Squat, Don't Sit.

Squat, Don’t Sit.

L of Death Note, squatting as usual

Once more, this proves we are slaves to social conditioning. Because sitting languidly on a “throne” was deemed more civilized than the ways of crude native folk, we have embraced it as the proper way to sit.

If you have ever felt, as many, many people do, that after you have evacuated, there is still something left, here is the reason:

The anal canal is UNSTRAIGHTENED when seated. Bowel evacuation when seated results frequently in OBSTRUCTIVE CONSTIPATION…Adopt a relaxed, FULL SQUAT POSTURE and the anal canal STRAIGHTENS.

So that’s why L sits like that.

It goes beyond constipation, though, as, detailed at Nature’s Platform. And among the experts on the subject is a certain Dr. Alexander Kira:

…While we regard the use of the water closet as natural, we represent only a relatively small percentage of the world’s population, and a percentage that may be said, in an absolute sense, to be wrong, insofar as we have allowed civilization to interfere with our biological functioning.

Found another “don’t get a job” post too. “Companies pay you for your time, not for the value you produce.” I don’t think that’s true all the time, but that’s why I don’t understand web designers and similar freelancers that charge by the hour.

  1. Interesting post. At first I wasn’t sure what you were talking about at the first part. hehe.

    Anyways, on my method though, for charging on a per hour you can gauge the timeline of a project. If that projects exceeds a timeline you can charge your client for the excess time.

    Great blog by the way! :D

  2. uh, well, i still don’t imagine myself squatting in the near future. hehe.

    in that new post, the thing i most agree with is:

    “If I will need to work my arse off, I’d rather do it for something that I own”. kurek!

  3. @Michael: Thank you very much!

    @Ferdz: Haha, I wanted to be as euphemistic as possible! Ah yes, you have a point regarding time-based charging, though I’m still a n00b (read: has no right to charge exorbitant fees) at freelance. Perhaps if it were a full time job I’d use the method. ;) Congrats to a fellow “Best Designed Filipino Blogs 2006” winner! Haha.

    @Corsarius: Yupp! I like to squat at times, or sit even when there’s no chair. Ehehehe.
