Even people living completely off the grid deserve the
convenience of pizza delivery. The Dead Drop Delivery
service requires no app, credit card, phone number, or
verification. They just show up with food and take your
How it works
Lets say youre John Connor in Rise of
and you want a pizza. Maybe you and
Kate Brewster are hungry but afraid to venture out
So you give each of your few trusted agents PART of your
order on different scraps of paper and instruct them to
place them at different spots around town. You later tell
different set of agents to visit those location, collect the
scraps at different time, and deliver them (again, at
staggered times) to a drop location near the pizzeria.
The pizzeria - affiliated with the DDD service - monitors
the drop location at regular intervals and when there are
enough instructions to assemble a proper pizza, they do
so. But they dont bake it or slice it. They simply put it
a sealed weatherproof container at a pre-arranged
away from the ordering drop.
After waiting an appropriate time, John Connor gives
money to one of his agents who goes and gets the pizza.
He brings it back to Crystal Peak where John and Kate
it in the commissary oven and have a last romantic
before the end of the world.
Dead Drop Deliver promises to get your order to you in
thirty days or less, or your pizza is free!
Makes as much sense as anything else in that stinker of a

||I just don't get the hate for Terminator 3. It's my favourite
one! (It is possible that the presence of Claire Danes is
biasing my evaluation...)
||Just my opinion, but T2: Judgement Day was
better. Rare that I like a sequel better than the
first of a series.
||I only picked T3 here for a film reference to
someone living off the grid. Obviously he
couldnt use a credit card or
even give his name or phone number to the local
||You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it.

||One of those melty robots could still disguise themselves as a glob of
mozzarella, and strike once the pizza is served. They'd have been forewarned of
the plan by its evidence here on the halfbakery.
||Also, the tricky part of cooking a pizza isn't assembling the ingredients
(though mozzarella might be tricky to keep fresh in the desert), it's having an
actual pizza oven with matching pizza-oar for placement and retrieval of
suitably entopped thin-crust sourdough base. Any survivalist worth their salt
would surely be able to set one of these up in their chain-link perimetered
||I don't mind the Tx films, after T1, the rest are mostly a vehicle for Arnold to say "Aarhl be back" in varying
situations and circumstances.
||////You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it.////
||Too late, [Voice]. I can almost* guarantee that someone,
somewhere, knows your real name, home address, and pizza
preferences and a crapton more about you - and that such
information is available to anyone who wants to pay for it.
||At that point it becomes reasonable to ask what is more
worrisome - The possibility that your information could be
weaponized against you? Or the chance that you would be
seriously impaired in modern
society if your data actually WAS wiped or at least
* Almost - because well, maybe you really are a hermit living
in the backwoods somewhere, and you just come into the
public library in town somewhere to use the interwebs and
||Give me liberty or give me death. To not be permitted common activities like working, shopping, accessing my money, and traveling is to be denied freedom. Freedoms that are human rights and must not be predicated on a willingness to pay for them in ANY currency, except the occasional bloodbath by which the tree of liberty must, from time to time, be refreshed. Whether these liberties will be curtailed by the tyranny of a corporate plutocracy or by the tyranny of an overbearing state when that day comes you, too, will realize it's time. The erosion of privacy is just one of the many insidious vines leaching the life from that mighty tree.
||I'm not aware of any inalienable right* to order a pizza (or
other product) without tendering payment in a form the
accepts. It also seems reasonable (not tyrannical) for the
vendor to ask for a
name to put on the order and where to deliver it. But as you
DO seem to insist on that, I designed the Dead Drop Delivery
system just for you.
* If you can find this right enumerated in the US or any
constitution, please provide a reference.
