    Yeah that one malfunctioned as well if I remember correctly.

    My biggest fear is something like this chip being used by say, loan sharks, the government, or criminal elements.

    Although come to think of it, criminal elements pretty much describes the other two I listed

    The basic model would consist of a tiny GPS transceiver placed in a capsule and inserted under a person's skin, so that authorities could track him easily.

    I don't know about a killer chip but the chip idea is a good one considering that a number of the "reformed" Jihadists who went through the Saudi reeducation and reform programs (read revolving door policy) have fled the country and reengaged in the Jihad.

    Every day, the world gets just a little bit creepier. Of course, if you are a law abiding citizen residing in any nation that eventually uses that chip, you have nothing to be afraid of, right? Just keep your thoughts to yourself, and everything will be fine.

    BTW, the device is great for those nagging mothers-in-law.

    I would not support this device in anyone no matter how emotional an argument was constructed. Opening this can of worms is a horrible idea.

    Part of the patent involves this:

    1. If you ever draw a cartoon of the prophet it is activeted.
    2. If you ever drink alchohol but you are not part of the Royal family it it activated.

    And eventually.....

    If you criticize, Obama, Democrats, Republicans, the government in general, or engage in a protest, it is activated. I know, I know, it sounds over the top, but think about it. If you agree that is should be used on child molesters, drug dealers, and other scum, then it is a slippery slope towards, one day, using it on those who speak out against the government.

    Before people get worked up over this, realize that all it is is a failed patent application. I (or anyone else) could draw up designs for the exact same thing in about 30 minutes. That doesn't mean there's a chance in hell that it will ever exist.

    This type of story serves only to allow people to reaffirm their stances on issues like this.

    Bud, I think you've got the wrong perspective on this.

    We already have GPS and Verichip. Only a matter of time before the two are combined. Adding a cyanide capsule is evil, but hardly shocking given how some people's minds work. I've been expecting something like this for a while now.

    So the patent was not granted because of legal technicalities...that does not mean the device itself was not functional. You hardly need a patent to manufacture something, if someone wants to badly enough...and I guaran-d***-tee you someone will. This is tailor made for the modern dictator.

    Yet another reason we need to guard our privacy, and our self-ownership, jealously from the government. I would not support doing this to anyone, it is just way too over the top.
