And lots of it. Simultaneously, North Face Brazil should have their exclusive license revoked, and Leo Burnett should lose the whole North Face account worldwide. Fuck those glib shits.

Computer people talk. Hackers brag. Phonephreaks talk pathologically — why else are they stealing phone-codes, if not to natter for ten hours straight to their friends on an opposite seaboard? Computer-literate people do in fact possess an arsenal of nifty gadgets and techniques that would allow them to conceal all kinds of exotic skullduggery, and if they could only shut up about it, they could probably get away with all manner of amazing information-crimes.
