Standing on one foot/leg

Post by akz » Thu Jun 22, 2006 3:33 am

Hello,

The question is: Why does a man or a women, have a tendency to stand after few minutes on one leg/foot. In other words, they will give more pressure on one leg than the other, why? Some peoples will say because they are tired, or its easier for them..but these answeres are not enough for me.

Please try to give me detailed information(s). Thank you very much.

Yea I'd agree with that. I have noticed myself doing this many times waiting on the bus to get to University :-(.

Why are human legs unequal?

I always thought that when we did that, we were just trying to rest the opposite leg. :( I don't go to a university, I'm just now in high school! Lol. Have you ever seen a horse rest on its legs?
