In all seriousness though, I do think that internet privacy is kind of similar to securing your house.

There is a short list of sensible things you can protect yourself from the majority of malicious threats. However a genuinely determined individual will probably get through anything you put in their way, if they are sufficiently skilled.

Oh totally. There's no such thing as a 100% secure system. However the key to security is to make it secure enough that all bar a tiny few cannot gain entry.

Exactly. That's what this should be: a short list.

Short enough for it to be put into an ugly gif and spread using the most common media used by people who need to know it: Facebook.
