A FUNNY POSSIBILITY--The Whole POINT of the Internet of Things Is So Big Brother Can Spy On You (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by pragnos @, Sunday, March 19, 2017, 21:02 @ LurkyLou


There is a midrash or story about the story of Abraham where he supposedly smashes the idols that his father made for a living. In this expanded version, Abraham smashes all of the idols except the largest one and he puts a big stick in its hands. When his father comes into the shop aghast at the carnage he grills Abraham about what happened and Abraham indicates that the big idol got mad and smashed all of the smaller idols. Who could argue with that if the idols were indeed supposed to have special powers?! Then there is the turn about in the movie "Brazil" where DeNiro's character the engineer maintenance man who is off the grid re-pipes the sewage so it goes to the air supply hoses to the moon suits the clean up guys are wearing. So we combine these scenarios and we have the IOT destroying itself. Oh, but we are too smart to let that happen! LOL--pragnos.
