IKEA’s ‘Lack’: Lack of quality and just simply sucks

Got this piece of ‘furniture’ at IKEA local store for $12.99. I bought it for a single photo session not related to the blog subject.

Well, the name says for itself: ‘Lack’. Lack of quality, indeed. Check this out how this piece of furniture looks just after an hour of a very gentle use:

Pressed paper inner core covered with thin layer of pressed wood chip waste.

Good suggestion for IKEA: learn origami and make ‘furniture’ out of plain paper. But please, put a note somewhere saying “For use at IKEA demo booth only. Not intended for home use”.

The name speaks for itself

However, what should I expect from the thirteen bucks furniture, and also if their boss is still riding public transportation to/from work and travels economy class, – all this just to save money?

Are you a soldier or a chicken?

Yet another crappy idea to combine two things together and then sell it online for $30.

A Soldier that chicken

Description says: “This Chicken model was originally developed as the main character for use in a Private Company’s game”.

R.T.F.M.

RPG-7 manual states that “no person or ammunition should be closer than 98ft (30m) behind the launcher” – to avoid injuring the former or igniting the latter with the rocket engine gases or with the leftovers of the booster charge. Moreover “there should be no obstacles closer than 6.5ft (2m) behind the launcher” – this is to avoid burning the shooter. So what do we see in this picture? 3 severely burned freedom fighters! (the one on the right may survive though)

But on the other hand, members of the opposing force would surely appreciate the poor level of gun safety training among the guys pictured.

A Soldier or a Gay biker?

Gay Soldier

Soldier: FAIL

This 3D model of a “Soldier” was published at Turbosquid.com

The model’s description says: “Excellent head, high detail, with human ears, and good nose”.

I don’t know.. this helmet, these 2x wide open eyes.. IMO, this guy looks mostly like gay biker rather than a soldier.

Game character soldier should look something like these folks:
