Death Switch

I’m afraid this is a real company – it seems like a weird thing to need – wouldn’t you do just as well putting the information in a will, or some other document that is reviewed only after your death?

 And the picture below, snipped from their Flash home-page doesn’t make me feel especially good about the data they are protecting, either: Our servers are hacker-proof – Really?  I didn’t think such a thing existed.  And having my data distributed around the globe wouldn’t make me feel any more secure either!

  1. Brian – very funny, thanks! You get 5000 worthless Drew Cary points for wit!

  2. Here are the uses and responses:

    Computer Passwords:
    Does this include my myspace account? Do you really need all my computer passwords?

    Financial Advise/bank account:
    What? I mean what you going to say to the bank, “well Death Switch gave me all this information, can I withdrawal all the funds?”

    Final Wishes:
    “Cancel my death switch account, it was worthless.”

    Unspeakable Secrets:
    “Anna, I didn’t make that from scratch, it was hamburger helper.”

    Love Notes:
    Dear [fill in current girlfriend]

    Since I met you at [fill in location], I knew you and I would be together.

    Now I am dead, I ruined everything.

    Love,
    Brian

    WTF, come on.

    Last word in argument:
    Told you paper napkins make great parachutes. Ass.

    Funeral Instruction:

    Please place me 6.5 feet below the ground. That way, during the night of the living dead I will arrive fashionably late due to the extra .5 foot of digging.

    Come on, this is stupid. Really really stupid.

    My first comment Rob, how was it?
