Artist/Astronomer Exhibits Photos Of Spy Satellites

uab21 Re:Censorship? (173 comments)

I believe it was tagged "censorship", not because this exhibit is being censored, but because the existence of the satellites themselves is denied. He is lifting the 'veil of censorship' to show that, yes they do. The government is not yanking his photos, but they are replying "I don't know what you are talking about" when asked about the subject of each picture.

A man managed to alter a standalone ATM at a gas station convenience store to disburse more money than was debited against his pre-paid debit card. The alteration wasn't noticed for nine days, when an honest patron notified the clerk about the error."
