    Im confused - that commercial is about a TV chip that skips programs parents dont want their kids to see - why is the title of this human microchip? That makes it sound like an ad for micro-chipping people..

      Not to put the thread back on topic or anything, but Counterpunch tends to say odd stuff to peek interest (or perhaps provoke interest).   He got you to sit through a couple minutes of Muppets singing wink 

      What I find interesting about all this is that the VChip (what Kermit is singing about) is about 10 years old now and was mandated by the FCC to be installed in all TV sets larger than 13 inches back in 2000.  So Big Brother has been lurking in your TV waiting to pounce since 2000 (unless you still have your old set from 1999).

      It's probably a good idea, but I think a good parenting practice might be to watch TV with your kids, but that's just me.

    It does, but wouldn't that be handy?

    No, it would be 1984 in 2007 and we're already close enough.

    -shrug- the 80's are cool.

    But seriously, think of all the things we could do with human microchips. No one would ever get lost again.

    1984 is a book, not a decade!

      What a classic.  Ah, dystopia.

    This is where the generation gap is obvious.

    The 80's however, are a decade, and I quite like them.

    I would advise you to go ahead and read it. Just to decrease generation gap smile And may be to learn why you don't want human microchips... there are other books that can clarify the issue even further, for example Animal Farm by the same author, George Orwell...

    I had to read Animal Farm in English as a text. And I guess now I have to go read 1984. The library's open today ^_^

    Honestly, I think microchipping humans would be an amazing thing. Maybe in a hundred years or so they could even fight disease for us or something lol.

    Have you ever done anything illegal?

    Thought anything illegal?

    Ever been somewhere you shouldn't have been?

    These are things that could be tracked by a chip implanted in the brain, if you buy in to a little paranoia and conspiracy theory.

    I think I'll pass on getting chipped if it comes around during my lifetime.  I prefer to tend to myself, thanks.

    I've got a chip in one of my kitties.  Thank God she's never gotten lost for more than a day, because I have no idea where I put the code information.  I wouldn't want a chip in me, because someone probably would definitely have the code.  Not that I do anything... illegal, except maybe swimming in my condo's pool after hours. If there were a chip in me, that would mean there were chips in a lot of others and I'd hate to be one of the pod people or a Stepford Wife...

    Human life must not be created for the purpose of destroying it.
    The plan includes new menu items and new TV commercials. smile

    The ad is fine but the title of this thread does not convey the same message !
