My only reservation is that my weight never changes, so it would never reveal more than one affirming aspect of my being. I think some sort of magic 8-ball technology that is triggered by stepping on the platform would be a better idea.

And hell yes, what's up with cutting down the Truffula tree to make the cover for it?

For you, they will make one that either can detect differences of 1/100 of an ounce, or that varies according to the ambient temperature in Nairobi.

I think if it came in a nice, deep green velvet I'd be all over that thing. :)

Mine would probably say things like "eh", "you looked fine before too", "why are you focusing on your weight"...

I don't think a scale that says "eh" would be of the least use to anyone. Any marketer with an ounce of sense would chuck that one out the window and start fresh with something more fun.
