Surprising nobody.

Investigate the dissenting judge, too.
のほも is such a good word?? the concept is kind of hard to fully get across in translation, but basically it means a feeling of pure, deep, platonic affection, and i think thats beautiful

The ludicrous idea behind proposed dystopias is that it's always unwilling. The perspectives we get are of bastions of sanity, remembering, or urging for with no direct knowledge of, freedoms of the past. No one is going to come take this information.

I let google read everything I do online because between email, storage space and searches they make aggregating the information I want to consume easier. Some day a medical company will have a 3d model of my exact physical form with a map of my genome because it'll mean that without going to the doctor I can be prescribed medication before I even feel symptoms.

And that's only what I know and am willing to give up in barter. I don't use facebook because I don't want someone else to own everything I put up there and use it as they will. But the minute a VR Second Life hits mainstream and becomes a standard of social interaction I'll immediately forget that I've given them the right to post images of my anime catgirl orgies up on billboards for advertisement because that 'risk' is nothing compared to the rewards of... you know, anime catgirl orgies.

Someone, somewhere, owes George Orwell a drink.

During Zuckerberg's testimony on Tuesday, Dick Durbin asked Zuckerberg, "Would you be willing to tell us which hotel you stayed in last night? And everybody you messaged yesterday?"
