Scary Technology
I read this book once called "The Baghdad Blogger"... I thought it was gonna be some Jack the Ripper thing... turned out to be some guy who liked Portishead. The sort of guy you'd go for a pint with, but would prefer not to read a bloody book about.

Let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, its number is 5,878,155.

A while ago, some pranksters decided to set up a web site that's sole purpose was to the scare the hell out of certain people who spend all of their time awaiting the arrival of the anti-Christ. Their web site proclaimed how they had developed a product that could be implanted under a person's skin, that would enable them and their financial institution to be able to conduct cashless financial transactions.

Eventually, the merry hoaxters 'fessed up, and exposed their prank, and everything was hunky dory... or was it?

Most Pigdog readers are familiar with the US Patent Office, a department of the government not noted for its outrageous sense of humor. On March 2, 1999, Thomas W. Heeter was awarded a patent for his invention that would be "a method presented for facilitating sales transactions by electronic media. A bar code or a design is tattooed on an individual. Before the sales transaction can be consummated, the tattoo is scanned with a scanner."

Regardless of your theological beliefs (or lack thereof), this is some scary shit. One has to wonder who is using this... or getting ready to.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
