Sitting is the new smoking

Post  pinhedz on Sun Mar 23, 2014 8:13 am

The trendy health commentators are now saying that sitting for 6 hours is equivalent to smoking a pack of cigarettes. Shocked

yep, Juan has one of those treadmill-activated 'puters that solves a lot of problemos.  Truthfully, Office Treadmills are becoming more common in Kalifornia, a prefecture which some are calling the Buzz Lightyear of humanitay

I read that thread, and saw a documentary about fischer in which they talked about his father
When he was young he looked like someone who had to make the most out of his ego to get through and once he wasn't in that good shape of being really had it difficult

I also read a quote of him that said something like It is when you stop trusting your own mind you're taking the step to insanity (think he said this refering to his religious sect phase)

Here it is

... I think once you start distrusting your own mind you're finished. From there you just get more and more confused. Once you think that your own mind is not your friend any more-your own conscience and your own mind is not your friend-then I think you are on your way to insanity. You have been stripped bare. All your defenses are gone.

it's really a problem; trying your own is troubling, following others is troubling.

he also said something about school, don't know when; that school is a waste, that the kids are silly and the teachers are sillier

Bobby Fischer quotes.

"You don't learn anything in school. It's just a waste of time. You lug around books and all and do homework. They give too much homework. You shouldn't be doing homework. Nobody's interested in it. The teachers are stupid. They shouldn't have any women in there. They don't know how to teach. And they shouldn't make anyone go to school. You don't want to go, you don't go, that's all. It's ridiculous. I don't remember one thing I learned in school. I don't listen to weakies. My two and a half years in Erasmus High I wasted. I didn't like the whole thing. You have to mix with all those stupid kids. The teachers are even stupider than the kids. They talk down to the kids. Half of them are crazy. If they'd have let me, I would have quit before I was sixteen."

"They're all weak, all women. They're stupid compared to men. They shouldn't play chess, you know. They're like beginners. They lose every single game against a man. There isn't a woman player in the world I can't give knight-odds to and still beat."

 Shocked

Not surprising after having read a bit about him. I mean radical statements

While sitting and smoking, down-on-his-luck ex-sportswriter Ed Eddie Willis is hired by disreputable fight promoter Professor Nik Benko to promote his latest find, an unknown but easily exploitable punchy phenom from Argentina Town

I believe that Spock said don't smoke.

I don't know if he ever made a statement on sitting.
