    LOL this thread is turning into a weird version of Chinese whispers. The word is "Fake Chair" and its come back as "Fake Tits".
    Alone the post "Fake tits" will probably attract trolls like sharks to chum.

    A little OCD goes a long way, but I don't plan out the books on my coffee table.

    but how then do you make your guests recognize that you're an interesting person?

    I'm not sure I'm qualified to answer that.

    The copies of "How to Read a French Fry" and “How to Pick a Peach" do the trick.

    God. You are so maddeningly dense.

    I never indicated I'm in the process of "planning out" what books to put on my coffee table. I posted a diagram I created in Photoshop to figure out the layout and composition of our new living room. Obviously, since it's a fucking-computer-generated-diagram, everything is going to look artificial and perfectly placed.

    The point of putting the coffee table books on the coffee table was to get a sense of scale in the room and show more realistically how the room will be colored (all white furniture doesn't mean an all white room, precisely because of the objects and things that tend to lie about).

    Anyway, I know I'm going to deeply regret making this nuanced point, but coffee table books are inherently "planned out." They are meant to be placed on coffee tables--either because the content will be entertaining or amusing to guests, or because they are so large they cannot be stored elsewhere. Also a nicely made book is a beautiful object in its own right. There is nothing wrong or disigenuous or dishonest about using a coffee table book as a coffee table book.

    Of course, some will use them as an opportunity to give the impression of being an "interesting person," but that is a distinct issue. One can pick books he thinks will be good to leave on a coffee table because they are interesting without being motivated to prove how interesing his is to others. Failure to understand that distinction is a failure of intelligence, not an indication of taste.

    At any rate, at least I now understand why you and StephenHero resonate so strongly together.

    This should have been obvious, but I was kidding.

    That's the point. From you, it isn't obvious at all.
