The following talk by Chris Rock was one of the standout talks earlier this month in Las Vegas. The video is just over 30 minutes in length and worth watching, as it highlights a number of basic logic flaws in the death industry.

I was able to catch the first few minutes of the talk live, but now that the video is available, I felt it was worth sharing.

From the description:

Have you ever wanted to kill someone? Do you want to get rid of your partner, your boss or your arch nemesis? Perhaps you want to enjoy your life insurance payout whilst you’re still alive. Do you have rich elderly parents that just won’t die quick enough? Or do you want a “Do Over” new identity.

Then, this presentation is for you! I’ll provide you with the insight and techniques on how to “kill” someone and obtain a real death certificate and shutdown their lives. It focuses on the lack of security controls that allow any of us to virtually kill off anyone or any number of people. Forget the Dexter way of killing someone, I’ll show you how to avoid the messy clean up and focusing in on the digital aspects. You could be dead right now and not even know it....
