Literally. This chair is the most uncomfortable chair in the history of shitty Scandinavian furniture. It’s uncomfortable enough that I feel it merits a blog post.
I say Scandinavian rather than Swedish because it’s not actually from Ikea, but from some Norwegian company.
And I guess it’s not actually this chair but a chair very like it, only I couldn’t find a picture of this one, presumably because it’s fifteen or so years old. It’s made of wood rather than steel, and the seat is actually not curved to hold a butt, but rigid and full of hate.
It’s completely impossible to adjust the tilt of the seat or the leg rests, or the distance to the leg rests, and apparently their reference human was a three-legged midget.
The end result is that five minutes in this chair will make your back explode with discomfort and physically force your buttocks into your spine, and because the seat is tilted you can’t even just consign it to a corner of the room and stack junk on it, because it will slide off.
The company that made the chair still exists, but apparently doesn’t make them anymore. Even so, most of the products they do still make have at one point or another in their lifetime been recalled for health reasons, so they don’t appear to have mended their ways.
It’s actually more comfortable to just sit on the leg rests.
I should probably get rid of it, but it’s one of the things I inherited from my grandfather.
In completely unrelated news, I deleted Quhan’s blog because it was full of exploit. This makes it the third of our blogs to be compromised.
WordPress is absolute crap when it comes to security, but unless you’re Maia, it’s your own responsibility to keep your installs up to date, people. You have FTP accounts for a reason.
In further unrelated news, I’m never going to finish this Monopoly game. It’s due this Friday.
