    I tried to create a blog on blogger today and they won't let me unless i have a cell phone. They will send a SMS with a number ... you get the picture. Is this for everybody or random people? This $**T will make things more difficult for everyone.

    I think the next best solution is to host your own blogs on your own server.

    There are 250 free blogging platforms besides Blogspot, maybe now is the time to explore some alternatives, just in case things become even more difficult in G land.

    He must be a fucking tard.

    Let me go off topic for a moment...

    Long ago, a man said you'd have a chip the size of a cell implanted in your hand and you would not be able to live life without it. People called him crazy, people came up with dubious characterizations of world leaders and crazy ass meanings to it, RFID was even born.

    The man was talking about Cell Phones. PAyment processing, identification, soon, your wallet will be completely replaced by a cell phone, and so will your keys. You will get your thumb scanners on your own phone, not on doors. You get the picture. They have to be able to dial emergency whether they have a plan activated or not because they WILL cut you off of communications etc when they want to bend you... This is no joke. Call me the nut next, like they called that man years ago, they're building prison cells.
