    You were in Walmart today? That was your first mistake.

    And checks your criminal record, political affiliations, and immigration status.

    I go To Walmart for fashion tips. Never sure if I am way ahead or way behind the fashion curve.

    Not the best, but frak at $3 a bottle it is very drinkable. I think Walmart made a good choice with this one.

    That’s just what they told you it was doin’, man.
    It really is collecting your brain waves.
    I know.
    It took almost all of mine the last time I went to WalMart.
    I could barely find my car when I left.
    It’s a plot, I tell ya’!

    Yeah, those are fine, but the old tube robots scan way better. This one can't do the job of one running with a full set of vintage RCAs........

    What are you doing in a Walmart?

    Seriously. Life is great when you only go there every once in 15 years, to dispose of used motor oil or some such or to help a friend find an elderly relative who is lost in there someplace.

    No comment on that stuff, but I only buy cheap stuff if I'm going to dump it at a party.

    That's how it starts out doesn't it? From Roombas and Alexas to Terminators.

    There are no mom and pop stores anymore. Seriously. For general goods, every place I could possibly go is a chain of some sort. About the only mom and pop places left around me are barbers (though they're losing ground to chains) and some restaurants. I do MUCH prefer non-chain restaurants

    Edit: I do know there is a family owned music store in town, but I've been set on equipment since I moved last year and haven't been there.

    EXTERMINATE!!!

    Starts? Cars with computers/GPS/Sky Active in them, drones, automated vehicles. Air purifiers that transmit data, refrigerators that track what's in them and order more of what it thinks you need. Everyone carrying tracking devices on them (aka cell phones), wifi thermostats. I could go on and on, but it's already here.

    Great idea, although those tags are deactivated as the item is rung up, if I understand correctly.. The disturbing thing going on is all the data being collected on us, and sold, so we can be marketed to more effectively and efficiently. I've been trying to figure out how to poison the data well. At least for the time being, they can collect this data unimpeded. So I figure, let's find a way to feed them false or inaccurate data to confuse and obfuscate the data picture they are creating of each of us.

    I can appreciate the situation realizing now that I think about it , the myth of the big box monster is a reality, not a myth.:(

    Yes, there really are beasts that roam among us, which is very regrettable and knocks against my denial of how different life is now than it was when I was growing up :mad:
