The was a program on TV the other day about people in Germany (at least I think it was Germany) lining up to be 'chipped' so that they can be their own credit/membership card at night clubs. If they want to buy a drink at the bar the barman simply scans their shoulder. This is happening for real now ... over my dead body I say (though given the political climate in the UK I wouldn't be surprised if all corpses aren't tagged before long!).
Orwellian or what ... maybe a new corporation called 666 is about to emerge and the post apocalytic age is about to start.
