  1. That video is almost eerily soothing. Also, if I had that desk, I would anthropomorphize the shit out of it – give it a name, take it for walks to the park, buy it a choco taco. Oh, such adventures we would have…

  2. Apparently your “cute” is my “…that’s sort of weird-looking.” My “cute” is a baby penguin. So I wonder if baby penguins are weird-looking to you or how that works! That seems like a really practical invention though if it means one person can move a heavy table!
