it would be FAR too expensive to store that much data on that many people for that long period of time. all they really do is look for keywords or phrases related to terrorism, none of it is actually stored. it goes in, is checked for threats or dangerous plots, then goes into a hold period for a few months where a second scan is run, then after that its deemed irrellevent information and discarded

Dude, we have $5 flashdrives that store 16GB of data. That's after increasing the price to may the retailer for distribution. 16 gigs can store a lot of data, just think how much internet history can be stored if they only spent $100,000 on storage. Considering your history can be stored as a text file, that's a lot of people's history for quite a long time. Money is of no issue.

But yes, you are correct.

Actually storage on a mechanical hard drive can cost less than 0.05 cents per a gigabyte so 100,000 dollars can get you 2000 terabytes of data storage (note this is a rough estimation and costs of servers with redundancy will add a hell of alot more to the price tag)

Yeah and now add server clusters to adress all this storage capacity, then add power costs and your price per gig of data storage goes boom

Well, to clarify, I didn't technically announce a school shooting. I just sat in class with my fingers in the shape like a gun and pointed at everyone. As I passed over each individual, I either said "bang" and pretended to shoot, or told them "I like you. You get to live."

one or two of the girls cried because they thought I was serious (Lol, one of them was the girl I had a huge crush on), one of the boys just looked at me in horror. The rest were just like "Dude, are you okay? Do you wanna talk about it?"
I may or may not have been crying hardcore while pretending to kill everyone in class, right before motioning pulling the trigger on my own head.

Damn, I was one messed up kid.

I'd prefer you thought it was funny. It makes it easier to look back on and not flip **** about.

And yeah, I was a ****** up kid. Got bullied, to this day have never had a girlfriend, didn't get my first kiss until I was a senior in highschool, and it was random slut who was giving me a bj. She snuck it in there before I had a chance to react. Went to my Senior prom alone and OD'd on those energy pills you get at gas stations. Took 4 instead of 1 and ended up leaving less than an hour after getting there. I took the beach towels out of my trunk and made a bed on the side of the road by the lake. I had to convince the cops that came by to investigate that I had just gotten overheated during prom and needed some fresh air. That... actually was pretty ******* funny.

Only fight I was in was 5th grade. Some kid threw dog poo onto my new shirt, so I got him in a choke hold and kept him there clawing my face with his nails until he almost passed out. When I let him go he was too out of breath to do anything back.

Nice, I've had about five I think, though most of them were closer to assault than anything. A dude was going to attack me in the gym, as he went to duck under the volley ball net, I grabbed the net and threw myself down and forward, this essentially clotheslined him, he also has a scar under his eye, though his a horizontal wide line.

Cut myself between 8th and 11th grade. Was lonely, desperate, and wanted to die. I smoked pot for the first time when I was 16, anger issues have dropped by 90% since then. I used to get angry at the smallest things (like the bed sheets not fitting) and now I'm really chill and let things go. Between then and now I've tried every drug I can name (benzos, methamphetamines, weed, opiate based pain-killers, etc.) except coke or heroin, without getting a taste for any of them. Finally stopped taking anti-depressants two weeks before college started (been on them since 7th grade). Was still depressed until I dropped out a year later, now I'm living at home and unemployed. Oddly enough though, I haven't felt this not-depressed since I was too young to know what the word even meant. I no longer want to kill myself, don't even think about cutting anymore, am not addicted to drugs or alcohol (although I smoke between 2 and 5 cigarettes a day, started the day I turned 18), and have come to terms with the fact that I'm single. This new-found happiness started right after I dropped out of college... Anyway, I'm no longer a threat to society or myself, so I would have to say I'm doing just fine.

Meth was fun, wouldn't do it again though. Not a big fan of weed, but I'd smoke it if it was free. Didn't like opiates, and the only time I took benzos I blacked out and, according to my friends, took a butcher knife and announced that I was going to do something cool. Then I sliced the bottom of my foot open and passed out on the couch. College was some crazy ****.

Don't say that to us, say that to this guy: www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/09/nsa-whistleblower-edward-snowden-why

(You're right of course, but the knowns are (IMO): abuses of the system, scandals, bad pictures being painted of innocent people [perhaps you!], have occured plenty of times throughout history, and w/o the people's say in things, they will occur more frequently in the future. Yes you can still say, "well I won't get arrested or targeted with p<0.05", but other innocents will be. My go-to examples of these kinds of things are perfectly sane vets being arrested and put in mental institutions without their rights being read, and innocent foreign prisoners being kept jailed. Losing our rights gives an immoral world.)

Because it's all about control. The metadata from your phone calls is stored as well. They know who you called, when you called, where you called from, and how long the call was.

As of now, this data mining is innocuous. But remember that while this is being uncovered, we're ALSO investigating the IRS for politically targeting people. It's not a huge stretch to suggest that this data could be used to target people the government has issues with.

Say your engaged in some political opposition to the current or future DJ 4DM1Nistration. This DJ 4DM1Nistration could then go and see all of the people your group communicates with. So now they have a larger list of targets which they will investigate and harass with unnecessary bureaucracy.

Chances are that this never happens. But we've already seen it happen with the IRS.

Because this data mining operation gathers so much data on a daily basis, it's unlikely that it can effectively stop terrorism as it was supposedly created to do.

Also, the government has no ******* right to monitor what I do without a warrant.

TL;DR: The big deal isn't necessarily what is happening, but rather the implications of it and the power over the people it gives to government.
