    Not sure whether I should buy this. After reading the first seven issues, I am now obsessed with formulating a plan to end my (shamefully overpaid, easy, benefit-laden) employment situation by the end of this year. Out of sheer laziness, really, and the desire to sit around in my underwear all day contemplating the merits of personal hygiene.

    What’s worse, the back issues that I bought for my brother-in-law (The German) have caused him to become “radicalized” (in the words of his wife). He quit his job in health care, has enrolled in a “wild game butchery” course, and is going to become a hunter…not a word of a lie.

    Damn you, New Escapologist! You’re tearing to shreds the fabric of modern society!

  2. Haha. One hell of an endorsement. Thanks Drew. Glad it’s inspiring you.
