    You just know that:

    The Pentecostal 19 year old NSA hackers and their
    Evangelical bosses who don't like the analytics of atheistic residents lifestyle's will use the North Carolinians as transparent laboratory mice for their goals and future endeavors.

    •  Everyone is a tool, to the NSA, it seems (7+ / 0-)

      They are caught in the addiction of obtaining more and more information, however worthless the immediate endeavour.  It's a true problem, these emotionally unfit people with big, black box budgets and black programs, to match.

        EXCERPT

        With a new batch of Snowden documents being revealed by Der Spiegel, mostly concerning the NSA's operations in Germany, Andrea Peterson over at The Switch, noticed one only moderately terrifying tidbit in one of the documents: the NSA appears to have taken a lesson from the whole "gamification" movement and used it to help the NSA better spy on people.

        You know all about "gamification" of course. The idea of adding "points" of some sort to just about everything, just to tap into people's competitive spirit so they have something to compare. Sometimes it includes things like being able to "level up" and unlocking features. The document in question is a document about some NSA training on the XKeyscore system, which, you'll recall, allows NSA analysts to pull up all sorts of info on people.
