I am the most wanted man on my island; but I'm not on my island. More's the pity.

And I Thought the Job Market Here Was Bad

(Originally posted on The Wide Awakes)

From The Telegraph (and numerous bloggers):

A 25-year-old waitress who turned down a job providing “sexual services'’ at a brothel in Berlin faces possible cuts to her unemployment benefit under laws introduced this year.

I feel like Chandler in “Friends":


Geez, I don’t even know where to start on this. Congrats, Germany. You’ve certainly earned some sort of lifetime achievement award with this one.

These are the people whose approval we seek on the international stage?

I’ll comment on this later, when I figure out if this means they’ve desceneded to the third or fifth level of Hell.
