Just shock the hell out of it. Or take an electromagnet and fry the RFID chip inside.
Then say, "Who me? I don't know what went wrong."
That was the first thing that I considered... I wonder if there's any way for them to detect whether or not a chipped passport has been nuked,
because if they find out that you have nuked your PP, you're actually damaging government property and are liable for penalties.
In response to Skittle's post: In Melbourne, where I live, more and more companies are expecting you to provide ID for 'security purposes'. The
pool hall where I play, asks you to leave your licence at the counter... I've been considering asking the manager if I could leave something else
there as security, because I don't want to hand over my ID to anybody. (Besides the fact that I shouldn't need to identify myself with the
corporation that has a name exactly the same as mine, but in upper-case, just so I can play billiards ffs).
EDIT to avoid double-post: The first reason that I don't want an RFID passport is because I never voted for one, and I believe that it is a grose
violation of my civil liberties to be FORCED to have one in order to travel overseas. The second reason I don't want an RFID passport, is because
they are easier to hack than a mainframe using a commodore 64 as a firewall. I don't want the identity of my corporation stolen, because then I'll
have to explain away the liability for whatever happens on it's behalf. (ie. if someone takes 'my' identity and sells it to someone who screws
around with it, I have to fix it) The third reason is that if we stop the RFID scam NOW, it's going to delay the inevitable step in the totalitarian
tiptoe (which is a micro-chipped population).
