Ok now that it is 2013 and I am 8 years older and with 8 years of
parsing f-ing emails under my belt, and with a fancy kurzweilian iPad
with its fantastically advanced touch screen keyboard which makes it
so much easier to say everything than it was in the old 2005s, I am
going to try to rewrite
this idea mostly because I am amazed that it
doesn't exist yet, and partially because my butt hurts from sitting in
this very Un-splash-like chair.
This is a rewriting of "Molecular Velcro" from 2005 which no one got,
apparently because I didn't speak or think English back in the day.
But I can't believe that the product doesn't exist so I am going to
throw it out there, this time hopefully in English.
So the idea is for a bunch of balls of whatever size works the best,
say 1inch to start, that have hooks on them, like burrs, so that,
depending on the strengths of the (flexible) hooks, a tub full of
these balls would form to your shape depending on how you
impacted them, and how much you weighed.
I can't write it. I give up. 8 years of f-ing emails and I can't put my
thoughts into words.
A bunch of f-ing Velcro balls, in a tub. So you can skootch them
around but they retain your shape. A bunch of balls with hooks in a
That is all.
I guess I thought if I reduced it to the molecular level that would be more scientific [JesusHChrist, Jul 01 2013]

||Tell people not to sit on it then!
||When I was a [younger] kid, me and some friends
sometimes collected huge quantities of burrs in
order to make sticky burr sculptures. So [+].
||Yes like the ball pit pool but all the balls have hooks -- like
on burrs -- for sticking together like Velcro or post-it gum.
