Irony: 1984 - 2007

Irony is dead.

The UK killed it: there are 28 CCTV cameras within 200 yards of George Orwell's house.

I was watching a British SciFi show called "Torchwood" (don't bother, it's truly awful) and noted that they used CCTVs in the episodes to trace peoples' movements. I thought to myself, "That's goofy. There's no way any place has that many cameras." I should have known politics would force me once again into realizing that sometimes I am not pessimistic enough.

Tip o' the tin foil hat to Boing Boing.
