I've been bit fascinated with the "EURion Constellation" (which prevents copiers & laser printers from reproducing currency in color) and have been thinking up some fun ideas. Hide it in documents sent to gov. agencies, include it in protest signs, put it on temporary tattoos on your face, print it on an otherwise clear license place cover, etc.
It won't stop your pic from being taken, but it might throw a little wrench in the gears. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/EURion_constellation

Scene: installing a new copier
Me: Do you have an I.T. company manage your network or does someone here?
Them: Oh we don't have I.T., we just have a Comcast modem.
Me: (finds CheckPoint appliance is the gateway) It looks like your blocking the ports we need
Them: Hang on, let me call our TECH COMPANY and see if they know.
I'm turning 40 in a few days and I feel like I'm disappointing my family by not having any big celebration ideas, but I just haven't been able to even think about it. With a 10 month old & the past couple weeks prepping for my 18 yo son to move into our small apartment with us there hasn't been time. And there isn't space or money for much right now. I know I want to go to #HonkFest, have fun, and not feel pressured for it to mean something
But at least everyone is running with admin privileges 😳
I've been thinking about our relationship with social media (FB in particular) in terms of the classic "deal with the devil" of literature.
Being promised a wondrous power in return for a seemingly simple agreement, but the power turns out to be a curse and the agreement was much more expensive than you ever imagined. Only I can't see how the clever protagonist will outsmart the devil this time, and everyone else in the world has already blindly accepted the deal on your behalf.
