Out of the Blue

My dad and step-mom are going to spend a night here this week, and in the midst of preparations we discovered that the fold-out couch (hey, nothing but the best for my folks), has a broken bolt in it, causing one of the little bars that connects to another of the little bars in there to no longer be connected. In messing around trying to put the misfiring fold-out mechanism into proper order I have learned that a convertible sofa is far more complex than I ever would have imagined... in fact I think it's probably far more complex than some convertible cars. I recall a great line from a comedian (though not who said it) about how he thought we put a man on the moon just so we could use it in phases that begin "We can put a man on the moon, but we can't <insert thing we should be able to do here>." I'm guessing before Apollo XI, this phrase began with: "We can make a sofa that turns into a bed, but we can't..."

I wonder if we will see a law an order episode based on this. I would sure love to see that. I love that show.
