This might not need to be said to this fairly active community, but I still feel it needs to be said being that I lost a good friend to it.

"It" refers to Deep-Vein Thrombosis (DVT), which basically is a blood clot you get from sitting in one position for too long. So if you ever find yourself going to be ... "inactive" for numerous hours, take a minute or two every few hours to roll over, grab a snack, use the restroom, chase squirrels, parkour, or whatever to reset your blood flow.

    I can't source it at the moment, but I read a little while back that almost all of the negative effects of office jobs could be negated by a 2 minute walk once per hour.

    Great, yet another add on to my list of things I'm paranoid about...I'll put it right next to me turning to a zombie overnight and assassins creed comes to life.

    I listen to Dubstep at my desk and am constantly moving. Will parkour though the office. Great advice. On the same note the below was playing as I read this thread and that otter is a dub step master!

    yeah I made this at around the time of that 'time slippage' occurance. Lincoln said this would be a possible side effect. I still wonder what @BobbyDigi, @Theironhand and @Tushon said.

    I didn't worry about those two before, still don't, but now I can't get Assassin Zombies out of my mind.

    This is the secret point of my tea fiendishness. The teapot is in another room. You gotta get up to turn on the kettle, then go back again to pour it. Basically impossible to stay seated for more than 30 minutes.

    Urgh.... I miss my standing desk. Coming up on 4 months in to the new job and I'm still not used to sitting all day again. Plus, the reduction in the amount of posterior padding results in being sore from sitting for too long. That alone makes me get up and walk around frequently.

    I'm starting the Couch to 5K program again. The one thing I've learned besides that fact that it really helps in losing weight and that it gives you more energy, is that I hate running. I already knew all three of these facts but I'm rediscovering them again.
