    I could tell you, but if you asked me to substantiate my assertion, I'd have to kill you...and ummm, everyone else on the forum, err...I mean, the internet!

    NSA obviously since you didn't even think to put them on your list. They do a damn good job staying out of the media. I don't even want to know what the NSA is capable of, it would be way too frightening.

    Get this, the NSA's budget for electricity alone is $31 million dollars making it the 2nd largest consumer of electricity in MD. It also employs the most mathematicians and also has the most supercomputers in the world. Its existence was not even acknowleged by the US govt. for years.

    Yes, it is a kitten with a sniper rifle, but that doesn't matter right now. What should be bothering you is WHY the kitten has the sniper rifle.

    He shouldn't be wondering why the kitten has a sniper rifle.

    He should be wondering who it's pointed at.

    Heh. Heh. Heh.

    Not who, what. If I remember correctly, it had to do with bluejays in the family apple orchard. Or something like that.
