Just did a survey and yeah, it's using approximations but it is quite eye opening.

Based on my lifestyle I have 36 slaves working for me! And I think I am quite minimal in my consumeristic ways!

I had 60 odd as well. I blame the children.

But I question the accuracy - there's a section on electrical devices which says "Coltan is used and it's eeeevil" etc. This is untrue - there's a UN mandated sanction on coltan that says it can only be imported from countries which sign up to the kinds of working minimums we would expect so I don't think they count. Conversely, my iPhone didn't get mentioned so there's no way the poor workers at Foxtel get counted and I'm pretty sure they should.

Same for diamonds, there's no way to say "Yes I have diamonds but they're from Canada and so not blood diamonds" etc.

Still, quite the eye opener.

I have 58 slaves working for me, but this is not enough. The website suggested that I re-do the survey at a later stage, presumably to see if I can boost the number of people working for me.

Is it possible to purchase extra slaves?

The drag things to the house things seems broken. wont add more rooms or cars. If they cant get that right then what hope
does the rest have?

56 anyway. was expecting fewer as I dont have many clothes - the defaults were insanely high

dragging to house worked fine for me in IE9....

and i blame the children too! in fact, i dont have 65 slaves working for me, they are actually working *with* me - i'm the 66th slave, owned by my kids :|

Hmm 34. I'm sure it would be higher if it let me add more cars to the house.... Will only allow 2!
I currently have 4....

I got 32, but I do wonder about the global average thing at the end telling me that others only have 25 slaves and I need to reduce down to that level. How many people with no possessions and who only eat lentils have taken that test?
