Kids say the darnedest things IKEA Edition...  I know this is rather Reader's Digest-y of my me but I find it amusing, and it's about my kid, who I worship like a God.  So bear with me...

My wife was putting together some chairs she got at IKEA and asked our two-year-old if she could read her the instructions.  The kid picked up the instructions and said "Lay down on the floor and cry."

All those safety recalls really drive up the prices.

It's an improvement on the Hurdal.

Are you talking about the one that amounted to Ikea sending customers who didn't follow the directions provided with the product and secure their bookshelves to the wall with the supplied clip a free replacement clip and instructions, so they could turn around and throw that one away, as well? Because that might be the stupidest recall in history. "Here, people are ignoring our instructions and omitting the safety measure we supplied, and as a result, kids are getting squished. We'll send them a new safety device- identical to the old one- and instructions on how to use it. It's like recalling a car because people keep getting killed in crashes because they chose not to wear the supplied, functioning seat belt.

There is an inverse relationship between the artistic value of a piece of furniture and its actual comfort or utility.

The Eames lounge chair.  It's magical.  A classic piece of modernist design and unbelieveably comfortable at the same time.

Do IKEA assembly instructions come with written directions where you live? I've only ever seen the graphic versions. And used them to assemble more pieces of IKEA furniture than I care to think about.

No, but when a kid can't read yet you ask her to "read" the graphics.
