"If it's not 5 miles, how far is it? More, less?"

Bruce is being deliberately vague.

The tentacle position in the image steganographically encodes the location of the billboard.

'They' are trying to track Bruce, they knew he would post this image (how could he refuse?) but he's on to them!

"a painting of a Paul Bunyon-esque character holding a can of beer while being attacked by a giant squid"

I agree with Davi - it looks more like Bruce than Paul Bunyon.

Heck, the squid has been removed from his natural habitat (the sea). I imagine it just wants Paul/Bruce/Whoever to share the beer so it can get re-hydrated! :-)

Being attacked? I just see a guy and his pet squid out for a walk. Isn't it cute how it's begging for the can!

Schneier on security?
Ah, but less concerned about your own?
Or only other people's security?
Or only electronic security?

In case someone in Portland, OR is still checking these comments, there's one near you now! It's on the north side of SW Oak between 2nd and 3rd, facing east.
