Understand my words with full knowledge and reverence for my connection to the void.

My data is not yours to own.

You came here and asked to sell us things, then tracked us with the things you sold us.

You came here and begged for trust, which many gave you, then betrayed it by selling our secrets.

Then you took away our nation.

My data is not yours to own.

You walk into starbucks, you find a macbook air user, you walk over to his table, and SLAM this down on it, and get to work


I just want to tell someone who will understand, I am maintaining restraint.

FYI, my estimated *upper limits* on how long they'd last were roughly:

6 AA: 4 hours
9 V: 2 hours
1 typical car battery: five days
1 huge Leisure RV battery: nine days

again: all of this is back-of-envelope. so not educated guesses, but probably within an order of magnitude at best.

I may actually test these someday. it'd be a pain, but a useful pain is worth it sometimes, right? :)

(except that last one. if I get an RV battery to actually test this, well, my wife'll kill me, I think)

@thegibson @deadsuperhero I fall into that Oregon Trail mini-generation.

I get to scoff at EVERYBODY.

And possibly give them dysentery.

This god damn 3 hour commute has rum at the end of it.

This I know.
