    Oh man, this so beats changing the video to go on at your local public access station the day before you start a new high school.

    Why would I panic? If someone ever decides to try and kill me, I hope their method of choice is to become and expert hacker and remotely fuck with some medical device I'm using.

    If instead they decide to use one of the million easier and more reliable methods to kill a person(i.e. shotgun blast to the face, decapitation with a kitchen knife, or the good old fashioned bashing the head in with a brick), then I'll panic.

    This all sounds like it still requires a hardwire to get into the system. It's not like someone can sit on a park bench with a laptop and fuck up people's insulin pumps. You need to connect to the computer sending signals to the pump and fuck with that.

    i will use my skinny dipping theory here, if someone wants me so dead that they are going to go that far out of there way to do it? good for them.

    oh and my skinny dipping theory? same as my no drapes theory, if you are going to go 300ft down my drive way to peep into my windows and watch me jerk off to chubby girl anal porn, you deserve to see it.
