In any event, in any device, in any change, some human needs to be responsible for it. When it comes to my car, that someone can't just be me. When it comes to my sister, it can't be her. It's that simple.

True, wrong, wrong.

I would certainly trust myself with working on a car/plane/boat that I have MY ass in/on rather than anybody else. No one in the whole world does have a better reason to take special care than I do in this case and as an "amateur" I can spend the time and have an extra deep look at everything in general or a thing that has raised my suspicion in one way or another.

And I have certainly seen dangerously bad jobs done on cars by those "professionals"...

>How about the awkward feeling that he googles you just after you talked?

>Is that slightly better?

Yes, it is. He/she is going to get a live impression of me first rather than anything else.

>If there's something bad to learn about you, you're out of luck, no matter when you are googled.

If there is something to learn, knowing me in person firsthand might make a big difference on how this is perceived. This does not have to be the sex offender list, but my profession alone might be enough. If I was a physician, perhaps I don't want to hear people's medical problems immediately. I have been in situations where people told me afterwards that they would have treated me differently if they had known immediately that I was a foreigner. Prejudice against other nationalities and all. Once they realized first that I am a fairly normal person everything was fine all the way through.

Is this some sort of 'Hey we can do this even better !' or what exactly could be the point of - besides fighting, err, terrorism of course - spying on everyone at the olympics ? Don't get me wrong, I still wish that there wouldn't this sort of spying on harmless people, but what exactly could be gained from it ?

Put not your trust in money, but put your money in trust.
