Empty guest bedroom [Jul. 9th, 2007|09:32 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
My guest bedroom has been empty for awhile, but I never really noticed because repairs had been going on to fix the upstairs patio (from underneath, through the guest bedroom ceiling).

Anyway, it's now completely empty... not a single piece of furniture.

I'm thinking ball pit. But I think jwz looked into this and found it prohibitively expensive. (but I think that was for the entirety of the DNA Lounge, a bit more square footage...)

Noam built one of these for Burning Man a few years ago (it's now at work). I seem to recall it was under 10 cents per ball, maybe more like 5 cents?

a cheaper alternative might be a foam block pit, there's probably dumpsters full of that stuff somewhere. it'd be bouncier anyway.

I think it was the ball washer that was prohibitive.

Especially the way getting "foreign labor" is looking these days...

Why not both?

"Uh, yeah, so you can stay over, but the guest room is full of balls. If you're comfortable sleeping with balls, you're more than welcome to stay."

I always said if I buy my own house I'd HAVE to have a ball pit... so ball pit all the way!

...just be careful who you invite over ;)

Yeah, I figured I'd need around 300,000 balls.

On the plus side, it can end this way.

there is no end to the jokes

I guess you'd never have someone question your balls again.

If you go with the balls, make sure to invest in live ferrets for the room.

And then on the other side of the wall, away from the door... install RAID array.

Where am I supposed to crash when I potentially move there in a few months?
