The ultimate way to escape office meetings

Unfortunately, the "B-52 Stratofortress Ejector Seat Chair" isn't functional.

In these times of extreme economic uncertainty, one must always be ready to bolt if necessary. And what better way to stay prepared than an ejector seat?

The "B-52 Stratofortress Ejector Seat Chair" is modeled after seats in B-52 bombers, according to Coolest-Gadgets. It comes from the ever-quirky Motoart, which salvages old aircraft parts and turns them into everything from furniture to sculptures--though it's often hard to tell which is which.

Unfortunately, its latest Cold War-era creation doesn't appear to have functional projectile abilities. So much for those parachutes, golden or otherwise.
