I don't like to live a life of regrets but I'm a little gutted that I never got around to developing my Treadmill Desk concept way back in 2002. I'd been bitching about how many hours a week I was desk-bound and how it rendered my exercise efforts redundant – I'd calculated that for every hour of exercise, I spent ten sitting on my arse.
My brilliant solution was this Treadmill Desk thingy. I created a stunning artists impression using the best graphics software of the age, Microsoft Paint:
Now what do you know, eight years later some clever bastard has had the same idea but actually made it a reality. Behold, the Trek Desk!
They've been on The Today Show with it and everything!
This discovery was quite crushing as it served to highlight my chronic inability to carpe diem.
And eight years later I am STILL a desk-bound office monkey with a disgruntled expression.
And I went to a wedding last weekend wearing a dress eerily similar to the one in my illustration.
Dash it all!
Disclaimer for the humourless: the tongue is in the cheek here. Please don't send emails saying I should have got a patent or my concept is nothing like the TrekDesk etc etc etc!
