It has occurred to me that when you go and eat at ANY restaurant or fast food outlet, someone in the back could purposely poison my food.
People should take great care when eating out to ensure that they know exactly who is preparing their food. It wouldn't take much for one bored chef to put a few drops of somethin' somethin' in everyone's food and poison hundreds, if not thousands of people.
I wouldn't trust the drive through, when you give your order through the speaker, you just don't know who is listening on the other end. If it was a chef out to poison someone and he mistook your voice for his enemy's, you would be killed.
While I am on it, what about ordering pizza, I guess that's to be avoided too! Not only do they know what you eat and when but now they know where you LIVE TOO! If a pizza cook was PO'd at you, he could sell your home address to thieves he knows, and they could rob you while you were not home or even worse, invade your home while you sleep, putting your kids at risk too!
Don't even get me started on cab drivers! The first thing THEY want to know is where I am going! It sends shivers down my spine to think that someone might know where I've been.
I threw out an offer for free magazines from my ISP, as a valued customer, I could have a free Chatelaine subscription. What I didn't think of at the time was that the offer had my name and address on it! Now the G-Man, along with every dumpster diver in town, can get hold of my name and address too! If police wanted to find me, they'd just have to offer a bum a bag of pop bottles and he'd sell me out!
What's funniest though is that the people who fear the Internet security are the same people who tear a customer file in half and throw it in the trash. They leave old data tapes and disks laying around or pinned to their office ceiling. They throw away personal info all the time, they leave tracks everywhere they go, but they fear that their country's government will spy in their data packets and arrest them while on vacation in Bangladesh. As for customer data security, I've seen some really tight networks, and then people at the same company just throwing printouts, with customer info on them, in the trash, not shredded.
OMG, I'm gonna take my paranoia to my mountain base and hide out, WOLVERINES!!!
Man, Americans are a paranoid lot!
Watching Doomsday Preppers is always a good giggle though, *$'ing nutbags!
