In case you don't follow nerd news. A security bug in a blah blah blah may have compromised your passwords all over the internet.
Important passwords to change;

Nearly all email except for AOL and Apple. If you're using AOL... (insert joke.)
Your Steam account
Your Minecraft account
Dropbox
Anything related to Google

its more complicated than that horse. you gotta wait until the sites update themselves before changing your passwords or that password is just as compromised as your previous one. Not to mention

1. 2/3 of the internet use what heartbleed can get yeah with. so really unless someone has a grudge on you and is hunting you down your money is fine.

2. This bug is more than 2 years old. so if it was incredibly terrible it would have got us by now.

though yeah it never hurts to be safe so I did in fact change some of my passwords (even though I don't use credit or bank or money in general on my accounts so if a hacker would get me he would have jack sh&%)
One frying pan is all I need to re-enact 300 in a server for 24.
