    is cheaper.

    For slaves you have to buy dog food every day, maintain shelters, there's shackles, guards, periodic veterinary care.

    Even using Mal*Wart you can't make a domestic slave competitive with a $1 a day barefoot Pakistani kid.

      for taking this into disgusting detail. I'm not up to that tonight.

      All I was going to do was say how I had a heart attack at the news. There's nothing like a shot of realism to douse yourself with, though.

      The 'slave budget' has actually been worked by a number of our ancestors, and hopefully only a few of our contemporaries. Makes me wish I was an otter.
