Money Talks

The Federation of American Scientist reports in a summary about Technology Collection Trends in the U.S. Defense Industry that spies have been embedding tiny transmitters in Canadian coins:

'On at least three separate occasions between October 2005 and January 2006, cleared defense contractors’ employees traveling through Canada have discovered radio frequency transmitters embedded in Canadian coins placed on their persons.' (p. 32)

See, that's what technological progress is good for.

Thanks to Kerstin for the interesting info.


  1. All US paper money should be bar-coded and scanned whenever it changes hands. What good is having the largest most abusive prison system in the history of the world if it cannot be overloaded, rationalizing expenditures for even larger prisons?

    We cannot allow ourselves to be diverted by common criminals raping, killing, stealing. They will be adequate trustees to oversee the real threat to Amerika - political prisoners who do not think the right thoughts or cast the right votes.

  2. Wow! This is amazing. And kind of scary.
