Google jumps aboard the "Rip-Off-Briton" bandwagon. Nice one google. Not satisfied with screwing the UK taxman with it´s tax avoidance, google now decides to rip off the public too. I can just see people getting their faces punched in on a Saturday night out in Newcastle wearing their google spy cam. I don´t think google understands the culture in the UK too well.

So now we know that being an American Doosh is worth about $200 more than being a British Doosh. American Dooshes Win!

The little spy camera that tells everyone that you are an idiot has its wearers complaining of attacks. Awe shucks! Now you have spy drones hovering outside apartment buildings video taping women in the nude and posting on porn sites. One thing in common: Spy cameras invade your personal space

Virgin Air, British based, uses the glass hole and for that I will never ever use them again

If the Glass can see it, the person wearing it can as well, so thats a bollocks argument, not that I would have expected more from you. The idiots are the ones attacking people for having a camera. If someone is up to something dodgy they are going to use a camera you can't see, not one that is blatant to anyone with half a brain.

I have no issues with and will not come to the rescue of any nerdy white male being given a work over while wearing glass hole. I may even lend a hand. But because this hasn't happened, it just a bucketlist item

Then you are not only a retard but an immoral wanker as well. Seriously, attacking someone for wearing a camera.... despite the fact I have no doubt you are also carrying one on your phone. Talk about stupid and ignorant.

I guess there are repercussions for the stuff you do - sigh

Ah, nice justification. I suppose beating someone up for not following the 'right' religion is ok to you too? After all thats equally something someone has every right to do, but may in-inadvertently cause offence.

Ha ha - You're onto religion now. lol I guess you were not smacked on the head growing up to know that there are consequences and actions that may negatively affect your well-being that you have no control over. Wow, how old are you? (ignore question locks) - Stop spamming the page with your tripe

Do you actually read or just do you fire random bollocks at the keyboard? This has nothing to do with actions that may or may not affect your well-being, thats another attempt by you to deflect from the fact that you are supporting not only discrimination, but violence in support of discrimination. You might not like or agree with Glass, but supporting violence against people that wear it is immoral. Not only sad, but completely immoral, which so far about sums you up I'm afraid.

Ok you silly t*t I will likely destroy and defend all wearers of G$$GLE spy glasses at ever possible moment and fiber of my being Better

Well, it made slightly more sense than your usual drivel, so its an improvement! (true, that isn't really saying a lot). Keep trying!
