Jason’s Standing Desk. Click to embiggen.

The above pic is of Jason’s standing desk set-up that we talk about in the show. The classic Gra-Lab photo timer is for sprints. The Nikon Super COOLSCAN 5000 ED is for turning plastic photos into digital images. The Mossberg 500 with Knox recoil reduction stock and Surefire forearm are for door to door marketers. Yes, there is a trigger lock on it but you can’t see it from this angle. The CD-R’s are for burning Audible.com books to CD for the old cars that don’t have digital hook-ups. Yes, I know it’s archaic but whatcha gonna do? The desk is a Safco Muv Stand-up Adjustable Height Workstation from Amazon. It’s the white version with the wheels removed. You can’t see it but I also use a Genuine Joe Anti-Fatigue Mat.
