    Unions order workers to sit on their arses - By Lester Haines, The Register, UK
    We at El Reg have decided we rather like the TUC after it warned that the health of thousands of workers is at risk due to to excessive standing. According to the BBC, the TUC reckons 200,000 workers blow two million sick days a year due to leg trouble. Accordingly, the British economy could benefit from more sitting down.

    Actually, there is some medical logic to all this - varicose veins, joint damage and swelling are just some of the things awaiting the vertical worker.
