[Cryptography] XKCD on rubber-hose crypto

It does describe rubber-hose cryptography, but in XKCD's typical fashion it
doesn't reference the existing name and the animator presents it in a
vacuum, to the point that people don't use the term "rubber-hose crypto",
it's "XKCD wrench crypto"

That slightly annoys me. That's all.
