That's incredible. The Guild of Evil is funding this, right?

This is why I only eat 1980's crisps like Space Raiders, Eenie Meenies, and Farmer Browns.

Good luck trying to monitor my secret conversations over the sound of a Thompson Twins LP while the 14 inch portable blares the theme tune to Blockbusters.

Surely the possession of a Thompson Twins LP would put you on some kind of watch list?

David - Say what you will about the Thompson Twins, but you can't deny the ginger guy had great hair.

I tried getting my hair to look like that once but after a whole tub of gel it ended up looking like the lead singer from A Flock Of Seagulls had been attacked by a flock of seagulls.

Looking at that photo of the Thompson Twins though, I'm starting to think I've been had and they weren't really twins after all.

If you play the crisp bag vibrations backwards do they say "it's fun to smoke marijuana"?

Laser microphones have been around for a while, and use the same techniques, focussing on a picture in the room, or even the window itself, but this is interesting as it just uses a normal-ish camera.

Moral of the story: to prevent the CIA from listening in on your conversations, do NOT — I repeat NOT — coat the windows with aluminum foil. That stuff will transmit your voice just as readily as the transistors in your molars.

Steve's right: the Thompson Twins are our only salvation.

Also, I was gratified to see that the tune was identified as "Under Pressure" rather than "Ice, Ice, Baby." Turns out there's some sanity left in the world after all.

I always pull the drapes and put on a recording of Mayhem's "Chainsaw Gutsfuck" just to be annoying.

Oh, That. Was. Funny.

They didn't just do the research, They did the research . . . .

Surreptitious Evil

Been known for years. The kit's not difficult to make but it requires phase sensitivity in the reflection. Hence it usually uses lasers.

Mojo has it, though. Just pull the curtains.
