Specialist subject, the bleedin' obvious.

It's not just software patents that are dubious… someone's applying for a US patent on the stunning and not at all obvious idea of having a testing system "wherein the test is privately conducted and testing results are anonymously reported without revealing a person's identity".

How is this miracle achieved? By – get ready for the shock – giving people a personal code number.

It's application #20010012611, and will doubtless be granted soon.
