That’s it! We’re moving to Russia! Just kidding (because it kinda sucks over there unless you’re rich … like almost everywhere else, actually). Still, this is good news for humans:
"This is a bold move by the Russian government, and it sits in unison with the newly-ignited global debate on GMOs and the presence of Monsanto in the food supply. It also follows the highly-debated ruling by the World Health Organization that Monsanto’s glyphosate-based Roundup is a ‘probable carcinogen.’"

UPDATE: Now Northern Ireland (and Scotland, Germany, Greece and Latvia). That’s it, we’re moving to N. Ireland!
ANOTHER UPDATE: Uruguay abandons TiSA. That’s it, we’re moving to Uruguay!
Got the below email today. Probably because they saw that I have several books on Amazon (here, here and here), they read them, thought they sucked, and decided it would be best if I took a warehouse job. I must say, though, I’ve never seen a sweat-shop (a.k.a. warehouse) job look so good.
"Dear Bill, I found your resume online and believe you could make you [sic] an excellent fit for a part-time Warehouse position in our Nashville facility. Since this is a startup operation [ed. note: “Startup?” It’s freaking Amazon, not exactly a “startup” anymore], we’re looking for people who are comfortable working in a fast-paced warehouse environment as well as engaging with customers, and we think you have what it takes.
What would you’ll [sic] be doing: Successful team members will understand that they play a pivotal role in making customers happy [How happy, exactly?] and we need people who are flexible to do whatever they can [“Whatever they can” is a scary job requirement] to meet customer expectations. An average hour in an average day includes picking inventory, packing it, sorting it, and interacting with customers."
Which all reminds me of this: Walk 11 miles a shift and pick up an order every 33 seconds… how Amazon works staff ‘to the bone’
Just FYI if you were wondering, ‘cuz I was.
If you live in a warmer climate and can find a quick growing Broccoli variety, you can harvest well into November."
