There was also Starship Troopers 2, Starship Troopers 3, and Starship Troopers: Invasion. Of those, I only watched Invasion (all CGI). It was OK, which made it way better than the 1997 one. The others frankly look even worse. Anyway, I have high hopes and low expectations with Uprising.

Yeah, I don't like warrantless wiretapping and such more than anyone else here, but how are they supposed to serve a warrant when they want to collect DNA? The police find some DNA, then magically figure out who's it is, serve them a warrant, then collect it after it's decomposed/lost/compromised? I realize sometimes you know who the donor was, but you can't make the police serve a warrant before all DNA is collected.

The one and ONLY value of a cryptocurrency is that it can be reliably traded secretly. There is simply NO other reason to use one.

Cyrptocurrencies also ensure there are no forgeries. If a bill is printed with the hash on it, it can be verified easily. This is actually an excellent use of the cryptocurrency standards. Having the govt, as well as citizens and businesses, being able to track it publicly would be a benefit. Also, you're a moron.
