The correct solution(1):

Recover costs from wars in the middle east this millennium from taxes added to gas consumption, domestic or foreign, until repaid.

This would be a ~80 per gallon if spread over 10 years.

This is assuming we fought the war "for oil", whatever the hell that means.

The correct hard ball approach is: I am recording this call and forwarding to my local cable franchise authority.

This is the entity that your local franchise must go through to offer service in your area and they are the ones that set rules like the number of seconds you may be placed on hold until you get a human without them having to pay a fine.

But just imagine a current attack vector today:
  * Remotely infecting a personal computer -- Demonstrated, publicly available
  * Tethered infection of PC to mobile phone -- Demonstrated, publicly available
  * Bluetooth infection of common SOCs on pacemakers -- Not published
  * Pacemaker delivery of ill effects to user -- Demonstrated, details not public

As more consumer-friendly devices are produced that have a close connection to humans and are marketable, the number of attack vectors increases.

After joining Mensa, you get invited to plenty of card games, speeches and nerd discussions. But you're still dealing with the general public.

Now, if there was a second test... where then only let in people that care about their appearance, maintain good eye contact, have a modicum of physical fitness, then I would definitely like to join that inner circle.
