Mr. Tang First posting pictures of your blow up roommate. And now this. Is everything sex with you now? You need to get out and buy some gear. Your choice of activity:)

Ben,

Interesting information.

Sofas are dangerous in other ways too. A friend of mine years ago when to a wild party one winter. No more firewood. No problem. They began feeding their sofa into the large fireplace. Did not burn the house down but a bit smokey he said.

A pretty good argument for leaving your backpack on??

I've stubbed my toe more than once (on a sofa, not that other activity).
