I know that John knows this story, but others may not.

A few years ago, the Pentagon proudly announced that it would put RFID chips into every item in its inventory chain. No more stores shrinkage! Everything uniquely tracked everywhere!

Then some cruel person came along and said "Hey, great! Now I can build cheap landmines that only blow up under American soldiers."

The idea got quietly shelved.
