Interesting...

Evidently, there are plans out there to put microchips into your drivers' license to make it scannable as you walk by. If they actually try it, here's a simple way to defeat its scannability; wrap it in aluminium foil. That forms a "Faraday Cage", whereupon you can ask any government nannies where the 4th Amendment says they have the right to scan your drivers license without your consent--when they complain that their machine couldn't scan your license.

You're welcome.

eventually, they'll get around to microchipping every newborn baby, just like they do pets now.

and then what?
they out law foil underwear, of course.

I wrap a lot of things in aluminum foil.

Yah, saw your kids' blogs, and they didn't take to that very well at all. :^)

Sorry, couldn't resist. But there are some legitimate uses for the stuff.

Don't forget that the new passports have this "upgrade" as well. Take care when traveling, especially in foreign countries where scamming is rampant.

I imagine the next step is put lo-jack onto it. Think of it, you get laid off from work and they'll track you down in Cancun, when you should be sitting home looking for a job.

I should be so lucky as to be in Cancun. This strikes me as funny. How are you going to wrap your license plate in foil?
