This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

god damn


That’s how easy it is to make minimum wage?!

So I picked up a Lodge Porcelain Enamel Cast Iron Dutch Oven (from here on out to be known as the Red Dutch Oven) today.  I originally set out to buy the standard Lodge Cast Iron Dutch Oven but the store was sold out.  I’ve always wanted a Le Creuset dutch oven, but at $350 I haven’t been able to justify it to Lisa.  Needless to say its first recipe is bolognese sauce.
