I don't know about how well farmers do with compliance, but OSHA does require that bathroom facilities be available for all employees whenever they need to go.

And WHERE are these Port-O-Lets placed in relation to the pickers? When you make your money on how much you pick, how many times do you think you'll trudge 1/4 mile or 1/2 mile to take a pee?

So cross contamination would be very easy to pick up that way, I seem to remember that there was a huge outbreak of e.coli in europe regarding brussel sprouts a few years back linked to exactly that.

This is a great point.

Where does produce come from? The fields. And here in America (and indeed much of our fresh produce comes from Mexico), have you seen rows of Honey Buckets in the fields? Not too many? A few? Where do you think farm workers pee (and take a dump) in the middle of a hot long California day?

Yes, that's right, in the field.

Wash your veggies.

Comment I tell you now, Ecuador, be very afraid! (Score -1, Troll) 85

No. Kevin Mitnick is well know for his "weakness" for teen boys. This makes him a security risk to any public agency he associates with. Mitnick was a well-known "daddy" in prison, where he "tutored" younger fellow incarerates. Basically, he shared some of his "skript kiddy" knowledge to tome of the younger inmates for sexual favors. Many of these "students" would get out and start harvesting Credit Card Numbers.

Make no mistake, Mitnick is a predator. Several of his aliases can be found in the comments and forums at

I suspect he used his "social engineering" skills to develop a dossier on some high ranking Ecuadorians to "persuade" them to hire him.

But clearly, his main interest in Ecuador is smooth young boys down on their luck who are - as some like to say - "young, dumb, and full of cum".

It is well known in certain circles that Mitnick actually collects cum-stained "bunn huggers" that he has his rent boys wear while he masturbates their firm hard circumcised penises to climax. He then places the garments in plastic zip-locks and has them FedExed overnight to his storage facility / sex lair.

Mitnick is known to be a fan of Pulp Fiction, and reliable sources confirm that he has a rented store-front in Los Angles where he has recreated the pawn shop with a sex dungeon in the basement.

It is at this Los Angles location that Mitnick keeps a private display of a selection of his most favorite cum stained "bunn huggers".

I tell you now, Ecuador, be very afraid!

Mitnick problem is that he's a Homosexual. His interest in Ecuador is smooth skinned Ecuadorian rent boys with a cheap price tag. He'll most likely boff his way through the back rooms of a few gay nightclubs grab the money and slip out of the country before the Ecuadorians realize they have been "had". Literally.


Submission + - Facebook paid no taxes despite record profits ( 2

Frosty Piss writes: Despite earning more than $1 billion in profits last year, social media juggernaut Facebook paid zilch when it came to federal and state taxes in 2012. In fact, the website will actually be getting a refund totaling $429 million thanks to a tax reduction for executive stock options. In the coming years, Facebook will continue to get monster tax breaks, totaling about $3 billion. 'The employees cash in stock options, and at that point there is tax deduction for the company,' Robert McIntyre, of watchdog group Citizens for Tax Justice, said. 'Because even though it doesn't cost Facebook a nickel, the government treats it as wages and they get a deduction for it. And usually it doesn't wipe out companies whole tax bill, although many companies get big breaks from it.'

You do realize that BBC won the court case because it argued that "top gear reviews are not actual reviews but scripted comedy skits" successfully?

The New York Times is not generally considered a "comedy" publication, grouped into the same category as The Onion.

Though I guess that could change.

Anyone who doesn't like electric cars clearly wants to destroy the planet. Broder probably goes to church too, and to Tea-party rallies, when he isn't shooting assault rifles. No wonder /.'ers hate him.

You are an idiot. Unfortunately, there is no law against it.

It is to be expected from someone who parrots Tea Party nonsense rather than exercising some original thought.
