Yes, this week’s deep dive really is about chairs. This came about when Rad yelled out “chairs!” when we asked what she wanted to do. But you see when it comes to Queens, we can make a tech topic out of anything.
Rad takes a look at kneeling chairs and whether they’re actually good for your posture. She of course also got one from Facebook market place to test this for herself.
Rae also looks into the whether massage chairs are as good as the real deal and cites many, MANY studies to back up the science behind this.
Meanwhile Tegan looks at the history behind plane ejector seats and how they actually work.
