    Title is weird. It's a screener/follow-up thing.

    I'm still reading my chapter, but I can say that I will go back and start over and read the entire book. I love the premise.

    True. And they also seem to be competent. Probably works better than anything else Amazon we have to deal with.

    Yeah, I don't know if they outsource, or a specific tech/accounting company does all their Amazon Payments stuff, or what, but they seem to be the most solid part of Amazon, in general.
    Maybe I shouldn't be surprised that Amazon puts more effort into banking and accounting... they do kinda deal with a lot of money.

    Me, too. But we'll see who's grading and whether our idea of humor is in alignment :ROFL:

    Anybody do these 75s? The instructions seem kind of contradictory. 75s suck anyway. They cheated me out of lots of bonuses back when they had the restaurant/hotel dialogs.

    Last year, they had a Mad Libs series of HITs that I did well on, apparently. I think they supposedly chose a group of people whose work was the funniest (in order to get a qual to continue to work on them). I was surprised when my stuff was chosen. I've never thought of myself as a particularly funny person (unless one counts sarcasm :p).

    Sarcasm is one of the best varieties of humor.

    I have the qual for the grading of these?

    they seem easier, I can't imagine making writing them a good hourly but idk what the writing is like.

    You are our qualified judge for judging funny headline edits. We will make available to you 100s of HITs in the next 3 weeks. Just now we launched a small task, There are 20 HITs available, please do not attempt more than 3 HITs. We are still in the deveopment phase and we require HITs to be attempted by a diverse group of judges at this point.
