How many times in the last 6 months have you tried to explain public key cryptography to someone?

This is a question from Jack. He's trying to explain it to me but I'm trying to distract him with my boobs.

Boobs always trump public key cryptography.

Point taken. :) What would trump explaining encryption key cryptography at 7:41 on a friday for you?

Oh, pretty much anything. I like cyrptography, but by 7:41 on a Friday I'd rather be in "don't bug me, I'm having a weekend" mode. :)

Imagine a bra with two locks...

Is one a public lock and one a private lock?

As long as there's no star-shaped nipple ring on the breast under the public lock...

About once every two weeks. I get that a lot.

Public key cryptography WITH boobs would be the big win.

Many. Many many many. Unsuccessfully.

It's part of my job at work.

I have not. Nor, thankfully, has anyone attempted to explain it to me. I'm not into that kinky stuff.

oh
if i had a dime for every time i tried to explain public key cryptography to someone at work


me: so, let me tell you about public key cryptography
my kid: baBAAA behBEHH (starts to run into corner then turns around and pulls my hair)


me: now some cryptography involves keys that are private, others involve those that are public
girl: tomorrow's saturday
me: no, today's Tuesday, so tomorrow is... Wuh... Wuh... what day starts with Wuh?
girl: tomorrow's my birthday
me: no, your birthday was 3 months ago, and tomorrow starts with the sound o-
girl: I'm going to the bathroom in the boys' room because i'm a boy



me: so let me tell you about public key cryptography
boy who has too many female role models in his life: I'm going to draw a picture of Bratz!
me: but do you understand? In a classic cryptosystem, we have encryption functions E_K and decryption functions D_K such that-
boy: i like bratz cuz you can change their clothes!
(boy then decides to hide under desk)



fuck, i love my job

That was awesome.

I have similar conversations, but then again I'm an administrator at a national healthcare firm.

Well, he's already posted as much.

Personally, there'd be the question, are these boobs just to distract me, or are they sincere? I can do without insincere boobs.
