Keeping fit while Pepperminting

For those who like myself might be concerned that sitting at the PC hour after hour compiling your kernel is adding those unwanted inches around the waistline this is for you

Are you trying to save me a heart attack, or give me one ?

If I wanted to give you a heart attack I'd ask you what you thought of the rugby on Saturday  :D

The swim desk idea is brilliant, emegra.  Just thinking about dog paddling while Pepperminting makes my lower back sore!   Below is a good little article that should hopefully help dissuade anyone from even thinking about beginning an exercise program.

The Treadmill Originated in Prisons

BY the mag

Quote
Prisoners would step on the 24 spokes of a large paddle wheel, climbing it like a modern StairMaster. As the spokes turned, the gears were used to pump water or crush grain. (Hence the eventual name treadmill.) In grueling eight-hour shifts, prisoners would climb the equivalent of 7,200 feet. The exertion, combined with poor diets, often led to injury and illness (as well as rock-hard glutes)...
