    My gym just moved and now they want me to scan my finger print to get in. I am refusing to do it because I don't want a copy of my fingerprint to be stolen by some Chinese hacker. They are really giving me a rash of shit but I refuse to do it. Am I being out of line here?

    That's ridiculous. It's a gym, not the Pentagon. I would say no too. All they should need to see....

    Fuck that. Sea World here in San Diego implemented fingerprint scanners for their annual pass members. They said its to ensure the person using the card is the actual cardholder. I refused every time I visited the park and opted to show my ID. They even wanted to fingerprint scan my 3 year old son!

    Yeah in my gym you get a key after a certain amount of time. Sorry but I wouldn't want any organisation having my finger prints. Are any other members objecting?

    What would a "Chinese" hacker do with your fingerprints? Launch missiles?

    Identity theft is extremely rare and usually happens when someone is conned into actually giving out personal info they shouldn't be giving out.

    "Who goes to a gym? What's wrong with people? If you want to exorcise, run around the block a few times! Who does that? Gym's are full of germs and diseases from third world countries. People are so stupid! Just stay home. Am I right, Robin? ...Robin?"

    I hate my phone is listening to me. The flipping PlayStation is listening. And now a bloody gym wants your finger print.
    To me there's just something sacred and criminal about wanting a print. Very frightening.
    I would refuse too.

    Fuck mutt

    What is a Chinese Hacker going to do with your fingerprint, you social security number is more valuable and every utility, bank and pharmacy you use have it on file.

    If you paid a membership ask for a refund because they have changed the contract in order for you to use the place and you don't want to abide by the new rules.

    Some banks require a fingerprint to get a cash advance on a CC or cash a check. Fuck that.

    That does it. Now I'm definitely not getting a gym membership until this oppression stops.

    I stand with my brothers.

    Disney World takes finger prints now too. Hard to tell your kid you can't go to disney... but anyway, it's not Chinese hackers you have to worry about, it's the gym that has your print. I would would say no also and take my business elsewhere. Don't forget they already have your driver's license, your credit report and all your other info.

    I stopped going to the gym years ago. Get a set of Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells and a pull-up bar. Follow the p90x program if you want mass. Do Rush-Fit if you want to get lean. Avoid Insanity. That program will kill your joints.

    Are you a high ranking national security task force member? If not, you are being paranoid.
