Me and my brother have broken 4 computer chairs now (in under 4 years). We need some metal reinforced ones. They all break in the same place too. No pics though

a spoke,
a seatpost,
and a seat rail

I always look at a chair before sitting in it. A co-worker broke a chair at the hospital while working with a client. I would rather stand during the entire meeting.

Beans, the price of a can of beans.

Surprisingly, no. Luckily, it happened at the end of my ride that day, close to my house, and I just carried the bike home.

Back in college I walked in late to Eco 101 (packed with 200 students) stadium style seating.
I stepped on a seat to get to a lower row when the seat became unbolted from the floor and I rolled down a few rows....ofcourse prof stopped and cracked a joke into the microphone about me....no pictures but you can imagine how embarassing that was ...200 people laughing at the fat dude who broke the chair
