01/03/2005 Archived Entry: "Tsunami victims being microchipped"
THAILAND, WHICH ALREADY HAS THE MOST INVASIVE NATIONAL ID SYSTEM IN THE WORLD, is now microchipping bodies of tsunami victims. Well, the dead don't care. But no doubt the difficulties of indentifying victims throughout the tsunami zone (many of whom were European or American tourists) will boost the hopes and the stock price of Applied Digital Solutions. Our Favorite Little Brother company is reportedly using this disaster to promote itself to the governments in the disaster region and increase so-far sluggish sales of human-implantable VeriChips. Easier to ID several thousand dead if you chip five or six billion of the living. For their own good, of course.
