This apartment is so cramped. I wish I could find a little extra space.

If they could make it into an extendable 8 x 8' room, now we'd be talking.

I may have to revise my opinion that the flash animation five fresh fish FP'ed is the worst idea ever.

*thinks about it*

Naaah, this must be the second worst idea ever.

I can't even get in and out of a papasan without serious trouble, and I'd be expected to lounge about eight stories up on this? Danke schoen, all the same, but I think I'll stick to this ground-hugging beanbag.

You just know people will be yelling "Jump!!" all the time.

I can't imagine them actually selling these things without a lawsuit down the road.

I've been trying to figure out some novel way to plummet to my death.

Damn interior designers are out of ideas and out like balconies.

I'm terrified of heights. Thanks. (Shouldn't there be an acronym for this, like NSFA: Not Safe For Acrophobics?)

I am always dropping my keys under my reclining seat.

That it looks like it was made of old pancake turners is not confidence inspiring.
It might be a useful meditation point for those who have not yet decided on suicide.

Consequently, operating the "extreme furniture" lies outside the defined possibilities for formal objection available to property owners, neighbours and regulatory authorities.

Ha. Ha.

Might also be useful for those who have decided to go with the ayes on suicide but want it to seem like an accident.

My eldest brother was born in England in the 1950s. According to my mother, there was quite a move to keep babies in the fresh air as much as possible. My brother therefore spent a good part of his infancy asleep, bundled up, in a covered mesh box partially cantilevered out of a window into the fresh (sometimes very fresh) Oxford air.

It needs a seatbelt so that you can nap in it. If I weren't on the ground floor I'd buy one.

This should be a great tool for anyone who's angling for a 2006 Darwin Award.

I was thinking it should come with a little sign that would extend out, saying "little help!", and maybe a little basket so people could return items which would fall from your pockets, such as keys, phones, books, drinks, you name it.

I do like the idea for very tall buildings when you're looking to get some sun and lack a fire escape...

the securing area inside the apt kind of makes it a bit unweildly (and while I could do that in my loft, having an absentee and aloof landlord, I think this would void a security deposit)

Back in the old days, regular people paid thousands of dollars for flimsy nooses and unreliable firearms. Now with the Ronco Suicide Spatula, you can enjoy a non-stick flip to Oblivion for a fraction of the cost!

Two years, and this'll be remaindered at IKEA.

It would be hard to lounge around in your underwear on a thing like this.
