VPNs are great for security, but one of the big reasons many people use one is to mask or change their IP address. This lets you get around location-based restrictions on content, or check if your provider is throttling your connection. Unfortunately, a new security flaw can reveal your real IP address to prying eyes, even if you're using a VPN, and it's easy to exploit. Here's how it works, and what you can do about it.

How to find out what people really think.

If you ask somewhat what they do, think or believe there's a very good chance you won't get the truth. 

What you'll get is what they want you to believe about them, or what they want to believe about themselves. 

For example, if you ask: "Are you always honest?" or "Are you a courteous driver?" they're probably going to tell you "yes" even if that isn't really true. 

A better way to find out what people do, think or believe is to ask them what they think most other people do, think or believe, according to economist Tyler Cowen. 

"I think most people are usually honest but will lie when it's convenient" or "most people are a**holes behind the wheel" probably reveals the truth about that person more than it demonstrates the ability of that person to gauge statistical probabilities about the general population. 

The reason is that people both have inaccurate views about themselves and also believe their actions and thoughts and beliefs are representative of the majority of people.

My Top 5 would be:
1. Transporters like in StarTrek (go anywhere).
2. Replicators like in StarTrek (create anything).
3. Knowledge/Skill downloads like in the Matrix or a smart pill like in Limitless, but without the side-effects (learn/do anything).
4. HUD implant to the visual cortex like Kiera's CMR in Continuum (real-time information when you need it).
5. Nanobots in the blood stream to maintain health and prevent disease/infection (live long and prosper).
