The other number that's interesting in the chart is the "Quit looking for a job" number. Those seem to be more like folks that would not work and live the best they can on BI, about 1%. But even they might find productive activities that don't fit into the current definition of "work."

+Jon Munger You made me grin. And alas, on the internet, everything is new for the person who hadn't heard it before, so there can be no difference between doing something this morning and doing it decades ago.

I'm also surprised by the way things get "telephoned" on the internet. Sometimes what actually happened bears little resemblance to the accusation.

+Will Shetterly You're not wrong, but Egan seems to take it a bit too far. I've read almost everything he's written and this seems to be a consistent theme.
