If the FBI can target you and garner your emails on suspicion you might be a security risk, your privacy is screwed… and after reading about what GWB era suspicion was, that would mean calling the President nasty names? 99% of the USA is at risk.

Each order is a random set of 5, so you won’t be able to get all the pieces for 800. Not a good deal if you are looking to get all 16 different prints, eventually.

What really freaked me out about that vid is the irradiated children on the posters–was this a benefit for the victims of Chernobyl or something?

You can buy just one for $50. But if you want the full set of 16, that’ll set you back $1,000. Yes, there are 50 full sets for sale. But that’s not the $50 I was talking about.

Funny joke on the 20×200, except what they mean is that; This is a limited series of 50 prints, each selling for $1,000. Of course it seems that people in the liberal arts don’t know the use of punctuation…
