The bright side of letting Google track your every move.


Does it account for when a subway car is empty because somebody shat on the ground or something? If NYC has taught me one thing, it’s never to take an empty subway car at face value.


Which means Google is tracking all of the people in those subway cars… Why people aren’t outraged about that is mind boggling.


Why couldn’t we have this before just to avoid being sandwiched between bones guy and huge sweaty guy??!!


Certainly, this has no bad uses, none at all, not one.
