    You should try it yourself.
    That doesn't logically follow at all. We actually refer to that as a straw man argument. Attribute something to me that I didn't say, and then knock that down.

    There are positive and negative repercussions to every issue....gee thanks. Is that what all your years of wisdom and learning have taught you? Golly.

    Well you know, our buddies at the NSA probably are monitoring this very website. How does that make you feel? This is a political website, and they're probably checking in quite often to see if there's anyone crazy enough to talk about bombing a building or killing the president or something.

    Just in case you thought we were having a private conversation or something.

    But you know what? Who gives a ****. Got nothing to hide, and can't make them stop anyway, so you just keep on keeping on. And that was really my point all along, wasn't it, gramps?

    If someone was recorded dining with their mistress and it got put on Facebook or something would the restaurant be liable? The trouble with Google glasses is that you can't tell when they are recording. If a person uses a smart phone in that fashion it's pretty obvious.

    Google glasses were a dumb idea from the get go for this very reason. Knowing that a person is taking your picture and sound and doing god knows what with it has got to be unnerving for a lot of people for all kinds of reasons.

    Thank you.

    I just don't understand how people can be so cavalier when it comes to their own safety.

    Anyone could be looking like they are just checking their E-mail on their I Phone while surreptitiously taking video of you stuffing your face.
    You want the restaurant owner to ban ALL cell phones from his restaurant?

    Why don't you see a difference in a device that has to be pointed in a direction and another device that turns with the turn of the head.

    Things could be recorded that the recorder didn't intend, but he still can upload it without the persons permission.

    By the way, if it comes to that where people do not feel safe in a restaurant because there are people recording other patrons, all devices will be banned. Is that what you people want?

    You are on camera virtually all the time when you are out in public. Stores, cabs, buses, subways, just walking down the street...smile you're on candid camera...everywhere.
    If you don't " feel safe" because someone may video tape you ...stay home and keep the shades down.
    WTF are you doing in a restaurant that you are afraid someone will see you doing anyway?

    I should be more grateful for our modern Information Age, than I currently am.
