Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

My friend whenever he sits down always rocks. He just sits in his chair and goes back and forth. He does this constantly and when I watch him I get a headache. How can I ask him to stop without offending him.

A: Dear MT,

Hey, I have some good news! An answer? No. I just saved 15% on my car insurance by switching to Geico.

Cheers,

A: Dear Mikal,

Hmmm. He may not be able to stop. I doubt that he does not realize he is rocking, but he may need to pu tin a serious effort to be able to stop it. Rocking is not usually a voluntary behavior. Check out this little tidbit: http://www.teenhealthfx.com/answers/1641.html
If you are good friends, you can probably mention to him that you've been noticing him rocking a lot lately. Is there anything you can do to help him control it? Etc.
