Books Are Better Than Money, You Dummy

Most people at Fusion are underpaid, and when they ask for a raise, they get shot down. But thankfully there’s an alternative for us–checking out books from the library.

A study by Britain’s “Department for Culture, Media & Sport” (yes, singular) says that going to the library gives people the same satisfaction as getting a $2200 raise.

The supreme irony is that if we got a raise, we wouldn’t need to rent books–we could buy them instead. Or better yet, we could buy the DVD versions of those books, because they have Jude Law in them.

Anyway, the study said we also get the same sort of good feeling from dancing, swimming, and spending hours on useless studies orchestrated by the government to dissuade workers from asking for more money.

Can we have more money now?
