"If something smells bad you just put sawdust on it..." Bill Mollison you know restore C/N ratio of your compost.



But interessting idea that designing a permiesystem that would work for Jerry, and because of that for everybody!

I thought about it for quite a bit of time and thought it wasn't possible until I came up with something simple.....


Well what about a short, like 25 hour? workweek?!


That might turn the problem into the solution like you wrote in the dailyish email.

I think we now have a variable length, possibly short work week. People no longer get fed despite the level of work they put in. Instead, we have the bounty system. Different people work different amounts and therefore collect different bounties. Jerry would end up getting very hungry.
