I would not want to be in that room drunk.... I would be freaking out....

you know how, sometimes when you're bored, you look up and imagine what it would be like if gravity turned upside down and you got to walk around on the ceiling? (Does everyone have this daydream?)

NO

Step 11. Cackle evilly. Or giggle uncontrollably. Or both.

Why wait until step 11?

Seems like a lot of trouble to go to when you could just have everyone lick a frog on the way into a normal room and achieve the same (or even better) effect.

To truly answer Dave's question let's see how many comments the blog gets today.

Step 12:


Go out and find a job already!!

I want to see the picture of someone sitting in the chair!

Mono-filament wire THAT!

*puts on velcro suit and obliges Higgy's request*

Damn, now I'm stuck here and I forgot to set the timer on the camera!

Let me guess...all of the "normal room" creators are Microsoft employees...

As a host, Ping is one of the bores
On a fun-meter, he barely scores
At his recent-most party
Not one guest got hearty
In fact, they were climbing the floors!

I'd rather just invest in a pair of gravity boots.

Kevin,

he,he..I thought the same thing!

And Claire Martin is one of them!

Totally cool.

Wow. This guy's the greatest artist since Bill Watterson. Of course, Bill blows him out of the water, but this guy's the greatest since Bill.

Hi, Dave. I've been a fan of your column for years and it was quite a thrill to discover today that this goofy little project ended up on your blog. It was definitely a lot of fun to construct, but I wasn't expecting it to suddenly become this popular. I hope you enjoyed it some fraction as much as I've enjoyed your writing.

To the other people who have written comments here: I don't deserve all the credit. My friend David and I worked on it together, and he came up with many of the best ideas (the trash can, the sock, the drapes). Neither of us work for Microsoft. (In fact, I have turned down Microsoft in the past, and I've made it clear that I will continue to turn them down until they start behaving more ethically.)

Thanks, and I'm glad you liked it!
