This was originally posted on as a response to an article about Google and privacy...

OH PLEASE! Where in the entire universe did anyone believe that there was such a thing as privacy? Huh?

Why are we continuing this charade of believing that anything posted anywhere in the Electronic Kingdom is sacred? THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS PRIVACY! Get over it and get on with your public lives! You INSIST on giving away the most intimate details of your life and then turn around and expect some sort of privacy? Get a grip!

Meet Joe and Jane Average

Walmart can describe Jane almost to the centimeter. Bra size, panty size, hose preference, dress size, shoe size. And then her personal habits. Deoderant, bady wash, perfume, eyeshadow, lip gloss, hair color (Jane is trying to cover that grey.) And she appears to be concerned with her "bikini lines" because she recently bought the latest trimmer.

Joe average is just that, average. Except Walmart knows the size of his penis by the condoms he buys (Magnums - Joe is pretty well hung.) Walmart can guestimate fairly accurately how often Joe is getting some... buys a 12 pack once every 6 weeks.

What Joe doesn't know and Walmart (and Jane) does know is the size of Jane's lover's penis. Seems she's buying a 3 pack every other week. Has been for almost two years.

We GIVE away the most intimate (secret) details of our lives and then have some expectation of privacy? Duh!!!!
