There are lots of very smart people doing fascinating work on cryptographic voting protocols. We should be funding and encouraging them, and doing all our elections with paper ballots until everyone currently working in that field has retired.

Amen!! Paper... paper... paper. It's simple. It's trivial to recount. Everyone already knows how to use it. It's cheap. It's verifiable. Just... use... paper.

It *is* a monster. Quick, somebody kill it before it convinces a bunch of people that its ludicrous conspiracy theory is plausible.

I say Frankenstein is short for Frankenstein-class Electric Flesh Golem so it's legit.

I tend to think that insisting Frankenstein isn't the monster's name is committing exactly the same sin as Victor did by not acknowledging his familial responsibility for the life he'd created. Victor Frankenstein is the dad. Adam Frankenstein is the son. (It's not in the book, but Shelley referred to the creature as 'Adam' when talking about the book)

The monster took Frankenstein as his name in the book, IIRC...
