The Chair

I have discovered how to attain perfect balance between gaming and every other responsibility and joy in life. It is simple really. Three little steps:
  1. Sell your comfortable gaming chair. Or, alternatively, give it your your wife to use.
  2. Find yourself an old uncomfortable wood chair.
  3. Sit in the chair while you game.
Forget about comfort. Forget about ergonomics. Nothing limits game time like the pain induced by a poorly designed wood chair. I can't go more than an hour without my shoulders, back, and neck stiffening up. At first it wasn't so bad. But, as you know, starting a new MMO means playing more often and playing longer. See illustration below. Impressed by my artistic ability?
All sarcasm aside, the chair I'm using has got to go. This weekend I'm heading to my local office supply store and finding a good chair. Not this leftover from the Spanish Inquisition.

LOL - nice picasso

Nobody expects comfort from the Spanish Inquisition!

I wish my local Staples had more chairs with the adjustable armrests. There have been many chairs there I would have bought if they had that addition.

You think I have a shot illustrating books for Marvel or Dark Horse? :)
