One just has to love America's safety regulations

I just ordered a new PC, which means I'm now officially in the reds. But enjoy with me one of the many questions I had to answer on the ordering form. I swear I am not making this up:

As a US company, Dell is bound to comply with US export regulations.

Question 4. Are you going to use the ordered products in connection with weapons of mass destructions, e.g. fields of nuclear applications, rocket technology or for chemical or biological weapons?

Boy, that even beats the "Are you currently planning to carry out an act of terrorism during your stay in the United States?" questions when you're applying for US entry clearance.

Way to go bureaucracy, if you just bring up your point often enough I'm sure Osama will yield to his bad conscience at last.

I wonder what happens when you answer YES? :-)

I think it said you're egible for special rebates when you agree to coordinate your act of terrorism with Fox News and the White House, but I might have read that wrong.

Hey, you still get the computer if it's for terrorism but you're from Germany (this also applies to Israel, the current Afgani government, England, and a good deal of Central/South America). Dell and the Bush Administration have assumed that it's for white supremacy groups, since things obviously never change anywhere (that's their plan, at least). It's like the Klansmen who got caught with enough anthrax to kill thousands, but they weren't arrested as terrorists because they're the good kind.
