Department Of Homeland Security wants my Hand?
DHS officials said that the newly disclosed policies–which apply to anyone entering the country, including US citizens–are reasonable and necessary to prevent terrorism… The policies cover ‘any device capable of storing information in digital or analog form,’ including hard drives, flash drives, cell phones, iPods, pagers, beepers, and video and audio tapes. They also cover ‘all papers and other written documentation,’ including books, pamphlets and ‘written materials commonly referred to as "pocket trash…"’"
It’s "The policies cover ‘any device capable of storing information in digital or analog form,…" that really got my attention. Remember the little trick with your knuckles to keep the number of days in various months straight? Presumably that would have to count as an analog information storage device. Goodbye hand.
