One of the attention grabbing headlines on the cover of my free "Metro" today reads "Please take a seat...or maybe not."
And, the article goes on to say "Scientists are increasingly warning that sitting for prolongued periods - EVEN IF YOU ALSO EXERCISE REGULARLY - could be bad for your health. And, it doesn't matter where the sitting takes place - at the office, at school, in the car or before a computer or TV -  just the overall number of hours it occurs."
I have a way to save these "scientists" a lot of time and a lot of money with a very simple and very true declaration : We are going to die no matter what we do. 
Once we accept this statement, we can just get on with what time we have in our lives, no?  It doesn't matter if we go to church, if we burn down a church, if we eat a steak on Friday, cuss, drink, covet, masturbate, celibate...you can be the healthiest person in the world and someone could drop a penny from the tenth story of highrise and it could hit you in the head and DEAD!
I have said it before and I will say it again, "If Death wants you, Death will take you."  So STOP!
STOP claiming that I'm going to get hepetitus from a salad bar, and STOP claiming that every thing in my house will cause cancer, cause hang nails, cause syphilis... JUST STOP!!!!  Please GOD!  Don't waste another moment testing to see how just plain SITTING, SITTING!  Just SITTING be it in a box, with a fox, in a hole, with a bowl,   in a car, by the bar, sitting here or sitting there we can now not sit down anywhere!!  Lest we court CERTAIN DEATH!
Just be assured that we are all going to die, some how and some way, and get over it.  Why don't you spend your time inventing reasons we can RELAX and enjoy our lives instead of stressing everyone out with the "ticking time bomb" assertions?
