    You go as far as you need to, to achieve the outcome required :). If the outcome is 'don't email health records to gmail address' then you write rules to identify and quarantine... if the outcome is 'don't let someone walk out with XKeyscore' - then you use physical searches, metal detectors and properly trained staff.

    Very true. I reckon Disney could just about split off and form their own country at this point.

    Dyson Sphere in your home system, killing all life on Earth/Moon/Mars where you've established colonies.

    Disney are idiots.

    EDIT: Also, given that it's Disney on 4chan I expected more anti-semitism.

    We operate at the bottom of the classification food chain (sensitive personal) and that's just restrictive enough to be annoying as hell.

    Electron...

    All of the risks of browser based bollocks, without any of that pesky sandboxing.

    Surface area of a sphere scales with the square of the radius, though....compared to building a sphere inside the orbit of Mercury, building one outside the orbit of Mars uses ~16 times as much material. And that's assuming a thin shell that doesn't require additional bracing if you scale it up...

    How do you implement and safeguard the Three Laws into a buttplug?

    I mean, unless you implement some sort of locomotion protocol to allow it to relocate from the "shower", all those "slips" in the "shower" will violate the inaction dictate of First Law.

    That, I guess, or just make the flaring on the base fucking enormous.

    If you've got the skills, materials and resources to build a Dyson sphere around a star, surely at that stage, the size of the sphere is immaterial.

    IIRC someone figured out the requirements to do Sol.

    It'd take more material than exists in the planets and asteroid belt/oort cloud to do so.

    Space is big and very empty, stars are big.
