    I did not know this was a thing until a few years ago. The internet has taught me much.

    Maybe my "edible book" idea will have merit after all.

    Aren't there bigger fish to fry, like the pay gap, etc? This seems like it has far more to do with petty vindiction than it does equality.

    Same here. Manspreading. What a word.
    What do they call it when women sit that way?Besides the obvious copy, Womanspreading?

    Good luck with that. Imagine the space saved in personal libraries after its purchase. ;)

    No. This is at the top of the list. I don't make the list.

    Food for the mind and the body. It has it all. Why has this not been a thing until now?

    I was unaware that there was an issue with how men sit, until someone brought it to my attention on Facebook.

    I tried strength training but that ThighMaster thing only moved them further apart.

    Yeah. The buffet and the library would be in one place.

    You've been thinking about this. Imagine the languages you could learn while dining out.

    It would give diet books an entirely new meaning.

    And eventually people will want edible e-readers, but that's another 5-10 years off.

    I saw this yesterday. She wins an award for making a chair to prevent men from "manspreading" and taking up others personal space but also invented a chair for women to encourage "womanspreading" to encourage women to take up other people personal space? ROFLMAO

    Did at any point anyone say to her just use a chair with armrest.

    But to be politically correct, you get a medal. We all get medals saying we're #1.

    But it is good to be thinking ahead like that. Got to keep the research and development pipeline flowing as the market is developed.

    What about a chair with a system of ropes and pulleys that will bind the legs together and improve posture? They can also serve as props for extemporaneous amateur comedy sketches. That would reduce the carbon footprint by about 47% over having two different chairs for each task.

    I don't know what manspreading is, and those chairs wouldn't last in any library I've been to. No library has ever made me feel comfortable despite all the new fancy chairs, but those look like food tables.

    There was this one chair that kept having ant problems. Seriously, it was always infested with ants. Another chair swiveled nicely but wasn't well balanced for anybody over 180lb. There were some very tall stools that could have passed for tables.

    Sofas...yes the sofas are nice. I also like a nice, big wooden chair; and its Ok if its got a leather pad on it.

    Considering we fought out others to be born, if you understand birth (or if I understand it), we are all pretty close to needing a big #1 medal.
