shopping for a new chair. I've been looking at them on and off for a while now. Unfortunately now my hand has been forced. The wheel on the bottom of my chair just broke.

Carefull. You don't want to get one that feels good for 30 seconds in the store but when you get home...it sucks.
I borrowed one from work for a week to try it at home before I spent $150-$200 on one. It sucked.

Just some advice. :)

I had a favourite chair that literally exploded once. I leaned back and some metal bit just gave up. The whole spring assembly blew itself apart and I fell on the floor.

Another one broke when my girlfriend jumped on me whilst I was playing Half-Life. It was spectacularly uncomfortable.

whoa, you injured yourself on that occasion ??

Greetings VC Anthony. I really should use my Captain Shane thing for continuity :).

Com, no I wasn't injured in the way you're probably thinking ;). When the first chair broke I basically just hit the floor like a sack of potatoes. It hurt, but I wasnt permenantly maimed.

I've had one of those...see, the past two chairs of mine I've found in peoples trash. shut up. anyways, the first one i was leaning back in and said to my friend "I probably shouldn't be sitting like this" and bam the back broke off. I fell over backwards and ended up in a wierd kama sutra-esque position with my head and neck flat on the floor, my back perpendicular to the floor, and my lower torso parrallel to the floor. Damn that hurt.

Let that be a lesson to us. Chairs are a higher power and must be treated with respect. <suspicious look at work chair>

When good chairs turn bad


Kitchen Chair
Computer Chair (boooooooooo!)

They won't be laughing when the chairs start dropping. One day we'll build a bigger chair with bigger wheels and it'll destroy us all!! <runs off screaming, workmates look baffled>
