Stuff I'm Thinking About

Spy On Your Neighbours

A Good Samaritan Product of the Month:

I was eating dinner this evening and my Dad was watching television. While in the kitchen preparing a second burrito for myself, I overheard an ad I had seen previously but completely forgotten about. “Ever wonder what people are talking about across the room?” Well, wonder no longer with the magical — and conveniently pocket-sized — ListenIn. You no longer have to assume that those beautiful women working out on the stationary bikes are talking about how sexy you are — it’s nice to confirm that I look amazing drenched in sweat and wearing my ‘God these weights are heavy’ face.

“… or listen in to a conversation from across the street.” This I find particularly useful. Not only can you find out whether or not those people down the street actually are the drug fiend murdering psychopaths you thought they were, but in an era so saturated in terrorism, what about those new neighbours? You know. The ones with the darker skin. Check it out. If you hear anything that sounds suspicious or unfamiliar, call Big Brother.

Orwell would be pleased.
