It kind of happened in slow motion. The secretary in a rush running downrepparttar corridor towards me,carrying some goodies forrepparttar 133402 forthcoming meeting. About 3 metres away what does she do? She trips. You know when your in an accident and things happen in slow motion.... Well,repparttar 133403 jam and cream cake catches my right shoulder,repparttar 133404 coffee literally goes all overrepparttar 133405 walls and showers me onrepparttar 133406 rebound. I catch a jam donut in my groin beforerepparttar 133407 secretary careers into me and bowls me over. I hear a loud ripping noise as I hitrepparttar 133408 ground with her sprawled on top of me. When I look up there are two people staring down on us. One is my boss.

I get cleaned up and finally arrive atrepparttar 133409 meeting. As I walk to my place two ofrepparttar 133410 women present giggle just as I feelrepparttar 133411 wind up my ass. Yeah. I've ripped my pants inrepparttar 133412 fall.

The rest ofrepparttar 133413 day is equally as much of a bummer. The Sony projector packs up,repparttar 133414 presentation ends early. It is raining cats and dogs when I leaverepparttar 133415 office and I get soaked. When I arrive home my wife says 'How was your day?'

What more can you do with it?

The VeriChip can be used for many applications than just verifying medical records. In this fast changing world everything is technology enhanced, and places that spell technology also invite unethical and illegal activities such as counterfeiting, identity theft, unauthorized access, etc. The VeriChip can be used for personal identity verification sorepparttar chip could contain your biometric information andrepparttar 133401 scanners would read your chip and grant access to a special area that only you are supposed to access. Other applications could include but are not limited to controlling access to Intellectual Property, managing and tracking physical and intellectual assets, providing physical access to control solutions, enabling innovative time and attendance systems, providing automated data collection and monitoring platforms and much more. The chip with GPS (Global Positioning System) capabilities could also be implanted into children, so that it becomes easier forrepparttar 133402 Police Department to trace them out, in events of kidnapping.

VeriChip could also be used to find lost pets or keep track of endangered wildlife, as well as find lost or stolen property. It could also be used as a means for security such as, airport security, authorization for access to government buildings, laboratories, correctional facilities andrepparttar 133403 like. Convicted criminals or possible terrorists could also be tracked with this technology and prevent future attacks on time.

Is anything wrong with it?

While VeriChip seems to have no adverse side effects to its wearer, there are quite a few concerns over its usage pattern. One ofrepparttar 133404 biggest disadvantages isrepparttar 133405 invasion of privacy ofrepparttar 133406 user. People wouldnt really like scanners scanning them for personal information wherever they go or satellites tracking them acrossrepparttar 133407 globe. One ofrepparttar 133408 major concerns could be about third parties gaining information onrepparttar 133409 Internet through either hacking or by selling sensitive data to unknown people. You might use these chips to safeguard your children from kidnappers, but there are possibilities of these chips being surgically removed and being disabled by kidnappers. There is alsorepparttar 133410 possibilitiy that convicted criminals could removerepparttar 133411 chips so authorities would be unable to track them. Most people fear an invasion of privacy asrepparttar 133412 greatest fault of implanting microchips. A recent CNN poll said that about 76% of Americans said they would not want a device like VeriChip implanted on their children, while 24% suggested they would.

Whilerepparttar 133413 amount of securities this chip might offer is overwhelming, atrepparttar 133414 same timerepparttar 133415 device seems weighed down by numerous concerns including invasion of privacy. Only time will tell whether this invention takes off or just bitesrepparttar 133416 dust.
