i'm sure the cops can image your encrypted phone and try to break the encryption offline without risking loss of data. if they can't break it now, they will simply store the data for the next 10 years until they can and go back to it then. sort of like fingerprints, DNA or any other crime scene evidence

the people who go to MIT, Harvard and other top schools aren't more intelligent than anyone else, they put the effort in. they study until they are sure they will get an A, do their homework, etc. that's why the schools are selective.

MOOC's take anyone who wakes up one day with dreams of being a top programmer. when it's time to put the work in they go back to their old ways and find reasons why they are too busy to do the work. TV, netflix, going out drinking with the Bro's, gaming
