Going Quick

It’s The Ferrari Of Office Chairs

Police in Germany have confiscated what's thought to be the world's fastest office chair. Two 17-year-olds had souped it up with a lawnmower engine, bicycle brakes and a metal frame. They could face charges on a variety of offences - including riding a vehicle without insurance, licences or registration.

FOOTNOTE: Sitting on the offence.

What a hoot! What an ingenius way to "use" an office chair. I hope they get off not too hard but put their ingenuity to more "legal" inovations.

Ha!

I could very well die by my own insistence on a new control chair in the control room booth at the Stadium. It's a great chair, but the wheels are super slippery. I went to slide down to the other end of the sound console and I kept going almost off the 3 steps that lead up to the sound control pedestal. When I said to the scorekeepers etc who were in the booth running checks that I might break my neck this year one acerbically looked back and just said "don't."

Carl Edwards would be proud.

Oooh! I should have done that instead of bought the mini-van! I could be just as dangerous on an office chair, I think. :-)

The vanity plate, once they register it, will read MULTI TASKER.
