[Softpedia]Stand Instead of Sitting at Your Monitor and Never Grow Fat or Sick - Page 7

post #61 of 66
What if I work outside in a mining pit for 12 hours a day 14 days straight, then have 14 days of a few hours at my PC?

So many studies like this don't include me..

 I've stand up for sometime when I knew myself I sat too long, I will feel uncomfortable and I tend to want to walk around as well.

Standing in one spot really doesn't bother me (cash register), nor does unloading a truck on delivery days. I just think you have to get used to being on your feet all day period without being in pain.

It would also make my Wrangler seem as aerodynamic as a Prius in comparison. It would also probably make my Wrangler seem as gas efficient as a Prius as well.

just just no. cars shouldn't be made more "polar bear friendly" or "drivable while standing up" just kills driving imo. look at bmw, they are downgrading from a V10 to a V8 for emissions (even though it apparently feels like an upgrade) and driving while standing up would suck big time, just imagine kobe's car biggrin.gif

I think that also depends largely on genetics, standing for more than an hour has always killed my back. But I can go play football all day and be just fine.
