    Those are very nice. I've seen them once before. Too expensive though.

    i like the lounging aspect but it's not a good way to get serious work done because the comfort level of those looks to be able to put people to sleep

    Forget the Mini, with a TV like that -- it's time for life-sized pornstars on screen.

    Those DD breasts look way too small on my TV right now, and the B cup just vanishes. :(

    That's why I want one, it's for my home, I've been looking for a chair (for home) that I can relax in maybe fall asleep who cares (I don't) money is the only hurdle, know of anything similar? as for serious work, I'm an engineer (or spanner monkey, whatever) and everything else on my comp is a hobby ;)

    It's a hands on engineer not one that sits in front of a screen all day and tells you about the great "Idea" he had (Epiphany :D ) which will never work

    NO definitely not (might sometimes be called one if things don't go right) :D
    Is that Hatfield in your screen name, your name, in US, or connected to your stay in the UK, coincidence is Hatfield is only 10 miles away, I used to work for De Havillands in Hatfield.

    I'd suffer from a similar probem. I wouldn't be able to sit far enough back to get the whole picture.

    An engineer who designs for the real world and not the lab? :eek:
    I don't know that I've ever met one of those here. Damn people make things so you can't fix them when they actually do break around here... ::grumbles::
    I just spent two hours removing a fan from a piece of equipment that, had a technician designed it, it would've only taking about 10 minutes to get it out.

    As for the chair thingie, nice. Not going to happen here tho, I'd rather buy a faster machine instead :)

    I think in this case he's not talking about the theoretical or design aspect at all. I think he's saying that he actually DOES stuff, builds and maintains.

    In a way you're correct, but theory and design also are expected from myself and colleagues(depends on the size of project), I then build and test them :) , don't do the maintenance thingy that's another department, also the type of engineering I'm involved in is of the big metally variety (medium-heavy engineering mostly in manufacturing-automobiles to aerospace) ;)

    I think he meant other ones - you know -envy etc. Those screens are nearly 2/3 as big as me - I'll stick to my 4" portable :D
