    No one likes me and I slouch. That must be the reason.

    I’m glad it’s not the halitosis and body odour, it’s gotta be my terrible slouch.

    In other news, studies have shown that pain leads to arthritis.

    This is a must for RiffTrax to have fun with.

    Wait, there is something profound.  The students are advised to seek help from the science teacher.  Imagine how impossible that is now.  Instead, they would be directed to their preacher, or the celebrity self help web page on “posture”.

    Ok, it’s cheesy, but… A  couple of years ago when I was hunting for a job, my ironclad rule was always to do yoga the night before a job interview. Felt like it helped to me.

    I’m a 50s kid and my aunt was alway’s harping on me not to slouch.  No wonder I read boing boing, I’m such a sucker.

    “poor posture is the root of all social misery, poor health, and general malaise”

    Finally, medical science figured out that the natural position of the spine is NOT upright like a toy soldier. it IS slightly forward. That is what the human spine has evolved for.

    Posture is a lost art.  It’s mind-boggling being around a bar these days, or a school at prom time, and seeing so many young men and women dressed up fancy and looking like refugees from a costume party, simply because their posture is so poor.  Movie awards (Oscars, Grammies, et. al.)  are another great source of amusement and disappointment.
