    Or, QUig, It could be some people pissed off about being spied on by the .gov
    I've always said this: Just because I don't want anyone to know what I'm doing, doesn't mean I have something to hide.

    Hell, could even just be someone with a company or some such that would buy them for all the employees or members of the group the phones.

    Except it is none of their business. If I want to stockpile gasoline, does that mean I am ipso facto going to make Molotov cocktails? :evil: I should NOT have to explain to some pseudo cop that I want to have enough to run my snow blower this winter. Grrr --

    Sorry Quig, I read threads about this on 5 boards the last few days and didn't click your link...
    I call BS on the middle eastern people aspect of the article though... I'm sure middle eastern terrorists have much better ways of comms than Wal-mart phones... kinda sounds like what Klinton used to say about the 'gun show loophole' as if Gun shows in the US were some sort of World Arms Bazaar....

    I don't buy it. I think that 1000s of guys like me went out to try and protect their privacy

    Yeah probably so,
    Yeah ghirt I agree with you.
    I guess I never thought about using them for a remote bomb detonator.

    Garage door openers/recievers also make excellent remote detenators....as do remotes for radio controled toys ( cars, airplanes, etc )....and far easier to adapt than cell phone....you push the button, the contacts on the reciever portion close....boom. Not the distance you can get out of a cell phone, but far cheaper and easier to adapt.

    Plus, what's to keep anyone from using ANY cellphone for such a purpose ??

    The bomb thing is just scare tactics......."oooooooohhhh, we've got to confiscate those evil fingernail clippers before you get on a plane because 'terrorists' might use them to take over a plane".....ahahahaaaaaaaaaa.....what horsehockey......I'd bet you could get on a plane with a ceramic knife the size of a claymore.

    What fries my pie is the same Govtweenies that give carte blanche to these same "middle eastern types" to enter the country and roam around without any restrictions will now want to put restrictions on the rest of us.....which tells me it has nothing to do with terrorism, but is ALL about control.....same as the "Patriot Act" manure.

    Can't profile any longer, it is discriminatory. Does anyone care to define discriminatory for me? Seems reasonable to discriminate in this set of circumstances. I'll leave it as an exercise for the student to check Webster's for the real meaning. [troll] :evil:

    There are a couple gallon bags of cheap stuff in the fridge -- b:: b::

    See above. I boil it down and condense the vapors. Straight ethanol burns brightly --. Makes most excellent molotov cocktails, just throw QUICKLY and FAST after lighting.

    Actually Ghrit, I meant the disposable cell phones. The alcohol would be a good idea also though........

    several off us have them, maybe a directory of new reciepes would be in order, if baked properly

    So what? You don't, frankly know who uses a PC at a Coffee Shop either :rolleyes:
    It grinds me that anything "Private" is now suspect for wrongdoing...
    and these Privacy bans only affect us little guys. Try to find real information on the "Important People"... Plug me into Zabasearch and you find the last 4 addresses I was stupid enough to get magazine subscriptions or Electric service in my real name... Try a Zabasearch on Bill gates and see what you get... Nada. same with condalizza rice.

    TPTB seem to like their privacy pretty well. Oh that's so the bad guys can't get them.

    Privacy has become a game to me. Whenever anyone that is not a Government ask me for my info, I make it up. Home phone? I give a fake one, Home Address? Fake. Drivers License # when I write a check? 9 random numbers... I shred my junk mail too. (The few bits that actually do manage to come to the house... I work out of a UPS Store Mailbox for everything I do).

    I've said it before on this board; When subscribing to a magazine or buying viz mail order, give the name as something like "RST Services". It is not against any law to give out phony info so long as you are not intending to defraud in doing so. Like I've also said, Do NOT ever do this with the .gov. They already have your info. (Case in point), the local Sheriff's office called my Cell # the other day after they had recovered some stolen property of mine... AFAIK, that number is not published and I've never given it to local LEOs. But a Cell # is a better number to give out than a home number... Guard that one. We used to hide our cell numbers when it was really expensive to get calls on them. Not the case anymore

    Privacy [winkthumb]
