Seen that, quite okay,
Aldo the "chase" is a bit silly sometimes, if you really want to "erase" yourself from trackers then some of the clues he left would be natural to avoid imho for someone who thinks about this a bit.
Real Circuit design time in minutes= (2 + Nscopes) Testim + (40 +120 Kbrewski) Nfriends

Testim = estimated time in minutes Nscopes= number of oscilloscopes present Kbrewski = linear approx of the nonlinear beer effect Nfriends = number of circuit design friends present

Yeah, surely you can track someone down by such clues unless he is well linked in which case you are the one getting in trouble. It is the big scale criminals that will get away with it no matter how many cameras you put on them.

Personaly I could not care less about the number of cameras pointed at me or if people know bank account numbers etc. Truth is, nobody really gives a shit about the average person. Unless you are a celeb ofc. ::)

So what if they have cameras in toilets? (e.g. Manchester Piccadily train station in the UK platform 13,14.) The person watching the feed has probably seen what you are trying to hide so many times that he/she doesnt care anymore. And what if someone is pleasing him/herself from those videos? Gross, but I could not care less.

What does wind me up though is nonsense airport regulations and being treated like a criminal because of the real criminals that always achieve their goals. "Do you have any liquids in your bags sir?". "Nop". "Ok sir, this way". Want to take some oriental sauce with you on the plane after visiting a country in the far East? Put it in the freezer overnight! Goes straight through the scanners.

I mean, and this is a question to those buying airport security equipment, how many bombs have you caught by examining peoples bags, radiating them with THz, taking odour samples from laptops, making moms taste the milk for their kids, prohibiting more than 100ml of liquid on board, forcing people to buy transparent bags that cost $2 each etc etc etc.

There must be around 50 people or more in the security screening area. What stops someone from blowing up himself and taking with him all those people? Nothing. Oh, maybe we need to have those checks outside the airport or, just to be sure, check everyone at their house before going to the airport, or ideally dictate to them what to pack. Bloody idiots.

Surely acts of terrorism are to be condemned (and left to politicians instead), but I would argue airport security staff do it on thousands of people on a daily basis by applying the regulations set by governing bodies.

Had to get it out.
