Cool and Smokin’
Why wouldn’t you want to sleep in the middle of a giant video game console? That’s what Atari is banking that men my own age are wanting in order to fulfill latent 8-year-old Space Invaders/Combat/Joust fantasies.

Are we lazy and full of ourselves? Absolutely, but it brings to mind a proverb I once heard:
