How how about the Fukushima bottled water company products as well?

No, because bottled water is mind-bogglingly wasteful. I avoid drinking it whether it's radioactive or not!

Also, either the produce is safe, or it isn't. If it's safe, it's irrelevant that it came from Fukushima.

Also, a "linux geek" would have already have taken dm-crypt as an alternative, or performed the instructions in some Full Disk Encryption Howto.

Isn't it built into the installer nowadays? I installed Debian recently and it offered to encrypt my system, but maybe it skipped the partition that holds /bin and whatnot...

Well this is not how Walter White would have done it, is it?

That's the coward's way out, using drugs, where 90% of your synthesis has been done for you by already by some Big Pharma company selling pseudoephedrine to people who need to clear their noses.

"Almost certainly bad" he says, without a shred of evidence... It will not serve you to sum up all the taxi regulations around the world which Uber is falling foul of as being "almost certainly bad for the industry", as that patently isn't true. You are comparing regulations in well-functioning countries with those in fucked-up places, as if they have the same effect in both. You are not doing your argument any favours with that sort of over-simplistic nonsense.

Some people manage by the book, even though they don't know who wrote the book or even what book.
