Reminds me of a study -- I wish I could remember the name or better reference it. Participants were given goggles that made everything appear upside down. Eventually they got used to it and they began seeing normally with the headgear. When these were then removed, the world appeared upside down.

I remember seeing on the news where a guy who was a victim of a failed breaking system was able to call for help and the police used their cars to actually stop him. If his car scrambled the signal, I hate to think how that would have ended up. Have to wonder what the range would be too, if it could be tweaked and how that could be grossly misused in an urban environment where cell use can actually save lives.

Amen to that -- I don't think it's a modesty issue at all. Plenty of people who don't have problems with nudity feel violated by this because there's no real choice involved. For those that have been abused, this sets off all kinds of alarm bells. No vote, no anything - just this is how it is now, deal with it. For now, I'm just not going to travel if I can help it.
