How I Stalked My Girlfriend

"For the past week I've been tracking my girlfriend through her mobile phone. I can see exactly where she is, at any time of day or night, within 150 yards, as long as her phone is on. It has been very interesting to find out about her day. Now I'm going to tell you how I did it."

Death By Curry

"Some would like to go quietly in their sleep while others would prefer to 'kick the bucket' while making love. My own personal preference though would have to be 'Death By Curry'. To find a curry so hot and so mean that it would render me lifeless on the spot. "

OK, hunt the "ring stingers." Oh, and tell the wife to put the Andrex in the fridge. For non-brits, the title of the site is "rubymurray.com," which is rhyming slang for curry. A conversation while leaving pubs often consists of the immortal words "who's up for a Ruby, then?"

To defend yourself against such measures, you might want a small, simple and relatively appealing gadget to permanently deactivate RFID-Tags around you, e.g., to deactivate RFID-Tags in recently bought clothes or books without damaging those. "
