16-ish. I had to guess at the "tops" category cuz I wasn't gonna go count all my T-shirts and hoodies. I took "outerwear" to include raincoats and I have one of those. I tried to click on the razor but it included the aftershave with it and I do not use that. I included stereophile although I don't really have a stereo, but just iTunes, an iPod and headphones and earbuds. The foods category didn't include some of the stuff I eat and I clicked on chili peppers once even though I grow my own. But it was still an interesting and different survey.

It said 39, mostly based on the number of clothes and shoes. But it was apparently assuming that most of my clothes were running shoes and nylon stockings (I guess FordGuy's in trouble!), of which I have only two pairs of each. So I'm not convinced that it was particularly accurate.

What's the point? It asks you your zipcode and cannot find the location no matter what you put in.

It didn't give me the option for nylons / stockings! So I guess I need to add ten-ish.

It didn't ask me about them, but on the results page it included them as one of the big blocks of items that use lots of slave labor. I only had five blocks, and one was running shoes and one was nylons. I can't imagine that 2/5 of my slaves are working just on those things!

On the website, they said 23 was the average for people who took the test.

Well if it takes a few extra slaves to look and feel good, I say it's worth it! They're cheap to own!

I didn't see that. That's really interesting though.

Very clunky website. Very slow and my final results would not load.

I took the survey, but it made loads of insane assumptions about how many clothes I had. Thirty dresses? Twenty pairs of leather shoes? Ninety tops? Seriously?? I didn't realise until I got to the end, and then it didn;t seem to remember everything I entered. So I gave up.

Exactly. They expect you to go digging in your closet, etc. to count exactly how many "tops" you have? Nah.

There are also a lot of variables left out. What if you only buy pre-owned pants and tops? What if you hand-make some of your stuff? Grow your own vegetables?

Yeah, I grow my own chili peppers so shouldn't have clicked on that one. I have a bunch of things that were pre-owned too.

I don't have a zip code, so I did what I usually do in such circumstances and used 98281, which is the closest geographic location with a zip code. The site wasn't able to locate that, so I used zip codes for Blaine Washington, Seattle, Portland Oregon, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York... it wasn't able to locate any of them.

So I gave up.

I can only assume that I have no slaves working for me.
