The Treadmill Mouse keeps your fingers busy between mouse- clicks and provides excellent exercise for competitive gaming. Treadmill Mouse tends to escape the grasp of the user and streak under sweaty palms and forearms off the desk and into laps or elsewhere. A common injury that occurs when using Treadmill Mouse is one of the fingers being broken or sprained when it moves between the hand and Treadmill Mouse. Treadmill Mouse usually pulls the finger to the breaking point then shoots out when no further movement is possible.

       I thought you would have to get up from your computer seat and move around to get it to move as well. Sounded like a great idea.   

       And I thought mean or painful ideas were not allowed on HB

       It has not hurt anyone, and I am trying to warn about such an idea.

       If someone places a slippery floor sign with a picture of someone falling, he is not making fun of everyone who has fallen and even died in a similar manner. I am making a caution.

       //If someone places a slippery floor sign with a picture of someone falling, he is not making fun of everyone who has fallen and even died in a similar manner// You could go round with a roll of “Ha, Ha!” stickers to affix to those signs!

       There must be some audio birthday or greeting cards somewhere with a Nelson Muntz sound bite.   

       Buy a bunch of those [poc] rip out the little audio widgets & tape them to the back of the signs with some kind of trigger mechanism instead ;)

       Well it is sort of making a socially acceptable trap. It's like if placing banana peels on the floor had some sort of practical value, and the warning sign that was placed could be interpreted as a joke. I guess because water is not as funny as banana peels it doesn't cross a visual threshold or something as being funny. Maybe make a big yellow warning sign look like a banana peel, and then it would be more clear.
