The China firewall is extreme.

@rfjardim yessss that zelda watch was my jam
A little girl at work asked me if I wanted to know what her favorite #dinosaur was... I squatted down to her eye level (I'm 6'4" and she's a 5 year old) and said "I want all of you kids to listen to me carefully, I don't care what I'm doing or how old I am, I will ALWAYS want to know what somebodies favorite dinosaur is."
The more into #OSINT I get, the more pissed off I am about what's done with my information that I wasn't told about.
Just today, I found my voter profile that has my full name, age, full home address, my political party (unaffiliated), race, gender, registration date, neighbours, as well as all that same information on my relatives.
I am livid. This information should NOT be public where anyone can just search for it.

@erikstl yes please!
