How to solve the problem of NSA surveillance

Illustration for article titled How to solve the problem of NSA surveillance

Leave it to the folks at Abstruse Goose to deliver one of the most tragicomically honest observations on the current state of NSA surveillance.


Sad but true. I especially appreciate Ann Finkbeiner's commentary on this comic over at Last Word on Nothing, especially the bit I've emphasized, which is pretty amazing/unsettling:

I'm pretty sure if the NSA put their massive minds to it, they could figure out how to hear us thinking, let alone typity-typing on our computers without an internet in sight. Did you know that NSA is the country's largest employer of mathematicians? It is. Respect their powers.

Sleep soundly, everybody!
