Flashcube!



I remember when Flashcube and I protested the war at the Pentagon, dropped acid with Timothy Leary, and saw the Grateful Dead at Fillmore West. What an integral part of that decade he was!

Camp Bow Wow

If you want to work as a "counselor" at Camp Bow Wow, dog-sitting service, you're first going to have to sign an "employee confidentiality and non-compete agreement." According to this document, if you ever leave the company, you're forbidden from working at any other pet-sitting service within a 25-mile radius of any Camp Bow Wow for two years. The company explains that it needs to "prevent unauthorized disclosure of our trade secrets." Camp Bow Wow counselors mostly make just above minimum wage. Their chief responsibilities are picking up dog poop and other cleaning duties. [Huff Post]
