However, PGP/GPG keys can be trusted and independently verified. They are as secure as we can get for now. Why not replace the broken SSL CA system with GPG/PGP encryption keys? Make the NSA-infiltrated stuff obsolete, and rely on a real-world web of trust?"

Quick! Jettison the house!
Thank you. My faith in humanity is restored.
Actually, DOS is a variant of CP/M. Gary Kildall at Digital Research wouldn't take the meeting with IBM to provide an OS for their new personal computer idea so they ended up going back to Gates' and Allen's then fledgling MicroSoft to get the job done.The rest is the history of the many levels of Hell.
Seriously. If you're point is to get the picture to ask some geek hag to marry you because you've grown beyond virtual girl and want a real one then hire the stinking sky writing pilot to spell out "@SkankyGurl, will you marry me?" - so the whole bay area can see it, take a picture of it and post it to the internets.
How about making it a crime to have a robocall from a politician that has spoofed caller ID?
I'm pretty sure when I was getting phone calls for the 000-000-0000 was not a valid phone number.... and was simply used to block anon call blocking.
Heck, I'd even do it if I had to drive to a local spot and pick them up. Why? Because I'm sick and tired of having to goto one local store (Wegmans) with their idea of sale prices - 2 for $5....
Let me order or queue what I need during the week and I'll decide when to go get it. No lists, no coupons.
"Who deserves more credit?"
Why does everything have to be a competition? Can't we accept that both groups have done a great job?
I bet you're one of those nimrods that doesn't keep score at a little league game.
Imperial measures, on the other hand, are totally psychotic. 12 inches to a foot, 3 feet to a yard, 5,280 feet to a mile. It is the type of nonsense that we would expect to see in Dr. Seuss story, not it real life.
Of course, hardly anyone ever converts from feet to miles or vice versa once they get out of school. It's 40 miles to my mother-in-law's house. Why would I possibly care that it's also 201200 feet?
It should also be noted that dividing or multiplying by three isn't really hard even for exceptionally stupid people, so feet-yard conversions are no big deal.
I've seen measurements of the distance to your mother-in-law's house and it's actually slightly over 40 miles at 201327 feet. I understand that distinction to be a sticking point between you and the CrimsonCountess because you see the extra 127 feet as beneficial whereas she sees it as just more annoying distance to keep her from here beloved Mum.
