    My god. The United States sounds more and more like George Orwell's writing every day. I am just wondering when the pot is finally going to boil over. At this point it isn't a matter of if, but when.

    What? The US warning people about "threats". Never thought they would do that. Next they will be warning you all about drugs, knives, (not guns, guns are ok aparantly), pedo's, your neighbours, bird/misc flu, anthrax in the post, terrorists.

    [not sarcasm at all read this bit and take it in]

    And all the while heart disease kills many many more than the above multiplied because of a **** diet. PRIORITIES AMERICA, I feel very bad for the clever people over there that can see this is all bullshit, I send my best wishes to you all because my country is slowly following yours :/

    If they really cared the least bit about data breaches they wouldn't allow it to be accessed
