Perhaps you're just cracking wise, but just in case you're not, let me tell you that I bought a motorised desk last year, and now spend about 30-40% of my work day standing. My back trouble has all but disappeared.

It's not so much a standing-versus-sitting thing as it is a not-staying-in-the-exact-same-position-9-or-10-hours-a-day thing.

I've been told that mainlining heroin is also a pleasurable experience, supposedly worth every bit of what you pay for it.

(I drink coffee and/or tea almost daily, myself. Just pointing out that something that you perceive as "pleasurable" does not automatically make it a good idea.)
