Last entry for tonight folks. Just a heads up - my deadline tomorrow is still the same, but the results post probably won't be till later in the evening due to unavoidable schedule stuff...(sorry).
zdemian has dug into the TransRepo Industries company archives to find out the real reason why all employees receiving pink slips are tasered and abandoned on the side of a country road - without even having the chance to clean out their desks.

MaLAgua presents a brief piece regarding clinical drug trials. Maybe TransRepo Industries doesn't pay their interns enough to make sure they hand out the correct samples to the correct people. Or maybe they just don't care - since the results probably make for great home viewing.
