My passport is actually invalid as a form of ID for anyone who checks closely(the BMV did!) because the gov't printed the wrong birthdate on mine!
I went to Germany and back just after the embassy attacks in africa(things were on high alert briefly then) with no questions on it. Try to renew my lost drivers license with it and suddenly its a damn problem. As far as I can tell, they used the month of issue as the birth month as well. A small mistake...but obviously an important one. What ways do you suppose there will be for them to screw up these RFID tags? These days ones libel to get branded a terrorist with the wrong info... - -- Chris Clymer - [EMAIL PROTECTED] PGP: E546 19B6 D1EC 47A7 CAA0 8623 C807 398C CD27 15B8 -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.2.7 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFDZnnuyAc5jM0nFbgRAvBaAKDFUH2QFmKJqIk7WYkw5esWUy/MsACgwWvH iHYKEguTdSdU0wRTIeI4lZg= =UyJk -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
