Worried about the NSA? Try the postal service instead

Nervous that the NSA is looking over your shoulder? Don’t want them to know which cat photo (or any kind of photos or videos, for that matter) you are looking at or watching? Don’t despair! Here is a foolproof way to make sure the NSA can’t spy on your Internet activity.

Be aware, this technique is complicated. You need to acquire puffy paint markers, an envelope and stamps. Where does one even find those things these days?

And addresses? What kind of antiquated address doesn’t end with @someplace.com? Obviously, this is going to take some getting used to, but at least we can still use hashtags.

Finally, you'll need to find a mailbox so you can deposit the package directly into the hands of the government in the form of the United States Postal Service. Curious that it's more private if you intentionally hand it over. Or is it?
