Just wait until someone clones YOUR chip and starts robbing banks!!!
There are credit and debit cards equipped with RFID chips that only broadcast the signal a short distance but they have been shown to be hackable.
This would make mugging someone not only easier and without violence but almost impossible to trace because until you went to make another purchase or do something with your chip you would have no idea that your accounts have been emptied or your records copied.

i don't really see the problem.
'chipping' humans has far more pro's than con's i think.
i can't think of any negative aspects to this.

Wow!! I couldn't believe it! Did they tell you about the negatives to it? He seemed confused but after a 20 minute long conversation with mom he was well aware of its seriousness and implications. It made me sick to stomach that they are already beginning to introduce these ideas in our public school system.
