Attract Government Spies By Tweeting These Words

The Department of Homeland Security makes fake users on Twitter and Facebook with which to follow suspicious people. But what if you're not shifty enough to get your own government e-stalker? No problem: Just tweet "My cow collapsed, and now there's a human to animal infection outbreak among illegal immigrants." That should bring heaps of DHS scrutiny, judging from a fresh lawsuit seeking access to the agency's data. In the suit, the privacy advocates at Electronic Privacy Information Center said DHS is monitoring social networks, blogs and message boards for users saying terms like "human to animal," "collapse," "infection," "outbreak," and "illegal immigrants."

If you use these words and phrases, the government might follow you, record your activity, and share information about you with local, state, federal, and foreign governments. Since EPIC has thus far received no cooperation from the government and is suing for access, it's not clear how the nonprofit compiled its list of red-flag keywords. Hopefully its research did not involve human to animal contact, smuggling things through airport security, or bribing government employees!

I don't want to know what "human to animal contact" means.

I fucking hate that fake Italian bull dyke. Is this why I always get harassed at the airport?

I wonder how many people read that article and then think about tweeting those phrases as a goof or in protest, but don't actually do it because of fear that Nappy Latino's agency will actually start monitoring them.

You guys do understand that just because someone wrote something on the Internet, doesn't mean it's true? And in fact probably isn't?

Wait, you just wrote this on the internet, so it's gotta be true, but you're saying stuff written on the internet isn't true, so fuck me this just got complicated!

Awww.. get outta here. If it's on the internet it's truer

than words spoken by someone with a microphone.

Everybody knows that.

I want to meet the Gman that has to monitor this message board. I hope he is the same person that has to monitor the r/spacedicks subreddit, that guy is really earning his paycheck.

It's like /b/ without all the wit and intelligence. I feel like I just witnessed a baby being rayped by a large negro.

Went to reddit, to see what's with that spacedicks stuff, but then got sidetracked when I saw this on the front page.

Made me think of Kirk. I wonder what his New Year's gonna be like. Is he invited over to Alex Jones' house for the big party, or is it his mom's basement again?

We'll show up in Fahrenheit 9/11 2 after learning about Kirk's death.

Why can't she just be hot and naked in movies? Nothing she's ever said or done has ever made me laugh.

And 3rd Rock from the Sun guy is annoying now.

Well she's not a comic, or a porn star. She just acts all cutesy and cool in movies, and sings catchy songs you can enjoy for a few listens, until you get bored with them. What's wrong with that?

It's not anything brilliant, but at least she's original. That's pretty rare these days.

Actually, I suspect even a gay guy, provided he wasn't a flaming queer-o, would at least consider switching sides for a night to hit that.
AH? Comment?

Then again, AH strikes me as a gay guy who might get with a chick just for the lulz under the right situation.


On a side note, Kirk has a new account but kept the same retarded avatar. I like Angel, but he took an image from the worst episode of the entire series.

That's from Angel? I'm really glad I got bored with the show before I got to that episode.
