I did a Google image search for 'winged Logos' as I'm trying to design a tattoo and I want to avoid it being mistaken for something else ... that was 3 days ago... my header on multiple sites in another Browser is now full of ads for Shutterstock and filled with winged images.

If you want your skin to be a truly unique work of designer art, don't pay a guy a bunch of money to scribble permanent ink on it :) I know what you're saying with the ads though... creepy...

It's not about 'designer art'... that's why I'm trying to design my own idea rather that getting something off the Parlor Wall or their Book of previous works... I looked up 'wings' because the rough sketch I'd done by hand skewed too close to the Van Halen "-VH-" logo

I once got one off the parlor wall. I dont recommend it. Unless they put original art on their wall. The one i'm talking about is not original art.

As far as civil liberties go you can find many examples if you look at law enforcement search and seizures. One that stands out was a couple of guys who were professional gamblers driving to Vegas. Stopped for a minor driving infraction, the cops called in a canine unit who got a hit on their trunk. Well they had thousands of dollars, which makes sense. Two pistols, which makes sense. But the cops grabbed their shit anyway and now they're battling it out in court. Stupid.

I am utterly baffled at the breakneck speed people are willing bring these machines into the homes. It literally sits there and listens to you all day and aggregates what your saying into usable data. It's a complete and total surrender of privacy in the most sacred place a person has, their home. Plus its just downright creepy.

It seems that way. A new device becomes available and people have to have it. With no regards of what they're giving up. I wonder about the new voice activated remote from cable providers. If you don't activate it, is it still listening?

They are always listening...My mom was at her Bridge club a few weeks ago and the women hosting that week has one. The ladies got on topic of Tony Bennett, later when the women asked Alexia for some music suggestions, guess what was the number one suggestion, Tony Bennett. Always listening

Yeah. Not just freedom of speech, but being monitored on your phone, Internet, even on any major highway. There's cameras on towers and just about every underpass.

Freedom of speech pertaining to everyone. If you say the wrong thing you're labeled something derogatory.

Yeah. And all social media is under the disguise of keeping connected to your friends. Back in the 70's and 80's law enforcement was looking at suspects library cards to see what they were interested in. Kinda old school, but the internet wasn't around yet.

They were doing the library card thing through at least the 90's. Remember the movie "Se7en?" They talk about that, briefly.

Well, of course. Any corporation wants to sell you stuff. But any public or private entity who sees an opportunity to sell you more by knowing your buying habits will take the opportunity and use it to their advantage. Sometimes it's legal, sometimes not. When a government uses that opportunity, we have spying.
