Hello visitors! Happy New Year 2013!

I have finally chosen a blogging plateform: Wordpress.

Please visit: for the current and up-to-date blog.

This blogspot blog will be a clone (backup) of my wordpress blog. It means it will also be updated, but updates could be late. IF you prefer this plateform, please let me know and tell me why!

I'm flexible and I don't really care about the HOW, as long as the information is transmitted the best way possible!

Commit suicide by dehydration - In one click*

Here's an interesting conceptual idea I came up with (try keeping that in mind when the urge to comment arises): committing suicide by dehydration... in on click*.

So easy anyone or even YOU can do it!

Here's how it's actually possible. But first, some facts, because it's not totally mad (well, yeah it is, but no):

-The average human weight is around 70Kg. (based on Wikipedia for an unbiased weight)
-The total amount of water (in Liters or L) in the human body is approximately 57% of the whole body weight.

So we may conclude that we have approximately 40L or 40 000ml of water in our lumpy bodies. (open Calc if you wanna know how much water you're made of (your weight x 57% or 0.57). Oh, we can do this mathematical operation because 1g of water = 1ml.

-The human produces saliva. Yes, it does, in your mouth.
-When spitting, a single spit contains approximately 1-4 ml of liquid and 98% of it is water, so it's basically water. Let's  pick an average of say, 3ml.

Cool! We learned stuff.  Now what?

Now the suicide part.
-The body can be considered quit dehydrated as "soon" as a water loss of 5% to 6%  That's 2000ml and 2400ml respectively. One may become sleepy, experience headaches or nausea and may feel Paresthesi (a sensation of tingling, pricking, or numbness in a person's skin or limb).
-From 10% to 15% (of water loss), it's considered sever dehydration. Muscles may become spastic, vision may dim, delirium may begin, etc. Nice.
-Finally, water loss greater than 15% is fatal (means you die). That's 6000ml.

If you're thinking: "OK... now he's lost it." or "Now I'm lost." or something along those lines... keep reading!

Here's how to acheive the aforementioned dehydration in a just one click* :
A typical blockbuster-big-budget movie can be made over a period of one or several years, and thousands of person are employed or participate in the production of such movie. That's like, a lot of people.

The whole cast and crew of Avatar is (approx.) 2200 person - I know 'cause I copy pasted the whole cast & crew from IMBD (Internet Movie Database) and counted them (approx.)... And that headcount doesn't include all the people working for the companies/subsidiaries that were involved!

That being said, what would you think of someone that decides to steal those thousands of people's work? Wouldn't it be just like spitting in their faces? meaning "I don't give a sh** about your work. I'm a crook." No?  I think it is. IF you don't, well I think maybe your perception is wrong and maybe you've lost something along the way in your life... something called values and honesty. Something 99.99% of most Internet users lost or ignored at one time or another. Yay. O_o

Anyway, now you gotta be thinking " Humm... I ain't dehydrated yet!" or simply " Daabouh? Flepbleble".

Well, all you've got to do is click!! That mass-face-spittin' won't happen all by itself damn it! And base on the previously clearly explained facts, spitting in the faces of some 2200 person will get you past the fatal 15% water loss.

Happy suicide.


But where? Where can I click? WHERE? You tell me. Or ask Google, he's good at it. Hey, Hey, HEY! Wow! Stop. That's only what I "heard"... like I knew...

*Introspection in progress...* Maybe?

So, that's it! Hope you liked it!

Secure your personal data in 5 min

Welcome to an ultra fast and simple how-to.

You are now going to learn how to secure important data in less than 5 minutes. There are other ways to secure data, but the following method is meant to be fast, easy, reliable and free. TrueCrypt is an Open Source encryption program that simple, fast, secure (as in military-grade), used by millions of people (don't believe it? -> TrueCrypt Stats) and is free!

-Protect sensitive and/or private data. For real.
-Do so with a reliable, flexible and free solution.

-This tutorial is aimed at a Windows environment. Instructions for other OS may differ.
-Few details and explanation are given. Get going and secure your stuff today.
-I do not provide ANY kind of help. Read & enjoy!

STEPS (read first, then go for it!)
1. Download TrueCrypt. ( ONLY download form
2. Install TrueCrypt in portable mode, which is simple to do: select "extract" instead of install. This means you could choose to extract the files on a USB key and get yourself a portable military-grade encryption software anywhere you go.
3. Start TrueCrypt. (TrueCrypt.exe) You may create a shortcut if you want.
4. Press "Create volume" -> Next (Create an encrypted file container) -> Next (Standard TruCrypt volume). Click "Select file" (I know, it's weird, because we are creating a new file... anyway). Pick a name, save and click Next -> Next (Encryptions Options).
5. Volume Size - Now choose how big you want your container/volume to be. Pick a small size, but not too small. 50Mb is what I recommend (which is enough for personal information). Why small? To make this encrypted container portable and easy to upload/download/backup, etc. If you want or need bigger, go for it.
6. After you've define the size, create a password. You cannot recover a lost password with TrueCrypt. Consider yourself warned.
7. Volume Format - Choose NTFS (unless you have specific needs). Leave the rest as is (cluster: default, dynamic: unchecked) Move your mouse around to generate a random encryption algorithm.
8. Click "Format" to create your encrypted volume with the parameters you just configured. Exit.
9. To use the volume, select any drive letter you want to use. Then, "Select file", choose your volume (yes you can have many volumes) and click "mount". Tadam!
10. You can now create, move files/folders in your mounted volume just like any files in Windows. Exit TrueCrypt and you will notice it minimized into an icon in the tray bar. TrueCrypt won't shutdown if you have a volume mounted.
11. Unmount the volume and you have a secure vault impossible to crack without the password. Keep copies & backups of it anywhere you want, no one can access the content anyway. Now you can close TrueCrypt.

There. No more excuses for lost or stolen data.

You could store your volume(s)/files for free on Dropbox (2Gb), SkyDrive (25Gb/5Gb Synced), Google Docs (undefined limit), etc. Or keep copies on external hard drives, USB keys, cell phone, etc. Go crazy.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial as much I did making it! Feel free to comment and report any mistakes.
