Microsoft .WORLD Development Proceeding On Schedule

So Bill Gates is donating another gazillion dollars to immunize poor kids. Given what we already know about Microsoft, the question you have to ask now is "What will they be immunizing them with?"

My favorite quotes from the linked conspiracy page:
These beacons may, for example, provide rudimentary data, such as age, heart rate, blood pressure, or speed. They may also provide more detailed information, such as what we are saying at any given time.
The flu vaccination has provided a perfect way for the government to implant updated beacon devices, particularly for those individuals who recieved vaccinations fourty or more years ago, whose beacons may not have had the benefit of various technological advances.

40 years ago? 40 years ago, most computers were no smaller than my desk, and many were as large as my cubicle. Even if they were analog devices, think of how large the average army radio was in 1965. No, not the walkie-talkies -- the satellite communications units. How would it have been possible back then to to make one small enough to fit through a hypodermic needle (and not kill you in any number of horribly painful ways).

Let's ask ourselves how these devices are supposed to determine our age? speed? (or did they mean blood speed?)

I'm all in favor of fun conspiracy theories, but let's at least make them plausible.

As for M$, well, they have had a super-secret research and development lab for many years. Who's to say they aren't the first to develop practical nanotechnology? But, if that's the case, why waste it on countries that are unlikely to buy (or even be able to buy) M$ products in the forseeable future?

Because They know that's the last place We'll look!

Hmmm, the one way M$ might be able to handle a virus...
