    I'd rather do physical labor than mental labor.
    I can work all day physically.

    What is meant by mental work? Like homework, or just thinking to solve a problem?

    For the purpose of my argument I would say a mental worker would be eg. an office worker and a physical worker would be an electrician.

    I know what I'd rather do ;o)

    Mental thanks, thumbs down to physical.
    Who has a shorter life span the person with physical labor or the person with mental labor.
    While physical labor is good sometimes, can be fatal as an occupation depends what is being done.

    Physical labor is FUN!
    Well I enjoy it anyway....
    I always feel well and complete after I've done some physical labor.
    Like now that its winter, I enjoy going out with my sister (because our dads been gone) and chopping wood for our stove and hauling it all in. (we live in the middle of the Ozarks and don't really have a working heater).
    I get a weird satisfaction knowing that I worked my body. I don't necessarily get a satisfaction from working my brain.

    I take pleasure in mental and physical accomplishments. Though I do know what you mean about the satisfaction physical labor brings. Balance is the key.
