When I learned from Jon Lee in S Club 7 that tanning beds are meant to be unhealthy because they can burn your skin and give you cancer, or even kill you if you get stuck inside and burnt to death, I thought they were just another term for deckchairs, before I knew what they actually were. Would make more sense to call them machines instead of beds. I kept thinking 'why is it bad to lie on a deckchair with a towel, everyone does that in Summer!'
