    Dead drops, anonymous offline, peer to peer file sharing network in public space

    It's like an information glory hole, first I have heard of this:

    I was so curious I just spent 3 hours going from store to store trying to find a damn USB OTG adapter so I could access the closest one with my phone and report back what I found. Could not believe a single store didn't have it. Should have just tried Radio Shack first but everything is closed now.

    Anyway, I'm going to put one in my city. Bought a few 4 gb sticks for cheap.

    I think it is the best way ever to get a computervirus, spyware, rootkit infection.
    I would not trust such a device at all.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    Well it's no different than opening files you don't know on the internet. You don't just download anything right?

    If browsing these files on a device like a cell phone with a non-windows OS you are likely pretty safe. I'm going to go check the one out that is closest to me Click here to enlarge

    is there a database that locates where all the dead drops are?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    This is pretty cool.

    How long before someone calls the cops because they see a "terrorist" with a computer standing next to a wall in NYC? Some of them are relatively inconspicuous, but some aren't. I suppose as long as only white people use them, everything will be fine.

    I think its pretty cool, but it will get stupid real fast. All the new 'up and coming' music artists that make $#@! music and are gonna try to spread their pathetic attempts at making noise are gonna fill up all these USB sticks just like they filled up myspace with their horrific sounding $#@!.

    This would actually take artists who need to put in more effort than getting high and clicking a mouse button.
