not for an employer. That's so pathetic.

I think the day will come when we all get a chip at birth.

Right now most of us treat a phone like it's a body part, can't leave home without it. So we're just carrying our tracking devices along with us. Some things about the universal chip are creepy. On the other hand, people who have a loved one who is a missing person would probably like to have had it.
And most of us already have a huge paper trail since birth.

I think it'll be like every other innovation, both are very good and very bad.

If you read this, you'll see it's voluntary, for the convenience of the employee. That said, I don't think I would want it.

If you get lost and end up in the pound, they can find your owner instead of euthanizing you.

I know you are a dog. Aren't you MR. PEABODY, the SCIENTIST/PROFESSOR (dog) from the ROCKY & BULLWINKLE television program? :taz:

I reckon it will be the "in" thing eventually, until medical results show that human bodies are developing cancer at the sites, or the body shows rejection and gangrene/sepsis occurs.

The human body doesn't adapt as fast as technology changes.
