Please name other amendments to the United States Constitution, and how they cannot be applied to modern technology.

The first amendment did not take the internet and mass/social media into account, yet we have the protection of speech, assembly, religion and to petition the government.

The writers of the 4th amendment did not envision email, chat logs, and hard drives, yet they fall under the purview of "personal papers and effects" and are ostensibly protected from warrantless search and seizure.

These laws are not "BS" as they very deliberately put hard caps on what the government is allowed to do, they do not grant rights and privileges like European laws do. The 2nd amendment is the freedom of the people to bear arms in order to provide for the security of a free state. The technology is deliberately not defined but fall under the blanket umbrella of "arms" which have advanced in effectiveness since time immemorial.

The fact that Americans are armed to the teeth give government at least some pause to whether or not they can get away with things. Doesn't always work, but the potential is there. Its better than holding your limp dick in the face of automatic weapons. Please read pic related:

You can rotate and translate in more ways as you add dimensions, why not reflect?

Why is there only one reflection, even in higher dimensions?

@ledocool431 Flat is nothingness. Flat is the refusal to grow, change, and evolve. Flat is stasis, the absence of progress. Flat is sameness. Flat is avoiding differentiating yourself from your counterpart. Flat is stubbornly refusing to let go of the past and move on. Flat is the suppression and binding of femininity. Flat is far from justice.

I think the bees might be an allusion to Wicker Man, which I have never seen, but know it involves a cult and bees.

One other detail, before I lose it: The people called the bees something like "Shelby's bee". I think my brain was making an oblique allusion to Langston's ant.

I have a lot of dreams that end when a bug lands on me and I freak out.
