A New York couple were surprised when a swat team from the Joint Terrorism Task Force showed up at their door.

They were peppering my husband with questions. Where is he from? Where are his parents from? They asked about me, where was I, where do I work, where do my parents live. Do you have any bombs, they asked. Do you own a pressure cooker? My husband said no, but we have a rice cooker. Can you make a bomb with that? My husband said no, my wife uses it to make quinoa. What the hell is quinoa, they asked. ...

Have you ever looked up how to make a pressure cooker bomb? My husband, ever the oppositional kind, asked them if they themselves weren’t curious as to how a pressure cooker bomb works, if they ever looked it up. Two of them admitted they did.

Turns out the couple had googled the words pressure cooker and backpack separately within a certain amount of time, and so apparently it raised flags with the NSA or some other agency or contractor (who knows?).

So you can be sure that we are all being monitored and should you type in the wrong words you too can expect a visit from a swat team, whose goal is to protect us from dangerous Google web searches!

All it takes is TWO or THREE WORDS!


People should consider using another search engine like duckduckgo.

My how times have changed. I remember downloading the anarchists cookbook on my computer when I was 13....all the cool kids had it. I never did anything with it or planned to do anything with it but I thought it was interesting to look at it.

I would be in jail if I had that shit now.

That story is crazy. People accidentally click on stuff all the time. At least I know I do.

I used to have a pressure cooker back in the 70's for canning. I also used a backpack instead of a purse.

I wouldn't have thought so...

Dogpile is a search engine that fetches results from Google, Yahoo! and Yandex, and includes results from several other popular search engines.

Michele Catalano, who lives in Long Island, New York, said her web searches for pressure cookers, her husband's hunt for backpacks, and her "news junkie" son's craving for information on the Boston bombings had combined somewhere in the internet ether to create a "perfect storm of terrorism profiling"

Its been like 2 hours and no one has come to the door . The Catalano's may be on watch list , or the N.S.A. does not watch people that use cricket wireless http://www.mycricket.com/ On the Anachists cook book , I bought one years ago at a gun sale . It has some how to bomb plans , how to grow weed , make l.s.d. ect.

On tits and ass , I started a post on N.S.A. agents that must get some kind of kick when they find a person watching a porn site . I would think it would be like catching a neghbor lady naked through the curtains .

I try to use different search engines. It just sucks that google comes up with great results and it's programmed in everyone's head. ("Oh just google it")...
I will try to "dog pile it" from now on, lol.

why does it say 'google' 'yahoo' and 'yandex' below the search keybar on dog pile though?..

why duckduckgo?

Also, I think the feds have many ISP's, including verizon, and other sources as well (various microsoft products, malware, etc).

Yes, you can. That's what was used at the Boston Marathon Bombing.

The article says the suspects coworkers contacted authorities after they saw suspicious searches on his company computer. This is not a case of someone simply typing in key words and having the cops knock on his door. The title is misleading.

Thanks for pointing that out. I hadn't had time to read it yet, but usually Skip does a better job of posting the facts.
