    If they were just storing metadata as claimed, it would fit in one Home Depot type plastic bin full of hard drives or a shoebox full of SD cards.

      It's INSANE to even contemplate! This is SCIENCE FICTION and you're NUTS! My daughter's phone calls last month alone couldn't fit on a single hard drive!

      Yes, these are actual things I was told by "people" when the Snowden story first broke. I no longer hear from or see these people here much.

      Gee, wonder why. I guess their gig ran out.
