There’s not much to say about this picture other than it made me laugh out loud. Helloooo people who invent useless things!
This was the thinking behind an experiment performed by two scientists at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Researchers James Levine and Jennifer Miller have designed a vertical work station that allows workers to use their computer while walking on a treadmill at a speed of their choice. (Whoa, Nelly…slow that Mustang down!)
Listen, I can’t even type and talk on the phone at the same time, much less walk on a treadmill. In fact; I can barely walk on a treadmill and watch TV at the same time. This seems harder to manage than an audition for Cirque du Soleil. The whole concept gives intrinsic exercise and physical well being a bad name. And that name is DUMB.
I’m highly convinced that adding MORE multi-tasking to our lives is not the answer to fitness or weight management. Could this activity be any less mindful? Where’s the joy? Where’s the fun? Where’s the shower?
Come on James and Jennifer, you can do better than this. But hey, thanks for the chuckle!
