If I had only two bullets and was locked in a room with Comcast, Hitler, and Osama Bin Laden... I'd shoot Comcast twice.

Well, yeah, because the other two are already dead.

Geez.....its the level of evil, not that they are alive.....

If I only had two bullets and was locked in a room with Comcast, Dick Cheney, and Kim Jong Un, I'd shoot Comcast twice....

Better or blurry?

I work at an property and casualty insurance company out on a rock. Our president has lunches once a month and all the employees rotate through, he answers questions, people mingle, etc.

I went as a fill in this month and one of the questions is whether our firm would issue digital ID cards on smartphones, and he said we were looking into it...

I was shaking my head slightly and he looked at me and asked with a smile, "So what is the IT guy's opinion?"

I smiled and replied, "Cool tech, but personally, I would never hand my phone to a member of law enforcement without a warrant."

He replied, "I can see your point."

So sure, while I can agree that having some sort of digital something that keeps secure digital records that are public record anyway to provide to law enforcement upon request, AND a smartphone, is certainly better than a wallet full of paper and plastic cards AND a smartphone.

But ONLY a smartphone, or any single device, with my personal and what likes to be considered private data as well, I don't think so....

Grew corn all summer and it "inhaled" carbon dioxide...

then we sequestered the dead stalks instead of letting them rot on the ground and "exhale" carbon dioxide....

wouldn't that start reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere?

and if we sequestered it deep underground under enormous pressure for long periods of time, we'd create new oil...

Our policy is, when in doubt, do the right thing. -- Roy L. Ash, ex-president, Litton Industries
