During the height of the Dot Com Era even non-profits (like the one I know for) were buying office chairs like these.
And I was in college during all that craziness. I missed out! Too bad I was busy studying Shakespeare. I could have made millions on Blankbaby, and never have to work about, and have an awesome chair to boot.
Instead, I have to work like a chump and suffer with mediocre office chairs.
