The scene: a woman goes to buy a cake for, oh, let's say her cat Whiskers's birthday. She decides to put a photo of Whiskers's face on top of the cake because oh isn't that fun and also she's a very lonely woman. She hands the baker a USB drive and asks that she use the photo. The baker smiles and nods in understanding, yet, going by the end result, didn't get it right. At all.
Now, with the limited information we have, we may never know the real story. Maybe the flash drive held a picture of the flash drive itself. Maybe it was all a filthy lie in one woman's quest for internet infamy. Maybe Kim Dotcom's encryption methods are even more elaborate and/or delicious than anyone could have ever dreamed. Or maybe, just maybe, the stars briefly aligned as one woman's lack of understanding met another's overly complicated request to create the perfect storm of USB pastries.
