Element Fresh Dots And Staff Toilets

May 3rd, 2008

Every time I go to the bathroom it’s occupied. And every time it’s one of the staffers. Now I understand that staffers also need moments of rest and quietness and I wholly endorse that but please give them their own toilets.

Suffering slightly from professional deformation I didn’t start reading the text of the article right away but looked first at the top left corner where the title tag is displayed.

EastSpitjWestNorth, it reads. Is it a typo, was it hacked or something else?
