Are you sitting comfortably? Well, you're going to die, you filthy sitting-addict.
There's far too much in this story to rip up and I just can't keep a straight face while reading it so I'll just look at the concluding line...
Diabetes experts point out that sitting is not bad for us in moderation but can be addictive and harmful in the long-run.
...and laugh. Sitting is addictive? I'll bet it's harder to give up than heroin. Moderate that horrible sitting habit. Moderate it, I say! A child might see you sitting and think it's okay to copy you, and then it'll be your fault when their pancreas explodes.
Doesn't bother me. I'm already smoking and drinking so according to the rabid and fearful drones, I died years ago. The only reason I'm still around is that the doctors haven't found me yet so there's no death certificate. It's illegal to be dead without the proper paperwork.
All the same, I look forward to the first sitting cessation officers, secondary sitting and the removal of all seating from schools for the sake of the cheeeldren. Any day now.
