Bomb

For the illustration I think a classic anarchist's black sphere with a lit fuse.

Alternatives would be

1) a bundle of dynamite with a timer (though this perhaps not child friendly).

2) a finned bomb as dropped by the airforce on waiting civilians below - could be confused with a rocket, but prob OK if pointing in a downwards direction.

Someone chanced upon this site a few days ago by Googling "bomb anarchist fuse sphere". I wondered how far up the listings we come with this combination, so did the search myself: www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=bomb+anarchist+fuse+sphere *

The next day my phone (briefly) developed an uncharacteristic echo. A big wave to Big Brother!

* If you come across some links to the notorious "Anarchist Cookbook". I suggest don't follow the recipes, especially as I've heard, according to one interested chemist, that some are reposts of a version 'reformulated' by the CIA to ensure that curious cookery students don't make it out of the kitchen.

Thanks to The Lawyer for pointing this out: for a lovely short story/autobiography explaining "why you shouldn't 'play with matches' (ahem)" see www.everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=1674167

It happened again. After revamping the site this week I clicked again on the Google link above, "bomb anarchist fuse sphere". A day or two later a client commented on the wierd echo on my phone (just as before, I didn't hear it but the caller did). In the intervening nine months this has never happened. SO:

  1. Is it
    a) just a coincidence
    or
    b) does Google pass on search terms, with IP addresses, to the security forces?**

If your answer to question 1. was (b) then please answer the following questions:

  1. Are the search terms picked up related only to possible terrorist activities, or are other illegal or suspect activities monitored as well (and if so, which)?
  2. Is it a simple matter for the security forces to obtain your phone number (and therefore other details) from your IP address?
  3. Are phone taps in widespread use in the UK?
  4. Who spends their days listening to dull conversations about websites between me and my clients?
  5. Why do they do this on shoddy equipment that introduces an echo?

** Google keeps a log of all searches and the IP addresses of the people who made them. From Spring 2007 these logs will be made anonymous after 'only' 18-24 months - so anything you Googled over the past year and a half can still be dredged up by an interested authority. Yahoo and Microsoft also keep records of your searches and IP address.
