I heard they are test marketing thumb scans out west at some Walmarts and also indocrinating school children to the concept, by thumb scanning for library books and lunch tickets. This supposedly for the eventuality of a cashless society. Every purchase would require a thumb scan instead of your checkbook, credit card, or greenback dollars. What gives with that? No garage sales? Maybe you can rent a scanning machine for a day for the garage sale. Why did you buy those rifle shells in July? Bob has a car accident at 10:15, the insurance man punches into "Hal" to look at Bob's recent scans. Whoa nelly, Bob scanned for 7 beers between 9:00 and 10:00. Is that where we're going?
