Microchipping dogs

By 2016 all dogs in England need to be chipped by law. Will our grand kids be microchipped too? I can hear the arguments for chipping all people, your medical history could be on it, etc.

My dog is chipped. It really makes sense since we travel thoughout the country with him.

When chipping becomes manditory for people, maybe the overdue revolution will start.

Reminds me of the movie Logans Run.

Ok, maybe, and hmmm. And you point re dogs, grand kids and medical records?

Had a very lovely and well bred Lhasa once. He was tattooed. Stolen twice - recovered once. A chip would have been nice assuming no side effects. It was heart breaking losing him.

Kids are nabbed all the time - medical records at the VA aren't even auto linked between hospitals - never mind private hospitals. Not sure why this is all bad but sure I'll be educated shortly. I'd volunteer for some, if not all. Probably would not like to be forced into 1984 in 2013 and beyond, but don't want any buggy whips either. Perplexed, but not confused. I get both sides - at least so far....

Tin foil hats

I read somewhere that rather than stoping RF energy the tin foil hat actually acts as an antenna, thus the wearer gets even more.

We're a long way off from having everyone's medical records in a chip. RFID chips are actually pretty simple. When powered up by the scanners magnetic oscillations the chip transmits an ID Number. That's all they use in dogs anyway.

But how far have we come with that? There is a company in Morgan Hill, Ca that manufactures 'smart dust'. Each speck of dust is an RFID device. Here's the kicker - that company is 'Alien Technology'. 'They' are already here.

Both of our Goldens are chipped. They didn't seem to even notice the chip going in. Our vet scans every dog and if a stolen dog came in they'd know it.

I would be the first in line to have my medical records "chipped." Go to the same docotor for years. They want to "update" my records. Fair enough, but why do you ask for my name and SS # on BOTH sides of the same piece of paper. Pet peeve. I enter: "See other side."

Also, my dogs complete medical records are on a nationwide computer system withh Banfield Vets. All thier info, including the lastest test results, are available with the press of a key, anwhere in the country.

Me? of course not. At the doctors I have to fill out a long and complicated form, by hand!!

Rant over.

The RFID chips are harmless in terms of side effects. However, With pets, the ability of any vet to scan the pet and find out who it was pet-napped from can be very nice. That is, after all, the original reason for registration of cars, Cut way down on auto theft. It is why several pieces of electroincs carry my callsign, Easy to track, any ham can do it. So can most cops. (And yes I have a funny story about that having been a dispatcher, though I do admit a few people were not amused, I call them convicts).

But when it comes to chipping people.......

I see all sorts of constitutional hollering and screaming and so on.. And I am not entirely sure I'd not be one of the screamers.

Actually, it's not all that far away now that medical records have to be digitized. All an RFID would need to do is have your ID on it. That could be used to connect to a national database that would have links to doctors offices etc. that would have your records. Eventually, all your records themselves will be in a national database that can be accessed by authorized personnel from just your ID.
