Harrumphhhh.

There's a form of colonoscopy camera in capsule form that one swallows and it transmits to the GI/radiologist/lab pics of its passage through the colon until it passes from the body.

That's about as far as I'm willing to extend my good faith and credit for such items.

The wireless device is nearly weightless and requires so little power it can fuel itself with miniature solar collectors or by picking up stray or transmitted electromagnetic radiation, the study said.

I think that's pretty dang cool.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

- Thomas Jefferson
