their pockets? if trust has to come from a commercial entity....
it just seems icky... paying for trust appeals to me about as much as
paying for sex.

"There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers
exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will
instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more
bizarrely inexplicable. There is another theory which states
that this has already happened."
