The iPod in the toilet guy posts on the WoW forum:


I waited in total silence for about 10 minutes as he kept searching and searching, until I finally asked him, "What are you looking for?"

"Contraband," he said without looking up at me.
"Such as?"
"Child pornography, hate propaganda."
"Child porn I can understand, that's illegal. But hate propaganda is protected speech."
Now he looked up. "What country do you think you're in?"
"Oh, it's illegal in Canada?"
"I honestly don't know. But that doesn't matter. I get to decide what goes in this country. Do you have a problem with that?"
I paused for a long time while I thought about what I should say to this. "Yes."
"Yes, you do have a problem?"
"Yes, I do. If it's illegal in Canada I'll understand, but saying 'I don't want it in my country' isn't good enough when you're a government official."

Now he was pissed. "Don't fool around with me. I'm sure you want this to end as much as I do. So I will ask you questions, and you will answer. Do you understand?"

That whole story is a good read. Stupid people in positions that are labeled as 'important' but are 99% of the time just a nuisance.

Hate propoganda is, in fact, illegal in Canada. (And frankly, that official was a dumbass for not knowing that. Any customs agent should know that.)

Its comforting that he wasn't just making stuff up. I could see where they had training in the laws, but weren't expressly told that they were laws. (Not that I think he's any less of a dumbass, mind you).
