I once knew a guy who cooked synthetic cocaine. It's just like synthesizing caffeine, and uses the same equipment and almost identical precursor chemicals. His cover for buying the chemicals was that he was doing a startup company for a new energy drink with caffeine. The first time I met him he was years later after he got out of prison. Weird guy. He spent years of his personal free time designing "the perfect computer chair." Captivated the heck out of me. There were literally dozens and dozens of parameters and important features, as well as what he called "anti-features" to avoid. He pointed out the "obvious" fact that the primary reason computer chairs swivel and have wheels is so that the user can easily get in and out of the chair at a desk. A recliner chair at home doesn't need wheels or swiveling because theres no desk in the way. But beyond that, recliner chairs are sub-optimal for computer work because they tend to be built for fat people, with profoundly impractical armrests. And of course, the ideal computer chair would be paired with a split keyboard attached to the arms, which would be incredibly uncomfortable with the awful armrests of a recliner. I actually walked into a huge furniture store the other day and asked them if they had any recliners designed for normal sized people, and the owner looked at me and she said, "You know, I must get 5 people a day asking me about that. But no. Manufacturers just don't make them." I did end up buying a couch from her though, after trying out at least 30 couches. It still sucked. Nothing compares to the super deep and soft couch set my uncle had when I was a kid. Flop right down on it and just sink, put my feet up on the table, grab the Gamecube controller and play Super Smash Melee with my cousins and friends for hours and hours. We were all so excited when we got the Wii and started playing Brawl. Holy shit was the disappointment palpable. It was so bittersweet too. All these awesome new characters to play, new awesome stages, but the game mechanics were all so... ruined. Tripping? Motherfucking TRIPPING while trying to move, just because you're doing better than the other players?? None of us were exceptionally good but we all noticed. I haven't played Smash Bros since Brawl though, being grown up and too busy, but I hear Ultimate is actually pretty great.
