Gut Rumbles

what happens if you're hacked?

I don't think I want any part of this technology. I'm a big enough fucktard on a PC--- I damn sure don't need my entire body networked.

Using RedTacton-enabled devices, music from an MP3 player in your pocket would pass through your clothing and shoot over your body to headphones in your ears. Instead of fiddling around with a cable to connect your digital camera to your computer, you could transfer pictures just by touching the PC while the camera is around your neck. And since data can pass from one body to another, you could also exchange electronic business cards by shaking hands, trade music files by dancing cheek to cheek, or swap phone numbers just by kissing.

That idea scares the shit out of me. Why can't we be satisfied with old-fashioned fucking? I've GOT the hang of that, and I think it's pretty good just the way it is. Don't make me learn anything new. I'm an old dog. I don't like new things.

The only chip I want is the one I carry on my shoulder.


Ginger ale on the keyboard and monitor! LMAO

I have been screwed, blued, tattoed and someone did a fraud on me last year, what else could happen? Death? Who cares, the person that used my good credit rating, spent 14,800.00 in a half a day before they found him. I did not have to pay a single dime.

I love learning new tricks, but I DO agree with you on one thing, some of the new technology scares the hell out of me.
I "see" all the good applications, but I also see all the bad applications. Or at least enough of them to be concerned.
I'll take a lot of the "harder old-fashioned" stuff any day.

Reminds me of the Woody Allen Orgasmatron.

Acidman to a nubile user: "Where is the Universal Roscoe Bus? I need to jack in and download something."

Hacked, hell. What about viruses!?

The cold or the flu I can handle -- but who wants to add Klez to the list of STD's?

There's some positive potential, too -- this technology might be able to passively monitor your heart, like a permanent EKG. More at

Also, I found your site via Technorati. My blog's name is a play on borborygmi, which means, coincidentally enough, "gut rumblings."
