You know those cool guys who have their girlfriend sit on their lap? They're in pain. Maybe not that instant and maybe not tomorrow but when they get a bit older, they'll feel it. You can't move as freely, you get hot, and your leg goes to sleep. Romantic? Sure why not. Comfortable? No effing way. Laps should be a sit free zone!
Unless you get this concept Hug Chair, a chair that lets your sweetie look and feel like she's sitting on your lap but is actually buffered away on another part of the chair (on top, but not on top). And hey, if you don't have someone who wants to sit on your lap, it makes for a good laptop stand too. [Ilian Milinov via Yanko Design]
