    All offices I've worked in the last 5 years have had more than one shower. You either have to find a shower that is not used a lot - always near where the sales and marketing team is situated - or if you are male go on the loose "rota".

    It kills the weakest thereby reducing long-term sickness numbers.

    OK, just for tulips and giggles, 1 hour cycle, 20 mile swim, 12 hour cycle.
    Not going to do that.

    Not hard for you to Google the benefits of exercise.

    That's because they go in and infect the permies.

    Also I've known contractors who contracts were ended immediately when they have had heart attacks or terminal cancer.

    Cycle 8 hours. Walk 25 hours. Assuming I don't stop and was fit.
