    Same. And it's very comfortable too. Sometimes I start doing that randomly when I want to rest, I've gotten strangers approaching me asking if I was okay.

    Uh. What? They get out at midday here.

    That's nice. I heard Scandinavians take the same approach to teaching hours. Asians take education *too seriously* sometimes it's ridiculous.

    Yes. It is part of my stretching routine. I also do what I call "namaste feet" where I squat down and balance on the sides of my feet with their soles pressed together.

    I'm hypermobile though, so it just isn't fair. I can go a year without stretching and still touch my hands to the ground flat in a forward bend without bending my knees. My too long arms probably help.

    This is the correct way to squat.

    For a time I couldn't even do a flat-footed walk due to wearing heels all day, even indoors. Had a bad case of Barbie foot. Now it's fine cause I do some gym every year.

    I wonder if Senseye is correct. Lack of furniture? Flexibility? Or maybe toilets? Ha.
