Provided that you don't give them a reason to pull you over, you'll never have a problem with a cloned license plate. Bonus points if you make sure to use a plate that belongs specifically to the exact same colour/make/model of your car, and you can generally get away with just a ticket if you do get pulled for a moving violation.
Hacking/skimming RFID passports has be demonstrated, and will only get easier. The same rules apply, as long as you don't arrouse suspicion it is often bussiness as usual.

Lets take a little look at the statistics for criminal justice system.
The 1997 BSJ figures put the number of American's in prison/jail and on parole/probation at a total of 5,692,500.
Of Those 5,692,500 inmates, African American's numbered 2,149,900 or 37.8%. The 2000 census (closest used for comparible numbers) lists total number of African American descent population the US at 36,419,434 or 12.9% of the total population.
The stats say that African Americans are 3 times more likely to be convicted of crimes than they statistically should be.
Statistically, by your standards of proof, I can argue that African Americans are more likely to be convictable criminals, and by encorporating your facts, conclude they most likely have a brain disorder.
So my point is to ask, what do we do with them? Do we just lock them up becuase they are statistically pre-disposed to crime? Or do we perhaps look at some other correlating factors? Like poverty, substance abuse, education levels, income etc? Perhaps we should leave the idea, that expressed genetics controls our lives at concious level, back in the 1900s with the rest of eugenics movement.
"Our review indicates that there is currently no evidence to support the selection of organically over conventionally produced foods on the basis of nutritional superiority."
I think thats more of an apt summary which doesn't imply a bias based on data which lies outside the scope of thier research.
They were comparing values of vitamins in one to the other, let those facts stand on thier own. There is no nutritional value in sustainability, pesticide use or ecologically sound farming practices nor should any imply as such.
