Seriously, they try to grasp at the smallest things.

If I lock my porn in a 40 ft thick steel safe, does that mean I have to give 
uncle sam a key if they ask?

US Government restrictions (and a few other anal countries out there), are 
getting silly. When the law is being made by people who don't understand the 
problem, people who don't understand the benefits, and people who have no clue 
what they are making the laws for, then we have a serious issue on our hands 
and it's time we start thinking about getting some knowledgable people into 

Makes you just want to move to Mars and start all over doesn't it?
