    Pay By Touch lands grocery deal in Southeast

    I'm sure somebody has posted this before, but anyway, here it is again. The contract was awarded in March and starting today, people shopping at Piggly Wigglies in the Southeast now have the option of paying for their food by swiping their hand.

    ahem...... I don't like this.

    I could go on forever about this sort of stuff.

    I will spare the board my rant.

    Anyone participating in this by choice brings my blood to boil instantaneously.

    I wonder how doubters will reconcile biblical prophecy when we move to a cashless society?

    The same way they do now.

    Bully has told me he cannot argue the prophecy or science in the Bible, for instance.

    -Yet he rejects it completely like a fictional story.

    Just like people escape into their own realities for comfort or a bottle for relaxation, or tv for vacation, I guess they just turn away for the escape to convenienceville.

    I personally cannot relate to it.

    And what do you think about them?

    What were the thoughts then versus now?

    This is the religious section, Sandy.

    :)

    Aren't you supposed to stir with Biblical or other spiritual implications here?
