German Finger

with 5 comments

I already had a pic of the official german finger print scanner in my blog lately.
But this time I had to get a new passport which includes a scan of my left and right index finger.
~I am really so happy that I can help my country to save us from terrorism by having my fingers scanned, wonderfull ~ …. [hehe, but I didn t tell them they were scanning a Schäuble (Minister of Internal Affairs) replica ;-)]

More details about the fake fingerprint of german Minister of Internal Affairs on

Before this goes out of control! I didn’t really do it. I haven’t used a Schäuble replica for my passport finger scans. But I just wanted to point out the possibility (as suggested by CCC last 24c3) .

  5. So you are not talking about a misdemeanor. Which law do you mean then?
