I'm pretty frugal and I have 20 slaves working for me, mostly making me underwear and body wash.
34 if you count the houseboy who sleeps in my airing cupboard which they didn't ask me about.
34 was my number, might have knicked that houseboy of yours
40 Slaves Working For You.
It asked for my age so I'm not sure if that featured as an aspect or not.
Also the food one was a bit hard to answer. I went in and added '2' to coffee but I don't really have a scale to measure this to. Odd that tea isn't enslaving, it seems.
I probably way over-estimated on the clothes one. I realise now it was only about cotton and none of my suits are cotton and only one coat is cotton.
I assume as well it must mean 40 slaves over the course of your life, so 40/36 ain't that bad. Some of my clothes and electronics have been with me years.

for you and Darcy?
I forget the name.
Mostly in China by the looks of it.
work harder, slaves in the internet pipes

You should question your work's IT policy on that one when we're already up to IE9.
it's incredible we even are on 7.0 - fuckers still use 6.0 over in Shell, as far as I am aware.
How many slaves does it take to make a decent flash application?
I can only imagine that my meat and shoe consumption has sent its algorithims into orbit, as I appear to have *blank screen* slaves working for me. After all of that palaver, i feel robbed. I shall recover as soon as my PA brings me my Long Black.
A café sans lait.
(shout out to meths for showing me how to do é last week).
*is instantly homesick*
My tip is to cut down on your clothes
what do I win!!
Bullshit. How come their scale is 1-5 but if the Flash application fucks up, you can put in 7? Piece of shit. Get some better slaves, then I won't need as many.
i think barely owning any electronics helps me
Children in China love me <3
couldn't understand how the food bit worked. What was the slider? What did the pictures represent? Stupid Flash, just do a survey.
There's a blue thing on the left that you click to open a select things.
Come on! You use a Mac now: you should be used to this sort of graphical design over bald logic sort of concept. /JOKEZZ GUYZ
like, which bit of the circle when I scrolled was showing the percentage? Did all my percentages have to add up to 100? What was the picture of a windmill supposed to show? Stupid illogical surveys.
If you scroll one the others adjust down evenly to take to 100%
but I couldn't figure out if I was supposed to be factoring in the family or not, and so I kept switching back and forth. The food part was particularly vague.
Still, interesting to know that body wash is so dependent on slavery.
I don't trust the source
I don't even have any clothes, or eat any meat, or use any iThings
most laborious wawste of time all day.
but rather pointless for some/many of us, because we dont want the world to be like this anyway, but we are compelled to live like this...it would be more useful to find a better source for the culprits than ourselves....I hate the way that some ar***ol** feel like they can tell you stuff like this and many of the public just lap it up like they are the livestock that the state treats us as.
"protest against this company, protest against that company" till the only companies that will get your support are those that Hide their exploitation activities much better than the others.....it is the competative market and its mechanisms that has made slaves of everyone.........do not buy into the idea that it is partly your fault for existing in a developed country, because this engenders more of an acceptance of those within out society, that actually positively DO try to exploit the differences in the world....I and you guys should accept that we are NOT the same as some other people in the developed world.
because i have so many clothes, its saying i have 40 slaves. yet about 60% of my clothes are second hand and I try not to buy clothes from slave shops.
intending that one day they will darn all the knees on loads of trousers
It's saying if they're cotton then you're unlikely to find the cotton was farmed as ethically as you'd like. I don't think it makes assumptions about manufacture.
or from clothes swaps.
Well that was my point about time periods up there. It doesn't take any account of how old the clothes are. If it's old enough it could have been made in even worse times. Granny's jewellery was probably mined by more slaves than recent stuff...
I have a fair amount of clothes, but other than pants, tights, and bras, it's all from the charity shop.
was that little plate in the top left meant to have done something?
there was one that was just a sliding rule running between a bear and a bird. I don't have a bear slave, though I guess that would be pretty awesome.
They're almost all from China
I like CD's
Wheres my tea slave? I want a tea.
website design too poxy to waste time on.
its assumptions of normal consumption can only work for Americans.
Anyway my score is 9
