Weekend Reading

I was a Warehouse Wage Slave from Mother Jones. Wow. This is eye-opening.

Study Shows What Men really Think of Women in Red Dresses from the Huffington Post. I guess this is interesting except that I’m not sure why we care what men think of our dress colors.

How Climate Change Causes Earthquakes and Erupting Volcanos from Mother Jones. Scared the socks off me.

The Death Star is a Surprisingly Cost-Effective Weapons System from Mother Jones. Made me laugh.

One-Armed Gunslingers and Germans in Teepees: A Brief Guide to the Euro-Western from The Millions. I loved this because I knew absolutely nothing about it before reading it.

Who Invented the High Five? from ESPN The Magazine. Probably my favorite this week.

Why Breasts are the Key to the Future of Regenerative Medicine from Wired.
What’s the latest thing you read that surprised/engaged/educated you?

    That is the best thing I’ve heard all day!

  2. OMG! I may just be a total geek but I LOVE magazines! I’m so glad JMF decided to pursue this venue because it is TOTALLY up my alley. I currently intern for one, worked for another, and assisted with the student publication of a magazine. I LOVE them! YAY!

    I live in earthquake country and drought country. I’m within sight of the beach, which, by the way, is uphill from our below-sea-level house, which sits on a special stressed slab meant to help those of us living on earth with a high liquifaction risk to avoid sinking beneath the quicksand, house and all.

    I do not want to read what climate change might do. I am going to hide under my bed, now.

  4. The warehouse wage slave story has stayed with me. I’m concerned about the problem, and unsure how to put that concern into action. Are conditions better with retailers who do charge shipping? On Amazon I have the option of choosing “super saver” shipping for free and slower delivery, or paying for quicker delivery. My guess is that both options come from the same warehouse.

    Is it time for retailers to advertise that they offer decent working conditions to give concerned buyers the option to shop with them?
