Chairs Suck

It sounds absurd to claim that chairs are dangerous. They’re comfortingly ubiquitous and seem almost too boring to be harmful. But when one considers that the average Briton, for instance, spends over fourteen hours seated per day, relying on chairs for support while working, relaxing, commuting, eating, and sometimes sleeping, it’s easy to believe that chairs could have a serious impact on public health.

If you have ten minutes to spare today, read Colin McSwiggen’s takedown on chairs. Seriously. It’s absolutely fascinating.
