No, I am not kidding, so no, not right. I'm fairly obvious when I'm kidding.
Have a look into the work environments in Amazon warehouses some time.
Of course, Amazon is working on replacing most of those workers with robots from Kiva Systems (a company which, like many others, has been assimilated into the Amazon Borg), so perhaps it doesn't matter: those people will be out of work soon.
In addition, Amazon puts local bookstores out of business. Which sucks. And there are plenty of other reasons for me to hate them. They're the online version of Wal-Mart, as far as I'm concerned.
None of that is kidding. Kthxbai.
