Holds Hands, Heat Up

As a marketing stunt, Duracell created a bus shelter up in chilly Montreal that would heat up, but only if the people in the shelter were holding hands.

Maybe I'm just a curmudgeon, but I would find it a bit annoying if I had to remove my gloves in the freezing weather to get the heater to work... and then stand there, arms spread apart. Plus, what if you really didn't want to be touching whomever had stumbled into the shelter with you? And what if you were there alone?

Be fair, though, you're not losing anything. You're merely not gaining something you would otherwise not have had in the first place. Anyone who doesn't like it is free to stand in any of the other, completely unheated shelters, or in the healthy Montreal open air.

How long would I have to stand in there to roast a chicken?

If you heat the bus shelter it will just intensify the pee smell.

Actually Patty, with enough bladder pressure you could pee accross the shelter, complete the circuit by yourself and not have to hold hands with anybody!

Drove a bus. If somebody peed I'd have to clean it up. Puke was the worst. That's still funny, though.
