A piece of scripted software to check finer details of account users out in real space. Mainly to kick off bots. Subtle things like car registration, drivers license, oh, fire-arms license (you know who), and maybe payed taxes ( although avoidance is ok).

The last thing the Halfbakery needs is to pay for a croissant. Fish bones not so much.

       No thanks, it's fine.

       I want to bun that anno. Probably spent too much time on FB.

       So kind of an e-verify for potential users? I think an occasional bot would be entertaining.   

       What is an "oh fire-arms license" ? Something required in the state of Ohio before you can set fire to your upper appendages?

       Don't make us do the Travis Bickle thing at you.   

       // before you can set fire to your upper appendages? //   

       100% of plastic surgeons in burn units advise against using napalm as a depilatory.

       [normzone] Yes, due to to that whole Facebook 'like' devaluation.   

       <squirming out of grammar mistake> fire can sometimes mean throw. Oh, throwing armament license </squirming out of grammar mistake>

       "Bring out the Trebuchet ! "

       Oh, I see - NOW there's a comma.

       The wonders of time-travel, amazingly annoying.

       Annoying ? In that case, we want your pants, your boots, and your motorcycle.

       I think you can look anybody up online for $19. The halfbakery would gain tremendously from an additional hundred users ($1900). I'm aware multiple people have offered [Jutta] money to enrich the .5b and extend its purposes, so $1900 is nothing.   

       The money thing brings up something important though, once again should the halfbakery recruit new contributors? It is likely [Jutta] could pay a plurality of halfbakers to invite the very most halfbakery-like posters on reddit to join the halfbakery.   

       Notably, because people are keen on giving the .5b money she would not have to use any of her own. Is it really possible to recruit 10 new [Maxwell Buchanan]s for $1000? Earnest halfbakers would like to try.   

       I'm against verifying halfbakery users' human status. I do favor recruiting more participants.

       Well, he did back up his genome, didn't he?
