@Liz the Lemur "The rooms have shag carpeting. Everything in the cabin is dark-colored" Agreed. BURN IT. Make it look like an accident. Use insurance money to pay back your poor visitors! Dear god.

On Which Extinct Job Would You Be Best At?

@Allison Oh I am with you 100% because that would also come with extinct perks! My aunt always had an in with the airlines and knew when to get tickets for herself at the cheapest rate. My mother worked for PamAm in the hey-day booking group flights and - using company offers, employee benefits, etc - would fly first class to Nepal, Brazil, Hong Kong, for next to nothing. I'm glad she lived it up, but, damn. What I would give!

On Concerning Public Assistance, Shame, and Healthy Eating

This is still the same company whose co-founder and co-CEO John Mackey said, on the record, that the ACA is fascist so I'm not terrifically surprised that (at least some) stores don't take WIC/EBT but I am disappointed. Organic food shouldn't need to be sacrificed at all, it should be a given, but it seems like it's become as much a status symbol as handbags were, and maybe that's due to the rise of Whole Foods.
