Searching for Terrorists in World of Warcraft
So, you're sitting around the house with your buddies, playing World of Warcraft. One of you wonders: "How can we get paid for doing this?" Another says: "I know; let's pretend we're fighting terrorism, and then get a government grant."
Having eliminated all terrorism in the real world, the U.S. intelligence community is working to develop software that will detect violent extremists infiltrating World of Warcraft and other massive multiplayer games, according to a data-mining report from the Director of National Intelligence.
You just can't make this stuff up.
EDITED TO ADD (3/13): Funny.
