I must not be in on the 'know' or something, as I don't get how this is interesting.

- Either it's a joke, and boring.
- Or it's real, and who cares, because it doesn't affect anybody, because it has no bite.
- Or it's real, and who cares, because I'm sure your average coffee server never got the memo.

Summary: bunch of anti-government people on a libertarian forum either have their inside jokes, or they go around and get all up in arms over non events.

It is one of the funnest threads in a long time.....

"We are just fools. We insanely believe that we can replace one politician with another and something will really change. The ONLY possible way to achieve change is to change the very system of how government functions. Until we are prepared to do that, suck it up for your future belongs to the madness and corruption of politicians."

So what, just continue to pay your coffee cash. Once they have a few hundred million terrorist they have to take actions ... or so.  Tongue

It's Bruno of Sandwich, Illinois, located VERY near the corner of Castle and Center streets. I could gentling toss a sugar cube out my window and hit the middle of the T-intersection.

Only 5 more hours to prove that the FBI has nothing but pussies on their force. Pussies for not enforcing a law of which they imposed. My crime: paying for coffee with cash--I'm a Terrorist!

Wait, what? This can't be right! Is it?

Well, it's been over 24 hours and I'm sad to report that THE FBI CONSIST OF NOTHING BUT PUSSIES!!!

Now, let's look at how stupid this is. If you were to go into most convenience stores and try to pay for a cup of coffee with a credit card, guess what. Most of the time you won't be able to do it.

How many of you have seen a sign like this before?



Now, if the FBI can't even get this tiny aspect right, what the fuck else are they getting wrong?

I guess you made up that picture using gimp or so. Remember you are a terrorist, thus can´t be trusted! Huh

I can see it now. Me, as the Da Bitcoin Guy, trying to get pass TSA in my get-up after purchasing a cup of coffee at the terminal. They'll be looking at these shoes after they when through the metal detector.



On a side note, I'm glad the government is finally declaring war on the internet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0OZlGu-kMo

If every transaction is done using the debit/credit cards the banks will be able to effectively tax every purchase. This is not due to deregulation, in fact it is illegal in most (if not all) states to charge customers differently based on the method of payment.

Wanna learn how to tie your shoe?

It's a very easy thing to do
Just sit on down and I'll give you the scoop
What's that? It's called the loop-dee-loop
You gotta take a lace in each hand
You go over and under again
You make a loop-dee-loop and pull
And your shoes are lookin' cool
You go over and back, left to right
Loop-dee-loop and you pull 'em tight
Like bunny ears or a Christmas bow
Lace 'em up and you're ready to go

I accidentally went to defcon one year (long story), and gathered myself a "computer brain". I wanted to fly home with it so before getting in line I asked TSA agents what I should do with this bucket of components in red colored water (simulating formaldehyde). They said dump out the liquid so I had to go into the bathroom and take a stall... then dump dump dump dump dump dump dump dump dump. Then I got in line. When my time came I got the special treatment because the manager wanted to see my computer brain.

Just glad I live in the UK (for now) .As paying is cash for a cup of coffee is still normal even though a fair number of people use loyalty cards and debit cards now to pay for a cup of coffee.
I once saw a person in UK buying an iPhone 4S in cash (yeah,you heard that right) and there was no apparrent issue with the store/customer over this.Not even a suspicion (the customer in question was not from the UK).This was the Apple store as well.Apparently if you have the means to buy something,it's not suspicous (I guess) over here.

This is funny. What I mean is, it's funny how your belief of what it's like to pay for stuff in the U.S. is skewed by forum threads like this. For your information, the reality is, paying for stuff in the U.S. is exactly as you have just described it in the UK.

I accept that my view is skewed by threads like this.Thing is though that this info has also been talked about on other parts of the net as well so I got that impresson from those sites as well.I rely on the internet and other sources to find out what things are like outside the UK as I tend not to trust mainstream news (on tech anyway as they fear monger about privacy enabling hackers,blah,blah.) If the US is like UK for paying for things (as described above) then it's all good. I do wonder how many shop keepers actually take this advice seriously as most people will continue to use their common sense on what's odd and what's normal. Maybe this advice is just there to keep people on their toes rather than help anyhting,who knows?

I think everyone missed that memo. Short answer as to who takes it seriously: nobody, because nobody knows about it - not management, not the cashiers, and not the paying public. And if they did know about it, nobody would care.
