I only use hair-dryers in the bathtub.

I am perplexed at the number of people replying to this thread with continued seriousness. I really thought this thread lent itself to a few quick one-liners and then death, but it continues.

Meanwhile, I am now scouring old trades to see if I got any red-flagged handhelds from any of you peoples.

I'm not the joke-type really. I am quite serious in my thread ideas no matter how odd or ridiculous.

Willy Beamish for the PC/Sega CD. You could play games on Willy's Nintari.

While I was waiting to respawn on Counterstrike, or waiting for the PvP queue in WoW, or flying a long distance with my flying mount in WoW, I had my DS open and played some games. Does that count?

OP... No. Like others, most certainly while on the can. And seriously, with the first GBA, sitting on the can with the bathroom vanity lights behind me was the only way I could see that damn screen.
I don't think I'd dare play while taking a bath due to the moisture involved... That and until I moved to Japan I never took baths back home.

However before the shower CD player was around I did rig up something pretty neat. Using a Walkman and mini-speakers, I took 3 ziplocs, cut holes in the corners for the wires, ran some tape around it to keep moisture out, and placed them in the shower for morning wake-up tunes. I really have absolutely no business sense because about 2~3 years later I saw the shower CD player. Don't know if it "made a million" but still was sad at missed opportunity.
