We can thank Charles Darwin for the ergonomic office chair. Why? Known as a notorious workaholic, he spent many years traveling the world to collect specimens at which some point he had to sit down to study them.
Office chairs were not invented back then, so Darwin slapped on some wheels on the front of his chair so he could work faster. It was the first of its kind and it was definitely not the last.
The office chair actually went into mass production long before Darwin's ideas were widely embraced. But we have industrialization to thank for its advent.
Do you sit on an ergonomic office chair? If not, you'll want to consider getting one. Because you know, sitting too long, could literally fucking kill you.
