@sozobe,
Just read the article. The smoking analogy worked for me, even if it's not perfectly logical: you can't undo the harmful effects of smoking by jogging.

I'm gonna start doing stairs at lunch and ****. And re-up on cod liver oil to keep my good cholesterol levels righteous.

I walk until my legs can't take any more, five times a week, at work. Then walk in the park many evenings.

I realized I should have died about 15 years ago cuz I've had variants of desk jobs for about 30 years

Hi.

No, down here.

I'm sitting on my new exercise ball and it's too damn short. Grr.

65 cm my aunt fanny.

Even too short though I see how it could be good. (I've been bouncing a little ever since I got on it.)

Sure; it's big enough that we can both rest our beers on it.

@sozobe,
Update!

I guess it actually expands as you inflate it -- I had it mostly inflated at that point and didn't think it could get much bigger. It can. It's now a very good height. I like it!
