WARNING TO MAKERS AND UPCYCLERS!!!
+Media Markt Deutschland  ARRESTED Swiss MAKER FOR PICKING UP TRASH!
I am now a THIEF for picking up an old laptop from the trash container. I waill have to pay $300 reparation to Media Markt and will have to pay about the same amount of police fees. The police had to march aou 3 times that day, every time because of "theft" of trash. 
The funnny thing is that Media Markt will lose money because I spend thousands of $ in the past years in their shop which I'm now ordered to stay away from. See attached documents (in german). ‪#maker‬ ‪#‎arrested‬ ‪#‎mediamarkt‬

Happy to see there are Brits acting and thinking rationally about the ... still outstanding invasion of GBR by Romanians, one year after working in Britain has become legal for us.

And still pissed by how much stupidity and lack of knowledge there is on both parts.

More recently, Perelman coached 16 students who were retaking the test after having received mediocre scores on the essay section. He told them that details mattered but factual accuracy didn’t. “You can tell them the War of 1812 began in 1945,” he said. He encouraged them to sprinkle in little-used but fancy words like “plethora” or “myriad” and to use two or three preselected quotes from prominent figures like Franklin Delano Roosevelt, regardless of whether they were relevant to the question asked. Fifteen of his pupils scored higher than the 90th percentile on the essay when they retook the exam, he said.

Your view is biased by the voting realities of the UK alone. There are places in the world where a lot more fraud happens with paper votes than would happen with e-votes - it is way easier to bully people into voting what they don't want with paper voting than with e-voting, if you can physically control the voting section - something that's impossible with e-voting. And your understanding of software, cryptography and other technology fields related to electronic voting is superficial at best.

To give you an example: during the last Romanian presidential elections, the government in charge did everything by the book - even keeping the number and size of voting sections abroad equal to what was established years ago, in spite of the Romanian population working abroad, spread throughout the EU countries, having increased by more than one order of magnitude. The reason was that it was well known that most Romanians working abroad would have voted against the government party's candidate - which they did. By doing this, the government infringed on the democratic right elect their president of more than three million Romanians - but legally nobody can be prosecuted due to flawed laws (which were voted in Parliament by the same party). Had electronic voting been possible, no such thing could have happened.

To a large extent, threats and risks are similar, for both paper voting and electronic voting. However, each one has risks that the other one doesn'

+Florin Jurcovici My argument above stands. You just gave examples of a one by one method for paper and tried to imply that this in some way invalidated my point when the fact that you are pointing at one by one methods is yet more evidence supporting my point above.

Use a laser printer and you won't need oven baking or anything similar to prevent colors fom running. And you should be able to use any amount of water you like to make rubbing off the paper easier without damaging the image.
