Folks in Europe want to be forgotten or as the European Union calls it the “Right to be forgotten” (RTBF).

Wow! What will they come up with next? The “right to be naked in public”!

Come on! These people want to have their names removed from internet-based searches. Unless one has been living under a rock, this seems nearly impossible in today’s world. Search engines, such as Google, allows one to find whatever they want from the recipe to make cookies or the recipe to make a pipe bomb.

Scary? Absolutely. Yet, that is what one can look up.

And these people think that they can be “deleted” from a search because they want to? It does not seem realistic.

The only way this seems possible is to either change your identity or move to a deserted island with no technological attachments to the rest of the world.

Just don’t forget the sun screen.
