Right now they merely watch; they don't throw you into Re-education Camp.
Here's my general assessment of the pace of progress we've actually made compared to what was predicted since around the Sputnik era:
Earth transportation: D- (relatively cheap air-fare about only gain. NO flying cars.)
Space transportation/exploration: C- (chem rockets still expensive as hell)
Artificial Intelligence: B-
Electronics/Computers: A (arguably only area faster than expected)
Poverty: D (still not solved)
Reduced Work Week: D+
Population Overload or Resource Shortages: C- (problems less than anticipated)
Big Brother: B
We wouldn't have this problem if we filed our taxes online. Turbotax has prevented that, because they want to charge us for doing what the government could do free...
After the healthcare.gov debacle, I don't think many are ready to support that idea. Make sure that puppy is well-tested BEFORE launch this time.

I was once was asked a similar kind of question about a library, and told them "I tend not to index them that way in my head. How about asking me what class or function I'd use to perform a particular task? That's how my head stores things."

There's the solution: Pose as a $1500/mo. Indian PhD. Practice the accent.

And then... Boo!
The conspiracy pretty much ended when Buzz Aldrin punched Bart Sibrel in the face on camera.
Buzz: "I was merely demonstrating the formation of craters that match our surface photos."
Being one of the most well-known astronauts, Buzz should probably not be out in public without a bodyguard. Let the bodyguard bop the guy; less court risk and paper-work for Buzz.

Indeed. They could have created a whole product line around it, like The Sims, Hoaxing Edition.
