Is the reverse is true? Would it take more than 3,500 extra calories to equal a pound gained?
A federal jury has concluded that an Atlanta grocery warehousing firm must pay two employees a combined $2.2 million for forcing them to submit to a buccal cheek swab to determine if their DNA was a match to feces being left throughout the facility.
This is an update to the Mystery Pooper story. I’m glad to see that there are laws against this sort of thing.
I’m skeptical that the payout will be what is listed. Being awarded and actually receiving can be different things, and that’s besides if the firm challenges the amount awarded.
Who was the “devious defecator” leaving their “offending fecal matter” across an Atlanta-area warehouse that stored and delivered products for grocery stores?
As funny and weirdly odd as the news is that lead to this, it’s not laughing matter about the intrusion performed on this two people. The ability to do DNA testing opens the doors to incredibly invasive knowledge – predisposition to disease and cancer, etc. I highly recommend watching Gattaca if you haven’t seen it already.
If, on the way to your desk, you pass that one person in the office who absolutely won’t go home, even though their face is exploding with mucus, don’t count on a day off. Just looking at sick people can kick your immune system into gear.
