strangeluck: "Did you hear about Bob? He had another sexual harassment complaint filed against him for breathing heavily on the phone with the receptionist, he swears it's cause he's on the treadmill, but she didn't buy it.Oh and Janet tripped and face-planted her desk, causing major trauma to her nose and cheek AND broke out five of her teeth, she's threatening to sue the company by golly!Good times, good times."
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Ugh I can't wait until I can leave cube-world behind. 4 months and counting...
Marcus Aurelius: I highly recommend this desk.Just standing up makes a huge difference compared to sitting all day./marcus welby says hi
wildcardjack: Standing is reasonable. Treadmill is multitasking, no greater sin in diminishing human ability.
quietwalker: There are studies, for example, that do show prolonged sitting is bad for you. What proponents of standing desks won't tell you is that there's actually ~more~ studies that show prolonged standing is bad for you! The severe pains that retail salesfolks and cashiers experience from literally being on their feet all day? That's exacerbated when you have a fixed desk and have no need to leave it. (The best voices in the industry say that for both physical and mental health, we should take at least 5 minute walk every hour or so to avoid the problems with both prolonged sitting AND standing)
