  •  Tor is sorta cool (4.00)
    Tor is a peer to peer network.  Its a kind of anonymizer that works by forwarding all your packets, requests and other, to other computers before eventually the destination.  Each time a packet is sent it takes a different route, so there is no way for a host you are requesting from can know where you are or who you are.  It has been said that someone with enough access to routers could figure it out though, like Karl Rove.. I mean the NSA maybe.  You can also host sites using Tor, so that noone knows where you are hosting from.  It feels like surfing a secret internet.  Tor is not the easiest thing in the world for a non-techie to set up, even for a techie, and it and applications around it are still in somewhat of a beta stage.  

    Most people are idiots... But don't tell them. It'll spoil all the fun for those of us who aren't.
