I'm tagging this under so many things, because this is good to know from both an offensive and a defensive perspective. Note that you can use this to escape in hostile territory, but it can be used against you, for example if you are a guard at a military base.

The Man Who Spent $100K To Remove A Lie From Google : NPR
A turkish kid tries to pull a scam on a financial advisor in the US. The financial advisor catches on and reports him to the police. Turkish kid and his family are arrested and deported back to Turkey. Turkish kid sets up a website defaming the financial advisor. Google refuses to do anything about it even after a court order. Eventually, the guy has to spend $100,000 in overseas courts to have European privacy laws apply and the page is eventually taken down. Turkish kid is still an asshole.

"The Postal Service said it is not possible for an address occupant to receive emailed, scanned images of incoming mail at more than one email address. In other words, if you wish to prevent others from signing up in your name or in the name of any other adults at the address, the surest way to do that may be to register your own account and then urge all other adult residents at the address to create their own accounts."

Ladies, how can you tell when you are in a changing room, restroom, motel etc., whether it’s a mirror or 2-way glass? - Wise Diaries
Put your fingernail up to the mirror. If there is ‘NO SPACE, LEAVE THE PLACE’ (if there's no space between your fingernail and the reflected image of your fingernail, it's a two way mirror, meaning a person or a camera is on the other side.

Hacker Group Claims to Have Romney's Tax Returns
This is the thought I've had more and more lately: the reason most of us are safe and secure isn't because we're ready to defend ourselves. It's because most people are not out to get us. I mean this in both a self-defense/mugging sense as well as (like in this article) a "no one has burglarized my house" sense. Most houses are incredibly insecure and only haven't been burglarized because no one has tried to.

It's important to protect your important things (and everything is important) in a way that will actually keep them secure and not just in a "Everyone else does it this way, so I can't be blamed if something goes wrong" way.
