A 13-year-old Girl Scout in San Francisco recently set up shop outside a marijuana clinic and sold 117 boxes of Girl Scout cookies within two hours. The cookies were such a big hit, she’s been invited back.

Alright ladies and gentleman and all those who do not fall within gender stereotypes of society, I’m going to teach you about to torrenting, what is it and how to do it. Scrap your youtube2mp3 convertor and your streaming websites, torrenting will save your life.
[this looks like a long read, but its actually very simple and easy if you don’t know how to torrent I suggest you learn now]
What is torrenting?
This guy on reddit made a pretty good analogy- Imagine you want a copy of a book. You get online and say “Hey, anyone have this book?” A conventional download would be like one person saying “I’ve got that book. Let me give it to you”, and then giving you the whole book. A torrent is more like 200 people saying “Hey. We’ve each got pages of this book. Let us give you the pages and you can put the book together yourself.”
How to torrent:
Using the previous analogy, ‘putting the book together yourself’ can be done pretty easily on torrenting programs like Utorrent. Go to the link and download the software and install it. Once that’s done open it up and have it ready for your torrents.
Next, The Pirate Bay, this is pretty much one of the biggest torrent file websites out there. The Pirate Bay allows you to search for many things like music, movies, TV shows, porn, games, whatever tickles your pickle. For this example, I’m going to download Alt-J’s new album (which is very good btw) it’s best to keep your searches broad by either having just the artist, album name, or song name to maximise your results.
Click “Pirate Search” and this will load:
Now this is what is going to show on your screen, but we need to make further sense of this. Click SE (seeds) and it will arrange the torrent files from what is being shared the most to the least. Getting a torrent with many seeds means faster downloads and most likely a more reliable torrent.
So now all “Alt-J” searchers are arranged by seeds, you’ll notice under the search bar you can restrict searchers to show only audio, videos etc. Sometimes names of files double up and movies/albums might show together if they have the same name. In most cases you probably won’t need to do that, but it’s good to know.
Generally speaking the most seeded torrents are the newest stuff, Alt-J’s new album is at the top with over 1000 seeds (which is plenty) click on the name of want you want and it will take you a page similar to this:
This part is simple enough, click get this torrent and it will automatically open up in Utorrent!
Once that goes underway, you’ll be able to see how much of your torrent has downloaded, how much time is remaining and where the download is going to be saved too (this is defaulted to downloads folder but can be changed in the Utorrent preferences)
When the torrent is completed your file will be all ready for use, if its music, just drag and drop into your Itunes. If its a movie, I recommend downloading VLC player to watch it on as it support many file types.
Anyway I hope this guide was clear enough, no more youtube2mp3 downloads and no more online streaming. Torrenting is amazing and I welcome you new people to the world of it.
