Letting Amazon record your comings and goings

from here and here (image source one, two, and three)

Letting a Ring camera fly around inside your home is pretty invasive, much more so than just having a camera at your front door, and it makes one wonder what's next?

(I know the last image isn't actually of a butt plug with a camera in it, but it certainly looks like it could be that)

What could possibly go wrong?

from here and here

I imagine Alexei Navalny would advise against accepting vaccines from these particular strangers.
