Sonic technology is much more capable than laser technology.
On behalf of the People's Correctional Facility of North Korea, we are most sorry to report your son, while playing a banned D&D game, failed his dexterity roll against a spellcast as well as a critical hit save, the monster involved was level 20, and the spell involved resulted in a permanent Invisibility curse. We lack the ability to detect your son, however we do believe he is alive and well, somewhere on this planet. We are returning his personal affects as some comfort, however we think his shoes are cursed, and recommend you not let anyone wear them.

Prisons are big business, and just like everything else, they are run by big business.
This sentence is absolutely heartless and undeniably true at the same time. How do we change it?
Do these elements show socialization skills? Cooperative ability? Evaluation of morals? Imagine if the prison ruled that all players must be Lawful Good. All these scenarios acted out in imagination helps decision-making, provided there's a good GM in charge of player role accuracy. I actually think role-playing games could be very useful. Role-playing is quite useful in psychological counseling, is it not?
If I were imprisoned, I'd consider it a significant investment in an opportunity to work hard on improving myself, so as to no longer be a detriment to society. I would certainly not expect to be permitted to write Mein Kempf, or plot my next Una-Bomber attacks, much less communicate with folks on the outside to plot the next tragic act in my Jihad against the Great Satan.
Prison should be about rehabilitation, not detention. In there, it is a battle for hearts and minds on an individual level, and the treasure of redemption. I say someone takes the fight into the dungeons, and helps slay the dragons on the inside of every man's heart.
The official hospital report recorded: "injuries sustained while attempting to read someone else's regular expressions."
These days, I spend most of my time convincing people that ODSM is not an add-on level to Halo, trying to convince people that entitlements are not hand-outs of money but important technological elements of information security, and building virtual machine demo images at about the pace of a boy with a new set of Legos on Christmas Day. Coding is just another tool for my job.
I do have a co-worker who is a woman, and she tells me plenty of stories in line with this. She's got I think a Master's in Computer Science, and the customer will just talk like she doesn't know anything, or she's not even in the room, which is impressively rude, given the fact that she is frequently the tallest person in the room.
