Doesn't the Bible say something about you will be given anumber. I'm not a very religious person, but it seems like I remember something about that when I was a kid. AND BIG BROTHER IS GETTIG BIGGER!!!!!!
I'm not so worried about big brother...I'm more afraid of the hundreds of little brothers out there running around trying to collect as much demographic data as they can about me so as they can fire off their stupid, targeted ads at me 24/7. Spammers ought to have their own special circle in hell, if they don't already...
I believe that number is called the Mark of the Beast or something like that. If you've ever heard the Boogiemonsters they have a tight song about that.
It's amazing how movies have influenced the minds of people. Demolition Man and Total Recall show what MIGHT happen in the future, with all of that GPS and number coding crap. There must be some bored-ass folks in this world. They should worry about themselves and not what you or I do.
