Can I suggest a slight revision to your final sentence?

The trend of mankind to stop activity ( farming to pen pushing) and sit down more and more is surely apparant.
'Labour saving devices' were gladly accepted in the past.
Your 'experiment' is using students who are likely to contain a lot of fidgets and who dont care for forms.
But ticking boxes is a lifestyle for a great many. Sedentary you see.

Fair point Patrick, you've topped my joke.

I was aiming at kindly humour but am just too old to do that text speak 'colon close brackets' thing the young folk use to indicate such on the web. If my comment didn't have that affect then I'm sorry and apologise to Chris.
