Another week, another useless but amusing top ten for you. This time we ask the question, do you spend more time with your desk than any human should? Here are ten signs you may need to take a break…

Strange discolorations have appeared where your arms rest on your chair and desk.
Friends no longer bother calling your mobile, they skype you.
You have RSI in BOTH arms.
You spend more hours in your desk chair than not – this has resulted in a posture that resembles early humans.
When you’ve finished a long day of work you: watch TV on your computer, play second life or read your favourite blogs.

You wake up in the night from dreams where you were using your computer to do the same tasks you do when you are awake.
After switching desktop backgrounds, you have been heard to remark “A change is as good as a holiday” … no, no it isn’t.
…. And the number one sign you need to spend more time away from your desk:
You no longer like meals that require both a knife and fork because then you can’t use your mouse while eating!
