I don't really think this revelation was necessary or definitely in the public interest but I'm open to discussion x
Expecting a "Big Yellow Building on the Thames in Vauxhall Full of Government Spies" story next.
then what the hell DO they do?
We're being spied on all the time. If anyone thought deferently, then they're fucking stupid.
they've got nothing to worry about
GCHQ agent - Aha, here comes the Russian delagate now. That's right comrade, check your emails and tell us all your secrets. Hang on, he's coming over here.
Russian Delagate - A skinny latte with two extra shots please. And whats the muffin of the day?
GCHQ agent - I knew we forgot something...
Hi can I see the special muffin menu?
very Russian delegate
As if that isn't part of their training
Places don't bake their own muffins they just get them from Costco or somewhere like that. There's only about 5 standard muffin types and it's not that much space or time resources to have a reserve supply not on display of each. Muffins are also the sort of thing people know which one they like e.g. I like double chocolate but not chocolate chip so there's a chance you could alienate like a huge proportion of the muffin buying market for no good reason. I'm not an expert but I imagine it's poor business sense to sell one type at a time.
Unless you just meant it's just a promotion in which case the Russian delegate is a bit tight.
(I should have just said soup of the day :D )
Between secrecy & privacy and between individuals & institutions
Public institutions ought to have full transparency and individuals ought to have the right to privacy
It's all a bit of a mess isn't it
to go overseas and kill people? Officially they're known as "the army" but a more alarmist name would be THE KILLBOT FACTORY.
There are legal declarations and directives governing their deployment and killbotting and such like
Not really comparable
Not really acceptable human behaviour either to deploy kill bots ... but that's another thread I guess
were in a format which could be easily decoded tbh. It's one thing to intercept network traffic it's another to actually understand it.
is there actually a law against this?
