How much do you value sitting down? (10 Photos)

Not sure, but think these benches were made in Russia. Which would make sense, no?

  • AlphaZulu

    How much do you pay?
    Is it per 10 mins? Per hour?
    What happens when the time is up and the person is still sitting?
    Do the spikes then mess with your ass?
    Pretty interesting device!!!!

      It's a design, not something that's actually out there yet. the video that presents it says "0.50 Euro" and I believe it's something like 5-10 minutes. If you look it up on vimeo, "Pay & Sit" it shows that the guy uses the bench for a small break only. A drink of water and a small snack.

        …but what if that "snack" takes just a minute to long hmmm??

    Why dou you think it'd make sense?? I think it's something more USA-style…where you have to pay for everything..

      Having lived in Europe for five years and having to pay to use the public restrooms and 50% taxes don't even begin to complain about "USA-style" pay for everything.

        that shut him right up!

    Actually, the designer is german. Fabian Brunsing is his name, and the design is called "Pay & Sit". It's also at least two years old. Google it.

    I don't think it would work in real life. Maybe in an area with constant or frequent law enforcement attention, and even there it would be iffy. The engine that raises the spikes has to be something small and efficient for the constant use it would get, and I don't see it having a lot of power. So it wouldn't be very hard to break. Smashing rocks on the spikes to break the thing pushing them up, cutting them (doubtful, but with patience, possible), wrapping something around the plank, holding the spike in, etc. an innovative idea, maybe, but certainly not something that would work in most of the civilized world.

    • yup

      On another note: I would never ever pay to sit in a public place.

      I think this was probably invented to use in areas where the homeless people sleep on the benches at night. Wouldn't take long to figure out a way to defeat the purpose of the spikes.
      But, I betcha that when time runs out it starts to beep and the spikes come up slowly.

    People, there's grass. Right there. If you pay to sit on your own ass, have at it.

    • fat fingers

      il pay to have at your ass

      • Suzannes1974

        Smooth….I'll bet you have all the women at your feet.o.0

        • RMTHugger

          Puking no doubt.

        Another offer I just can refuse.

    • CapnS

      But what if the grass is wet? Imagine how HORRIBLE that would feel on your rear end!

      • Confused

        but at the same time the bench would be wet so it'd make no difference

        •!/profile.php?id=100001225731219 HellHathNoFury

          Except that the bench would be more fun.;)

  • MichaelGS

    Russia? my first thoughts were Japan. I did just read the crazy asian chicks post so might be a bit prejudiced

  • skainviatofane

    thats shit dudess

  • uberbrie

    This would never fly with me…some poor drunk person walking home from the Bar would just want to sit down then BAM…sitting down would never be the same again.

  • Equalizer

    It's too expensive for those street beggars to sleep there.

    • greg

      that's exactly what i was thinking.

    • Brandon

      Yeah, i think that's the point of them too. Besides, if you really needed to sit down, you could always just sit on the corners where there are no spikes.

  • Sheng

    In mother Russia, you sit no chair … chair sits you.

  • aleXTC

    I don't know how anyone thinks that this is a good or cool idea. What is the f-ing world coming to that they have to charge to sit down on a bench. Like hell hath no said, sit on the damn ground or stand your lazy ass up. Jesus tap dancing Christ.

  • GreenerBlues

    In Soviet Russia, bench carve you!

    •!/profile.php?id=100001225731219 HellHathNoFury

      You win!

    • anarcrust

      In Amerika, asshole make new bench. In Soviet Russia, bench make new asshole

  • Htownpunk

    What asshole invented this?!

    •!/profile.php?id=100001225731219 HellHathNoFury

      In Soviet Russia, bench invents assholes!!

  • Gordon of Hesselink

    That's harsh capitalism. Or harsh communism, who knows

  • anarcrust

    Frank was tired of life as a bench. One night, after a particularly raucous couple did unspeakable things on top of him, Frank decided from now on, if he had to be there, he'd join in.

  • zerocool

    i would put a big rock on it to fuck it up or put a piece of plywood or something similar on it and DEFEAT the purpose!!! stupid lame ass idea.

  • doo dah doo doo

    ohhhh…. that makes sense. i was like wtf? but yeah, those goddamned bums.

    "My advice to you is to do what your parents did: get a JOB, sir! The bums will always lose!"

    • anarcrust

      The dude will not abide!

  • zafedz

    I think this is to prevent from anybody sleeping on it….

  • Dawgsman81

    That bench is such a pain in the ass!

  • Ivan

    In cold places homeless people would be protected by layers and layers of clothing. That'd likely feel like a massage. On warm places folks would sit on the back support and put their feets on the seat. Where I come from someone would steal the engine and sell the metal parts for profit. In most of the US, particulalry big cities, someone would fake injury and sue the city and designer. In Detroit that would make a great bonfire.
    In short, this got to be the most retarded idea I've seen in a long time…
    The only motivating factor here is… can I get a job design such crap?

    • cubanitagirl

      you are right on point lol .

  • Martin

    Can you say disable with a tube of crazy glue squeezed into the slot?
