    Default Microchipping is here, in Sweden. What could go wrong?



    I'm with Russell Brand on this issue. "Voluntary?" Hmmm...for how long?

    Til the brainwashed in Wokestan start clamoring for everyone to get a chip.

    "Next thing you know, they'll be clamoring for lockdowns"
    "You're a conspiracy theorist"

    "Next thing you know, they'll be mandating vaccines..."
    "You're a conspiracy theorist"

    "Next thing you know, they'll be wanting us to show our papers..."
    "You're a conspiracy theorist"

    "Next thing you know, they'll be putting us in covid camps"
    "You're a conspiracy theorist"

    "Next thing you know, they'll be wanting us to get microchipped..."
    "You're a Q-anon, Bill Gates hating conspiracy theorist..."

    What kind of world are we in when now Russell Brand makes more sense than Anthony Fauci's mask policies?

    In other news, woke morons in Utah are clamoring for the National Guard to lockdown the unvaccinated:

    "Were Utah a truly civilized place, the governor's next move would be to find a way to mandate the kind of mass vaccination campaign we should have launched a year ago, going as far as to deploy the National Guard to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere,"
    "Next thing you know, this will be like Nazi Germany (or some other totalitarian state)"
    "You're a..."

    Maybe the "Mass Formation Psychosis" folks are on to something.

    Finish every day, and be done with it.
    You have done what you could - some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in, forget them as fast as you can, tomorrow is a new day.
    You shall begin it well and serenly, and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

    Have there been any studies into the possible side-effects of these implants? Asking for a friend.

    Probably won’t be too much of an issue. They have been implanting devices for a long time, including superficial ones in the extremities (hormone therapy).

    Yes Chuck, you are again exhibiting precisely that. Please show ethernautrix some common courtesy. There are plenty of other threads you can fail to troll me in.

    Bless your heart.

    This reminded me of when my ex and I, walking through a park, encountered a couple walking a bloodhound. We stopped to pet the dog and my ex suggested that the couple teach the dog to sniff their keys so he could find them if they lost them.

    I need my chip to remind where I've read things. It's not going to be a single function device for me, oh no sir.

    I figure if it's important enough to remember, it's worth writing down. Otherwise, I wouldn't need all these pens...

    Hmmm, get rid of pens for a chip? Nah...

    Back to the point, and the conspiratorial aspect aside; what do these people think is going to happen during a power outage? No, your chip isn't better than a physical key when you're locked outside your house. The over-reliance on technology is going to be the downfall of this new-fangled generation.

    Finish every day, and be done with it.

    Agreed. A couple EMP weapons and a good part of the country will be in trouble. However I’m more worried about the fed making a digital currency.

    I think microchipping people is a great idea! If a person gets lost, they can be scanned and returned to their pets.

    I think they're basically inert, except to electromagnetic detection. It's been a common practice with dogs for quite some time. Simple passive tags, called PIT (Passive Integrated Transponders) have been used to ID migrating salmon and other wild species for quite a while. I went to a training session on implanting them and setting up reading stations in the field, to track wildlife migrations and residence.



    Each tag is assigned a digital ID. Passing through a magnetic field, it responds with the ID, which is recorded.

    Strikes me as curious that Russell Brand is happy documenting his location and personal views in videos, but thinks of e-tags as insidious.

    Wonder if the Republicans will adopt them for voter ID?

    Documenting his location and sharing his personal views is voluntary. I think the concern people have is that they will be tracked without their consent. Not realizing, of course, that their smartphone does exactly that, as do the license plate scanners that are all over the place. 1984 was already here a long time ago.

    Wonder if the Republicans will adopt them for voter ID?
    Only if it works to their advantage. Same for the Democrats. I don't see why folks make such a big fuss over voter ID. When I first started voting, decades ago, I had to present my drivers license as proof of ID. Anyone who does not have a drivers license can get a state ID card. Those who cannot be bothered to get an ID card must not care terribly much about voting or buying liquor.

    More recently, no proof of ID is required in our local elections. People in the apartment complex across the street throw polling place notifications for previous tenants in the recycle bin. One of the tenants told me that twice some stranger rifled through the bin and took those notifications and credit card application forms. Anyone with one of those notifications could go to the polling location, claim to be somebody else, and vote in their place. After seeing that, I agree 100% that voters should be require to show proof of identity. Chipping people would make that super convenient.
