You can call me a troll as much as you want, it is just my opinion. I don't say it's better to send pot smokers in prison, it's just that pot smoking is very very often an introduction to other, more harmful drugs. My brother commited suicide because, among other things, of drug abuse. He started smoking pot when he was 12, got introduced to LSD, mescaline and other craps, and ended hanged with an electric extension cord... I don't say pot causes everyone to commit suicide, I just say it's one more thing that makes people go in a possibly very, very wrong way.

That being said, that's totally off-topic.

I think people say they don't like Snowden only because if they say they like him, they fear to end up in a dark prison after being picked up by a group of black Chevy Suburbans...

[...]pot decriminalized[...]

You make it sound like it's a good thing. I hate that stuff, and I personnaly don't think that legalizing a substance that distorts reality, that can make you a veggie and slowly destroys your ability to have fun without it is just a way to make a whole generation less intelligent than the one before.

Yeah, cause everyone knows a broom closet is the most secure place for such an important task as printing the logs of a multimillion dollar lottery... Broom closet is the best, if you require less, there's also under the receptionist's desk, and the middle solution would be in the boss's office. Secure datacenters are only seen in movies, like "Sex Tape".

I thought there was really something we didn't know about, cause hacking something is like doing something cool by twisting the rules in ways most people wouldn't think about. In his case, he lost 30lbs doing nothing more than what a nutritionist and a gym coach told him to do. I personnaly lost 100lbs over 5 years doing all that by myself, cutting the crap and exercising more. I didn't "hack" anything, I went by the rules: less calories input, more calories output.

Hacking would have been like: I changed nothing to my habits but took (whatever pill/electrode/juice/miracle crap) and BAM, I lost 30 pounds in a month. These things don't work, and reading the title and summary, it's like the guy found some crap that actually works at losing weight without efforts with no side effects.

Well, maybe you're right and Cisco want to put a false feeling of "anonymity" to compromise more high profile targets with their preinstalled backdoors. Or maybe it's just a way for Cisco to make more money on the back of its customers. In any way, their method cannot guarantee anything, since the shipment is just the last step of an order, and the order can be compromised at so many earlier steps.
