Jubeebee: I wish I had a treadmill desk, but the standing desk I do have is pretty sweet.
Fark_Guy_Rob: Given the current levels of obesity and the associated health risks with sitting all day - I think these are great. Just being able to stand when you feel like it seems like a good thing.
special20: Hasn't that been around for a while?
Grapple: *huff huff huff* "Hello... how can *huff huff huff* I help *huff huff huff* you today?"Yeah, that's going to be a fun call. thanks.
Cymbal: I'm gonna need stilts if I'm gonna continue to fark my assistant on her desk. But she could use the excercise, getting too many rounded corners lately.
flynn80: Who doesn't want to work in an office that smells like a gym?
monoski: I am in a wheelchair so this could be a non-issue for me. Haters gonna hate, I be rolling
divZero: i setup my treadmill as a desk for a little while to try this out. Just clamped a bookshelf - shelf to the handles and set my laptop on that.The results were iffy. If i did not have to do any major thinking (i'm a software developer), like if i was just pounding out some boilerplate then it was fine, i could walk and code all day. However, my mindless code monkey days are rare now and I have to spend a lot more time thinking though larger problems and thats when the treadmill becomes too distracting and I end up back at my desk.
Cymbal: flynn80: Who doesn't want to work in an office that smells like a gym?Yeah, this.It's always going to smell like freshly showered vagina. Not a bad thing though if you like to eat pussy.
give me doughnuts: Cymbal: I'm gonna need stilts if I'm gonna continue to fark my assistant on her desk. But she could use the excercise, getting too many rounded corners lately.It's a convenient height for become a cunning linguist, and that lets her finally enjoy it for once.
Silverstaff: Heck, at one place I worked, they had an employees suggestion box.I suggested an exercise room. Nothing much, maybe a treadmill and exercise bike, maybe a couple of weight machines, nothing much, but maybe people could do something productive on their breaks or lunch.The boss practically laughed that one out of the room, said no way would they buy exercise equipment, and even if they did they were scared shiatless of the liability concerns if an employee hurt themselves on the job while exercising.
gregario: Jubeebee: I wish I had a treadmill desk, but the standing desk I do have is pretty sweet.tell me about it. I'm thinking of getting one.....
