Wow. That must have been some purple micro dot I'd guess.

I don't think psychedelics can really give hallucinations to have degree, unfortunately.

Funny. And harmless.
So much better than all those stupid challenges kids are killing themselves over these days.

So the Chinese have apparently been caught sticking chips onto motherboard manufactured in China for western companies. Apple and Amazon are denying it, but the US government isn't commenting. Bloomberg claims an extensive investigation shows China pressured Chinese manufacturers to install a tiny, barely visible chip on motherboards destined for the servers being assembled for a US company. They've apparently developed chips so tiny they can slip them between the layers of the fiberglass motherboard itself, rather than sitting on top. And since most computers are built in China, or at least assembled there that would sure as hell give them a lot of leeway to spy on anyone who purchases them.

Coincidental, or maybe not, to this, the Defense Department is trying to figure out how much of the new Arctic Patrol ships have gear sourced to China. Just because you're dealing with a US or Canadian company doesn't mean they don't build or assemble parts in China.

Yes, that is entirely possible. The problem is they still need to be wired into the circuits and that would be extremely difficult.

I'm finding it hard to understand how this would work.  The operating system wouldn't see those processors though ?  I don't get it.

The irony... not to mention the blissful ignorance.

They hook in below the OS and potentially access devices directly but it is hard to see how they could do anything useful without exploits built into the firmware of the motherboard. This may be something like the heartbleed attack where 99.9999999% of the potentially collected data is useless just but once in a while they find something potentially useful.

Shootings, bombings, arson at abortion clinics: "an isolated incident; a lunatic who is not representative of the pro-life movement."

Assault committed against pro-life demonstrator:  "typical of the intolerant left."

How many shootings, bombings or arsons have we seen against abortion clinics in Canada? Have there even been ANY?

I didn't say it was typical of the intolerant left. I thought it was amusingly ironic to see a guy talking about how he supports womens rights attacking women for having an opinion contrary to his.

May 1992: Morgentaler's Toronto clinic is firebombed.

November 1994: Dr. Garson Romalis is the first Canadian doctor shot for performing abortions. He's hit by a sniper while eating breakfast in his Vancouver home. Two similar shootings follow in 1995 and 1997, first in Ontario, then Manitoba. None of the attacks is fatal.

Think of the irony happening here.
