I was watching this episode recently (which is part 2 of a 2 parter) and was getting visions of DHS, TSA, NSA, etc... And then about minute 26 there's this:
SISKO: A lot of them. Daneeka, McWatt, Snowden, Orr, Moodus. All of them were officers on the Okinawa when I was Leyton's XO. As far as I can tell, every officer on this list served under Leyton at one time or another.
So is Snowden that common of a name? What are the odds that that particular name is used in an episode about terrorism, espionage, and intrigue? And about government agencies invading the privacy of its populace to make them feel secure?" Link to Original Source

I don't know if I want to accept the terms of service. It's pages long and contains links to other terms of service. Kind of a recursive TOS.
What are Android users on/. doing? Are you accepting or refusing and why? Is there another market so I can bypass Google?" Link to Original Source
