conventional home over-door cervical traction systems. By coupling a precision, computer designed compression spring with a unique patented rope ratcheting device, the NeckPro delivers a more precise amount of cervical traction incrementally.
Yes, a device that allows you to hang yourself from your bedroom door. What could possibly go wrong? I can't think of anything that helps relieve travel stress like having someone unexpectedly open the door and accidentally lynch you, except maybe the knowledge that the words "autoerotic asphyxiation" and "Michael Hutchence copycat" will appear on the coroner's report.

David Carradine would be alive today, if only . . . .

This made me laugh out loud. Then I went grocery shopping and as I was parking "Don't Change" came on. And I started laughing all over again. In the grocery store. Susan
