Hi Y'all!  I just pulled this off of alt.privacy, and this guy seems to have
a good approach to company drug testing.  Even if you end up peeing for
them like a good boy or girl, this is a way you can make them THINK about
what they're doing, without appearing to be filthy lowlife drug-using scum.

If they're going to turn this once-great country into an armed camp full of
nosy, distrustful pee-sniffers, let's at least make 'em WORK for it!
