Heavyhands. You bought these and power-walked to burn off fat.

Everyone bought them, used them a few times, and threw them away. The odd thing is, they actually worked very well for burning off fat (the doctor who wrote the best seller that advocated them included pages after page of meticulous research showing fat loss) but you had to use them the way he intended - not just walking, but swinging your arms out like you were cross-country slkiing - which made you look so dorky no one wanted to do it.

Drive-In Movie Theaters. A better way to spend an evening there never was.

If you still have one in your town, go to it while you can.
