    Found a use for all of those empty protein jugs...

    I was sick and tired of always losing the remote in the couch cushions so I decided to fix that problem.

    I've tried muscle-tech products before, their protein blended like cement. What would be cool though is if you taped the remote to a full jug. You could make a shake and channel surf without even getting up.

    You should fill the jug with lead shot so it's really heavy and you get a GPP workout by flipping channels.

    Get one of those beeping devices you can attach to your remote or keys.

    Yeah, I'm a big fan of those supplements in the background. I found that having five scoops of Bacardi a day really improves my strength.

    Either it improves it, or I just think that I'm doing more, either one
