    I blame Sir Issac Newton

    If he hadn't invented gravity I would find it much easier to get off of a chair.
    It seems that the longer I sit in a chair (most, not all chairs) the harder it is to stand up.
    Chairs without arms are the worst.
    The longer I sit on a chair the greater the gravitational pull on me and the harder it is to get off that chair.
    As an example, I can spend hours sitting or sleeping in my recliner and stand up with minimal problems.
    However sitting for 45 minutes in an office chair (no arms) and I need to use the kitchen counter as a leverage point to stand up.
    It's almost like certain chairs double the gravitational pull.

    Don't you guys know anything?

    He's the guy my dog hates for some reason he doesn't quite understand.
    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    Oh no. First they want your guns, then they want your chair.

    Don't disarm me, and don't disarm my chair!

    I think you've got the makings of a new movement. But, let me guess, it was a new movement that made you need to get up in the first place, right?

    Yeah I guess existing in earth's gravity well for a lot of years will do that. Sometimes the space station looks pretty inviting ...

    I see the medications have worn off again.
    Someone get a moderator to go back into that
    "secret" room and grab another 50,000 pills.
    Tell him to hurry.
    Remember:
    Life is short.
    Make sure you spend as much time as possible
    on the internet arguing with strangers about politics.
