'Fire is hot, dude. Didn't you know that? What's the big deal?'

What cocktail of drugs do I need to eat to understand that logic?

You're being recorded. Right now. Deal with it.

Okay.

Any other advice or commands?

Yes. Cease and desist using shiatty analogies.


And miss out on all the cool drugs I am taking?

You are going to have a real hard time in the coming future, I feel kind of sorry for you. I guess you are moving to some remote farm soon?

No. I'm going to go buy a helmet cam.

Seriously though, in the larger scheme of things - who is the bigger douche - someone who is wearing a camera or a prick who would assault someone over it?  What if I wanted to smash your face for being ugly?

What if I wanted to team up with you and my new helmet cam, go for a nice bicycle ride and all you wanted to do was smash my face because you think I am ugly?

What if after I smashed your face and recorded it with my helmet cam I uploaded it to youtube and strangers started laughed at you while you were walking down the street....wait a minute, this is why you don't want to be recorded, right?

Wrong. I didn't say that I didn't want to be recorded. I said I wanted to buy a helmet cam and go on a bicycle ride with you.

I don't know what you are talking about.

I haven't ridden a bicycle in years, but you can ride biatch with me on my moto if you want.  I will point my helmet cam backwards to film your joy (sorry, will still upload that crap to youtube).

Folks, when you are out in public, you have no reasonable expectations to personal privacy. Somebody might be recording you on their cell phone and you wouldn't be able to do a damn thing about it (unless you're an ITG and want to pretend that you'd beat them up or break their camera), the google glass isn't going to be very different.  Only difference being that the people recording you will look like total jackasses now.

Good. You should be paranoid about it. You're going to film the wrong person.

By the way. What I said is cut and dry so that when people like you try to come back and say I said something I didn't it shows. 'Ima break your shiat' is carefully placed so people like you CAN'T say that I am going around telling people that I am going to assault them. I would say that.

You should expect that people are going to break your shiat when you have that stupid phone pointed at everything you are looking at even when you aren't recording anything because it looks stupid. Put it away.

That is not a reasonable expectation at all.  You are farking crazy.

Are you going to answer my question to your Weeners?

Are you going to start taking serious mental medications?


Mental medications? No.

Do you walk around with your cell phone pointed at everything you are looking at 100% of the time?

It's actually a really easy question.

Since you haven't answered or even denied it, I am ASSUMING that the answer is yes simply because you are equating using Google Glass to your cell phone as if they are the same things. The same way you are assuming that I go around assaulting people and breaking their cellphones.

On the other had you might answer 'No' you DON'T walk around with your cell phone out 100% of the time and realize that I am not even talking about you at all and you went off and made this whole damn thing way more complicated than it actually is.

This is what I like the most about you. Your ability to get right to the point.

Google turned to the dark side awhile ago.

"The dark side" in this case being offering you free services in exchange for serving you ads, while using your search history to at least try to make the ads somewhat relevant to you?

God forbid! How dare they?!?

Also, duckduckgo has a terrible search algo that returns crappy results.


1. I'll somehow survive not being in someone's sales demographic.

2. Yet I get the information I need by investing perhaps an extra minute. I'm ok with that.

Also why I pay for almost everything with cash, will not use my actual name or address on any shopping discount cards, etc.

Wouldn't they do that now? It's just a different way of recording video, not some scary new technology.

I realize that; but, I'm saying if every third idiot has a pair; it would make surveillance that much easier.

They already require ISPs to keep a log of all the websites you visit; they already have phone providers keep a log of your texts. They can't get those records without a warrent or subpeona; as much protection as that is.
