re: If we cover the desert in solar panels, what happens to all the reflected sunlight? - philter on 6/21/17 at 1:13 pm

Foreign governments have been trying to influence our elections for a couple hundred years - and we've done the same in dozen...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

If the Wiki info is correct, there isn't much you can do short of stop using technology to mitigate your exposure (and I mean no phones, no atm, and in some cases no vehicle or TV). 0 day exploits are unstoppable until patched, and Wiki said they were hoarding them for nearly every OS.
