EPIC WIN: College students lose chairs to school fanfare, find quick fixes
Xi’an University of Science and Technology, located in the city of Xi’an in central China’s Shaanxi province, celebrates its 70th anniversary on October 13, 2011. On the afternoon before the celebration day, the university authorities had all chairs in student dormitories pulled onto the square and neatly arranged for the mega-event. Students left bereft of chairs and yet programmed to lead a sedentary life invented ways to come to grips with the standing issue.
Stand a water bottle in a shoe to achieve better balance.
A suitcase with cushions on top.
Water bottle on top of a folding stool.
Or two folding stools stacked together.
Lotus position in front of a foldable laptop table
Sitting on one leg?
Hung from the loft bed on two strings.
On two thermos.
On a bamboo mat
On his knees.
Or simply live with it.
