Ridley Scott should never have tried to imply that Deckard was a replicant. It's a terrible choice for the movie and it's clearly not in line with the book. The story is about the dehumanization of Deckard while simultaniously humanizing the replicants. Deckard being a replicant just doesn't make sense in that context and ruins the entire point.

My concern is this-
The NSA decrypts all messages to see if they need to read those messages. Those decrypted messages go into a database which, like the cellphone metadata database, is opened to other agencies (the police) to browse. Pretty soon the only messages the police will need a wiretap to gather are those which are easiest to collect.

If you didn't have to work so hard, you'd have more time to be depressed.
