stumped by Urban Legend again. My recent Laser Printer comment brings out the Minister of Information shrouded in her full glory. (Lissa knows a lot of stuff about a lot of things. She is brilliant)

Charles, you Bumbling Fool,(well, I embellished that part)


The government is NOT tracking your laser prints by imbedded serial
numbers. Sheesh. You'd think a reasonably intelligent person could
come up with a better story. Chip embedded "near the laser", and
"millimeter" sized yellow dots? Give me a break.

A paper on tracking counterfeit documents by analyzing for make and
model (not each individual serial number) was presented a couple of
weeks ago at a conference. That's probably what gave someone the idea
for the spoof.

But they really could have done a better job with the technical
information. How about we write one on how doctors are secretly
injecting microchips with flu shots which let airport security
scanners read your identity?

Need I say it again? Lissa is super ultra cool.


in other, non legend news. A searchable database of comic book covers. No powerpoint presentation need be boring again. Type the word you want in the blank, it searches for a match.
