When you take stretch breaks every hour it’s a good idea to get up and step away from the keyboard. It is less obvious what you should do when the stretch-break notification comes and you’ve been using a standing desk the entire time.

[3.5 months ago]
@mdosch I’m American. All I know about 90°C is that it‘s a reasonable sauna temperature; the literature tends to focus on saunas at 80°C and 100°C. I haven’t been in a sauna in _months_, and my body misses it.

Today I learned that onions are a sulfur-rich food. You can experience this yourself if you caramelize down roughly seven onions and eat half the batch in one sitting. Try not to do this if you’re going to be around people with functioning noses.
