Don't know much about the desks, but quite a few people at work use them. The one thing I did notice is they all have an anti-fatigue mat to go with it so I would make sure to look out for one of those as well

Work is promoting SCRUM and I guess part of that (or not, I have no idea) is standing desks. FUCK

All day standup meetings? Sounds cool bro.

Why not just give everyone a treadmill while they're at it?

Nothing like trying to type or read while walking.

Is it possible to use a standing desk without looking pretentious?

Yes when you inevitably have to sit down and your chair is raised as high as it goes and your keyboard is about at level with your chin you look like a retard instead of a douche

The only one that doesn't look goofy is this chick with a banging body. Nice view standing up

My friend and I once met some Bengals cheerleaders at a dance/bar style place. We were talking to them for a while, dancing with them and all of a sudden one of them told my friend she refuses to have sex outside of marriage then was grilling him on his sexual past. It killed the mood.

It's really not hard if you're walking at a slow, steady pace (2mph or so). I used to read and type all the time while walking on the treadmill at about that speed without any problems.

My biggest concern with using a standing desk with a treadmill would be getting all sweaty and gross due to the constant exercise. That's not good in an office environment.

I've been standing with no mat, and no actual desk for a few days now to test the waters. My keyboard and mouse are a few inches lower than they should be, and the monitor is probably 18 inches too low, but I still kinda like it. I'm more prone to move around as well, since I'm already up.

I feel like the standing desk market has to be pretty sweet. People who are dumb enough to buy into standing desks are probably also dumb enough to buy into buying $40 worth of laminate, particle board and steel for $400 because the marketing has the same words as the standing desk marketing.
