I would consider the interface between the wall and floor a corner and sit there.

True true. Reminds me of a quote from Jessie Jackson, when he ran for president... While being shown through a plant where robots were making cars; he was asked, wasn't it wonderful... Yes, he said, but robots don't buy cars.

No confusion here ... finally decided to coment, that's all.
