A mate took this photo for me - I'd seen it when I was in Melbourne last time round, but didn't get a chance to take it myself.

I was quite annoyed when I saw this, as its simply not true. How can what I ate for breakfast help fight terrorists? How can what colour socks I'm wearing be vital to national security? Its just adding to the climate of fear, and getting people used to the idea that the government should know absolutely everything about us... So much for privacy.
