 I have become known as a NOTORIOUS guy who gathers information about ship history.
Lets use Notable though!

In perhaps ten years of my following dead ships to their grave,

When it came to following the Navy's Air Craft Carriers, it became more difficult.
All persons who were connected with the move were FORBIDDEN to talk to me.
It started off CHILE.
But I had recorded a pattern on how the ships were moved and followed them anyway.
The modern ship following technologies,
 with a signal ships are required to transmit, makes it simple.

Webcams placed in high traffic places also help.
Google sends cars around the whole world to take pictures of your front door.

Now think about how the Japanese were able to attack Pearl Harbor successfully.
They used technologies available to acquire the information needed to get to the
right place without being detected. They also had local workers to listen to
Navy personnel talk about their job. Yup! The old adage still applies people.

Terrorists, already in place, are using the new technologies against us.
Use the right information to make your life a happy one.

MARK TWAIN was once broke like we are. He said,
"It is not a sin to go into debt but YOU ARE A DAM FOOL not to try and get out.
