I tried to do that, but couldn't sit for long in this kind of position without my legs getting numb at some time. So maybe it's a matter of being used to it from childhood on.

I know though that doing squats with additional weight is something to be careful with to not damage your knees.
Yeah, its pretty common among baseball catchers. Some have to have several knee surgeries during their career as a stop-gap to minimize the process that wears away at the cartillage until eventually there's none left.
