Work is stressful. Five days a week, you spend spend at least eight hours facing the pressures of your job all while interacting with a group of people you’re forced to see more than your loved ones. Know what would make work less stressful? If we were allowed — nay, encouraged — to mosey into a bathroom stall and rub one out over our lunch breaks. Orgasms give you endorphins. And endorphins make you happy.

Italy has the right idea — but what else could we expect from a country whose former prime minister was famous for throwing “BungaBunga” (use your imagination) parties?

The Independent is reporting that a worker at a Fiat factory in Termini Imerese, Sicily, identified only as Giuseppe Z, was fired in 2010 after his bosses caught him watching porn. Giuseppe argued that he was just “catching a glimpse of a movie during his lunch break”. (A lunch, I feel compelled to add, that was almost certainly elaborate and delicious.)

In 2010, a court agreed with Fiat's decision, but this week his sentence was overturned because, as The Local put it,  “as there was no evidence of the habit seeping into his normal working hours, the Court of Cassation ruled he had done nothing wrong.”
