If this isn’t the height of decadence I don’t know what is:

Putting aside those with fibromyalgia, how could anyone justify this purchase? Is it free “white glove” installation? Are the people who can afford such a chair the ones who really need it?

The sort of wrapping oneself in technology, this removal from human touch, this need of comfort from the strain of non-physical labor, all bespeak a kind of self-indulgent insularity removed further and further from communal life.
