Star Trek's Commander Riker Was Amazing At Sitting Down

You walk into a room. You're standing up, feeling pretty good. You're master of all you survey. But now it's time to sit down. How to sit while maintaining ownership of the room? Try Commander Riker's tried-and-true technique. It's amazing.

We all know I prefer to stand up, all things considered. But now that I've seen Riker in action, I might have to sit more often. This video, uploaded by WeirdHat and spotted by Tim Norton, documents Riker's moves:

- Lift the leg, go over the back.

- Sit.

- Resume eye contact.

- Carry on the conversation as if you didn't just sit down in the most boss way possible.

Don't forget to tuck your shirt after standing back up.

On a related note I've finally gotten around to watching Deep Space 9. While Season 1 is kind of boring, things really ramp up moving forward start of Season 2 onwards.

Can't wait to get to the "good" seasons of 4+
