Is it possible to work somewhere with humans being human, and still make a decent living? Or do i have to put up with corporate sociopaths till my pension at 67 years old (if i make it to that age at all)??

I've heard that non-profits attract human beings in the workplace, but the wages are strictly survival-level.

They have a Better Business Bureau seal on their site, and they do come up as accredited with an A-. Looks like most of the complaints are delivery/product, and if customs seizes your order because it's prohibited where you live, they won't refund it.

^thanks! so it looks like they're a real company then! now if only i could make sure the products they send are real and not chinese cheap crap.. they have some supplements for cheap that cost a fortune here. same brands, 26 euros for a jar of vitamin c here for 11,50 dollars.

so that's 11.5*2+ shipping fee 12 = 35 makes 27,36 euros for two jars=6%tax = 29,68 euros for two jars. or 38,50 for 3.

Now Foods is cheap crap, but some of the other brands they have should be okay. You might look at the individual brands and make sure they are U.S. Pharmacopeia certified.

And more than 1 gram of C per day is very likely to cause intestinal distress, so don't go crazy.

^to answer my own question: it's machine washable on the gentle cycle, but it still smelled like ass. I doused it in perfume on the inside and let it sit in a plastic bag for a week. Then the smell was gone.

I think Perla posted a link to a site where you typed in a bunch of text and based on it the site created a sort of word cloud from the most common words. I don't exactly know the right English word.

Anyway, my late computer took the reference to that site to the grave, so if anybody has it - or anything similar of that sort - I would be very happy if you could let me know about it.

i have some advice:

if you're one of those people that needs to get regular intraocular pressure checks, and every time they do it, the test fails because you fly through the wall backwards because the puff of air startles you, ask for a few drops of lidocaine in your eyes. works like a charm.

thank you, new eye doctor!

and please note: it will also sedate the inside of your nose and your palate, which feels quite weird.
