      I think your doctor needs to upgrade the art. Maybe something a little sunnier.

    2. Sgt. Mom Says:

      And maybe a slipcover that would better match the paint on the walls…

    3. Michael Hiteshew Says:

      So many waiting rooms look interchangeable.

    4. Jason In LA Says:

      Good God that’s horrible….Are you in a free clinic in the south Bronx?

    5. dearieme Says:

      That seat is in a colour that a friend of mine refers to as “goose turd green”.

      Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

      C’mon, fill us in on the details…I haven’t seen this decor since my visit to the Russian dentist in Brooklyn. “you want the novocaine? there is extra charge…”

    8. Mike K Says:

      I spent an hour or two in doctors’ waiting rooms today. Decor was a bit better.

      I wonder if he’s connected to that Russian Wax business in LA? “You want the blich? Only five dollars more!”

    10. Will Says:

      Could not access the video, unfortunately. The dentist experience was dreadful. I’m fixated on that chair by the door. Notice the height from the floor in relation to the door handle. Great for Welsh Corgi’s and toddlers.

      Your comment gets me wondering, just for kicks, what the photo looks like with an overlay of a golden ratio grid from PhiMatrix:

      Photoshop has a plugin for the golden section, golden spiral, etc, but PhiMatrix is a lot cheaper and not bad for what it is.
      By this measure the objects line up reasonably well with the alleged divine proportions.

      I say alleged because some people don’t believe they’re so divine and just a bunch of Da Vinci Code style nonsense.
      It’s probably correct that most claims are overblown, but a decent book on the subject, Geometry of Design, makes a good case for the golden ratio in art. Moreover, there appears to be real evidence, intentional or not, in renaissance art and the occasional Ukrainian parliamentary brawl.
