    Seems a blowtorch is also fine.

    I still don't understand why people are so scared of these "invasions of their privacy". If you don't have anything to hide, after all... :3

    Its not about hiding. Its about personal space. Imagine what it would be like if at any time someone could just run up to you and without blinking, just stick their eyeball up your nose. You'd slap the hell out of them and say "Get the fuck away from me!" - Not "Oh you want to inspect my nostrils? Sure here have this magnifying glass and flashlight!".


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I believe what Steal was trying to say was that it's no better than when someone takes your mail, reads it out loud, and makes copies of it to keep. Except your mailbox was crossing the border at the time.

    I would just go to Chinatown and buy a couple of m80's.

    How come all your solutions are so violent?

    I would have peaceful protests and sit-ins about this problem.

    ???

    I was talking about blowing up my laptop. That might make a little hard to go through my hard drive then.

    But like... that's a stalker. If it's happening to everyone, and it's the government, and they're only interested if you're doing something wrong rather than the events of your day-to-day life...

    That's just the problem though: Governments are made up of people. Without that "badge" it would just be another person who's inspecting your private possessions.

    This may sound, disturbingly contradictory, and I'm sure at least one of the more critical people here will call me on it, but I do support some level of "Big Brother." I just can't stand the idea of it reaching that far into your life. If this wasn't just about the borders, but rather state lines, then it would be well beyond a warning sign for totalitarianism.
