To avoid NSA spying I only communicate via homeopathic quartz crystals. They're unhackable because Big Pharma won't allow the government believe in them. It's either that or use the Smellogram.

FullMetalPanda: dittybopper: Actually makes sense, and it's why I use a manual typewriter to make one time pads:  No data remanence issues.

vpb: Actually, they are switching back to typewriters to avoid leaks.

The idea that they didn't know that the NSA was spying on them is cute, considering that the NSA was created specifically to spy on them back during the cold war.


The Soviets had a big problem when much of their secret stuff was hard-copy. It seems there was always a toilet paper shortage, particularly in East Germany and Berlin. So....

Some of the most valuable intelligence gathered against the Soviets was fished out of the sewers in Berlin.
