I see stupid people.

Well known security expert Bruce Schneier asks in his blog why the following is on the U.S. Visa application:

    Huh? Heres one on a visa application I recently filled out:

    Have you ever been sick with a communicable disease of risk for the public or suffered a dangerous physical or mental disorder?

    They might as well have asked:

    Do you want a visa, “yes” or “no”
