  if you're worried about the black helicopters,
 look in shop windows, car mirrors, swing a glass door out
 into the shop or into the street, and look up or backwards.

 ... then again, you _could_ just stop doing whatever it
 was that brought you to the attention of the people _in_
 the black helicopters.

 and for the record, the black helicopters are _not_
 what you need to concern yourself with the most: there's
 far more scary shit [if you're someone that has something
 to hide and be scared _about_!] out there than black

 dang :)

i doubt that it would [it was a hypothetical scenario] because:
it's probably disabled by default and you probably have to download
and install it yourself, instead of being installed by every single
linux vendor and enabled by default.
