Barcodes for Bodies

OK Big Brother fans... seems that the UC system can't hold on to bodies willed to them for science, so they are going to start barcoding them...

http://www.cnn.com/2005/EDUCATION/02....ap/index.html

How long until they jump start the process and start putting them on everyone? I feel like I should go watch GATTACA now.

Re: Barcodes for Bodies

I don't see the problem...once your dead, your body is just property. If you gave it to a school, why shouldnt it be labled for inventory purposes like the fax machine or a microscope?

Re: Barcodes for Bodies

It's the precedent it sets. Who is to say that it worked so well for tracking dead bodies that maybe it should be used when you are admitted to a hospital... just hear the insurance companies now...

"Well Mr. G-Force, if you choose to get the barcode, it will reduce the chances of a patient mishap by X percent, so we will drop your premium... or you can choose NOT to get the barcode, but we will have to charge you the ass-rape premium"

Re: Barcodes for Bodies

The main difference between barcodes and RFID tags (the kind that are injected sub-q) is that RFID tags can be read without your knowledge and from a distance. Barcodes at least would have to be exposed and entail the use of a scanner fairly close (a foot or so).

Re: Barcodes for Bodies

That precedent is already in place with the illegal use of everyones social security number. I'm on your side, FOR LIVING PEOPLE, but dead...your just inventory.

Re: Barcodes for Bodies

This coming from a dude with meat tags.

NDD, you won't find many people on this site interested in privacy. Very few even replied to my posts about the DNA collection of people arrested, but before conviction, of felony crimes in CA. And those that did reply, couldn't understand why I was upset.

Must be a familial thing.

Yeah, the guys over at the aprilia forum pointed the meat tag thing out too... but in my case it was voluntary, and the chances were pretty high they might have been needed

As far as the DNA collection thing, don't even get me started on that... I can'e believe that even made it on to the ballot!

I think if they were going to do this the chip would work better. With a decomposing body the tattoo could be removed very easy with what we call skin slip. The only thing is removing the chip before cremation if they are similar to a pace maker it could damage your retort. Cremation is what happens to most of the bodies we get at school most of them have been dead for a 1 to 6 months no one claims the remains. Sad

Don't drive a hearse in the carpool lane.
