The Wobbly Chair aphorism

Advice for life

Imagine every chair you’d ever sat on was wobbly. You’d just assume chairs were supposed to be wobbly – because you’d never experience a well-made chair. Well, 90% of people would. Then maybe 10% would ask, what the fuck mate? These chairs suck. Let’s make better chairs. And they’d try and make better chairs, but probably there would never be enough of them that enough people experienced better chairs for it to take off, plus the folk that make ibuprofen gel have probably got a lot invested in wobbly chairs. And most people that they tried to tell about would likely respond with animosity anyway. Aren’t these chairs good enough for you? Chair snob. Get to fuck.
