For this week’s Wonderful Treasure Find we try to figure out how to not paralyze ourselves.

Yes, we are joking. We’re not afraid of paralyzing ourselves. We just have no clue how to properly use this Korean self back massager thingy. We’ve seen our co-teachers using things like this before, and so we tried one out ourselves, but it doesn’t feel good. At all. Doesn’t feel good one bit. We’re convinced that it’s because we don’t know how to use it properly. There probably are some parts of your back into which it would feel absolutely great and relaxing to dig a hard plastic tip, but we just don’t know where those parts are hiding. Martina’s more convinced that it’ used to beat yourself in the back, rather than to dig yourself in the back, but the way that she tried out hurt her as well. Altogether, we’re not impressed, and we’re a little bit sore as well.

We think this kinda goes along with that Korean Foot Massage we subjected ourselves to. Those massages were excruciatingly painful, so much so that Martina was actually crying in the massage. This idea of pain=healing, or something along those lines, is no fun. Massages should be soothing, a little painful at times, but not all around pain. See, some people will argue that after you’ve endured the pain, you feel great afterwards, and so that’s the whole point of the massage, but that’s RUBBISH! It’s not the pain that makes you feel good, but the fact that you’re not in pain anymore that you’re happy about, it’s the contrast that gives the effect. Think of it this way: eat a burger. Seems like a decent, normal burger, yeah? Now go to jail for 30 years and eat crap. Then, when you’re free, eat a burger. ISN’T THAT BURGER THE MOST DELICIOUS BURGER OF YOUR LIFE?!?! Now, it’s not the burger that’s awesome. It’s no better than before. It’s just the fact that you’ve suffered for so long that you enjoy the burger more than before. Same with Korean massages. You get tortured for a long time, and the good feelings afterwards are those of freedom more than anything else.

Bah! That’s our opinion at least. Anyhow, does anyone know where we can find an instruction manual for these thingies? Hopefully with diagrams that show us where are the best parts to use this thing. I’m sure some people know how to use it well. Help people! Show us what to do here!

  1. Thanks Dan :D Drinks it is! Send us an email when you're finally here.

  2. Lol you guys are really hurting yourself in this one aren't you? Lol. I don't get the whole pain thing either. I've never had a massage but I thought the whole purpose was to relax your muscles not make them feel worse lol. At the end the thing reminded me of a flamingo lol.

  3. OMG! Jorge! Is that you!!? Even though your picture is tiny I could tell it was you right away! What's going on!?? If you still have my old school super ghetto hotmail email address, drop me a line.

    ps-> I'd suggest us catching up over some good ol' fashion Swiss Chalet chicken but I clearly don't live in Canada….hehehe! :p

  4. When eating hot food = sweat = sweat cools skin.


    Btw, check out fish spa. Fantastic awesome I love it!

    And I love painful massages. Its a good kind of pain because the achiness disappears instantly and forever!

  5. Thank you for the thorough response :D

  6. I clicked on your link and it didn't work :(

  7. We've got a wonderful treasure bag full of it. We just went on a shopping spree and bought it all up :D

  8. We'll announce that in next week's video :D


  10. Maaaaan I watched so much Xena as a kid, and Hercules as well. I miss those shows. Makes me wonder…if I watched them now would I be as impressed or would I be amazed at how sucky they are?

  11. Ha! Sorry, taimi, but you spelled my name wrong. I think you meant to say "SIMON, your water sound is WAY better!!!!"

    It's ok, though. I understand :D

  12. Wow. I just noticed that Facebook problem as well. I think it's an issue on Facebook's half not letting the plugin authenticate. I'll look into it.

  13. That was TOTALLY unintentional. Seriously! But, really, there are countless times in which we're getting ready to go out, and when we're all finished we look at each other and say "oh no. We're matching again, aren't we?"

  14. Ummmmm is it just me or should this be rated R? Yeah maybe just me but bahahahaha.

  15. You can, if you're desperate, but it doesn't feel good, I'd say.

  16. We'll be announcing it next week :D
