If you had aspirations of creating a cool work environment but can't quite squeeze in a slide, abandon your hopes now: you'll literally never be trendy.

That's according to online gaming site MobileSlots,com, anyway: it's created the definitive list of the items that make up the coolest offices - and the slide is in the number one slot.

Other amenities include a personal barista, a "puppy/kitten room" (awesome until it turns into a "dogs/cats tearing each other apart by the throat" room), a gym, nap rooms - and a personal butler.

More - how do we put this? - "achievable" items include floor-to-ceiling windows (ie. daylight - not to be sniffed at), a garden and a creche.

Bafflingly, "a chandelier" is also included. Apparently "cool" does not equal "tasteful".
