Haha! There is still time.

Having watched the Corbett Report's "5 Privacies You Didn't Know You Lost," I decided to do an experiment.

I've been active on the internet for some time now. And various different photos of me, including me with a butt hanging out of my mouth have been uploaded to the internet.

For example, there is this one,

And others,

So I took a new photo using my personal tracking device

and did a google image search on that photo.

Sidetrack

For those unfamiliar with how to do this stuff here is a short tutorial.

How to perform a Google Image search.

Step one:

Pick an image you would like to search for, for example,

Step 2

Save the image you want to use in your search by hovering your mouse cursor over the image. The pointer will turn into a little hand with the index finger pointing upward. I would have chosen a different finger for this example. Then you simply click the right mouse button once and a drop down menu should appear.

Select "Save image as..." and save the image to a directory you will be able to remember. Give the image a name you will be able to remember.

Step 3

Find Google Image Search on the internet. The easiest way I can explain this, even to the most hopeless computer newb, is to simply google, "Google Image Seach."

Don't worry about miss-spelling "search" you should still find the right page.

It should look like this,

Click on,

and you should arrive at a page that looks like this,

Please note the three icons on the right side of the search box. Look for the icon that looks like a camera. If I have to do that for you too, what you are looking for is this,

Click on the camera and it should take you to a page that looks like this,

Select the tab that says, "Upload an image." Then click on the button that says, "Choose file."

When you do that, an explorer box should pop up and you will have to fish around for the image you wanted to search for.

If you can't figure out the rest for yourself by following the prompts, you're pretty fucking useless, and you should reconsider whether computer ownership is really for you.

End of Tutorial

So I went through these steps with this image,

and this is what the image search returned, (see more here)

Of course, I laughed at the idea of how many innocent assholes would be arrested before they finally narrowed their search down to me.

In fact, I recognized some of the people who were returned by the search.

They included this guy,

And this guy,

And this guy,

And of course, my favorite,

So at least, as far as Google is concerned, they have a lot of work to do before this technology is perfected.

I have no doubt that they will perfect it. When that time comes, the warnings in the following video from the Corbett Report will be too late too heed.

If you value your privacy, you need to pay attention.

How to Save the Ontario Basic Income Program!Background Leftist Ontario virtue signallers have been freaking out over the Ford government's cancellation of the Basic Income free money project that was cooked up by the Wynne government to build up their voter base. I follow a few of these caring individuals on Twitter to study their self delusions. They've all been afflicted lately with Ford Derangement Syndrome, peacocking their indignation at the cancellation of Wynne's free money giveaway "program." But does the program really have to be cancelled? Of course not. All it would require to be saved is for the virtue signallers, and there are loads of them, from Deb Matthews and Andrea Horwath, to a parade of obscure, Twitter addicts, and their offended fans. The good news is that the program can easily continue on a voluntary basis. The only difference is that the leftists would have to reach into their own pockets to show how committed and compassionate they …
Poor Uber Driver Oh my. This is a sad story. Here is an Uber driver voicing his concerns in the Uber driver's forum about whether or not his "sharing economy" gig is paying off. It's possible that this is not a genuine post from a genuine Uber driver. I see that. It's the kind of schlopp I would write if I were in a mischievous mood. On the other hand, given what I already know about the Uber scam, and the people it exploits in order to get them to employ "assets they already own," in Tim Hudak's famous phrase, it's entirely reasonable to believe that this is a REAL Uber driver, who is just beginning to figure out who is making money, or should be making money, and who is getting royally boned. (See my story about the Uber driver who drove a football player from Chicago to Buffalo for minus $38.50.) I knew it was a scam from the beginning. That is why, when people asked me why, instead of tolerating the City of Hamilton's demonstrably abs…
Matthew Green in a Nutshell Well, not just Matthew Green. These criticisms broadly apply to most politicians, especially those of a communist, or "liberal," bent. But since Mr. Green seems to enjoy the publicity he gets when squirting his virtue signals on every political hydrant he can find, to bolster his self-image as some kind of hero for the marginalized, I will use him as an example in this analysis. He just got more digital ink on (where else?) the CBC website. Now he's pretending to care about people who, for whatever reason, choose to patronize payday loan places. He claims, "he's tired of what he says is a predatory industry that preys on Hamilton's most vulnerable." And by this, he is not referring to that predatory industry that pays his salary at the expense of the tax vulnerable customers of the Corporation of the City of Hamilton. (You know, like the people who are being forced to pay for engineered gridlock on Hamilton's downtown…
