Ask Slashdot: How Do You Stay Fit At Work?

Drachemorder Simple stuff (635 comments)

I have a couple of exercise bands at my desk which I use when my hands are free. They don't take up much space, and you can get some with pretty decent resistance. You could also get a couple of ~8-10 pound exercise balls; tossing those from hand to hand can be a pretty decent light workout. Standard free weights are an option too. Honestly, you're just not going to get a lot of cardio in while at your desk. But you can do some light strength training and toning, which will help keep your metabolism up a bit if nothing else.

Star Trek XI Plot Details Revealed

Drachemorder Re:It's worse than that. He's dead, Jim. (220 comments)

I have been desperately hoping that this is exactly what they do. One would no longer have any need to maintain continuity with forty years of plots, many of which (at least in TOS) were never really intended to be consistent. There would be an essentially blank slate. I think the huge amount of existing material that needs to be accounted for is one thing that's holding Star Trek back --- if you're inconsistent with any minor detail of Trek canon, you get a million hardcore fans screaming at you and ignoring whatever good points your work happened to contain. The writers are practically afraid to try anything really new. What better way to take Star Trek back to its roots than to break the timeline and leave us with a very much uncertain future where anything could happen?
