So today I mentioned Bitcoin to my friend. He responded immediately "You shouldn't do that on the school's network, the FBI will get you. Anyway, wasn't that banished a year ago?"

How can I tell people the truth in less than a couple minutes? What should I say if I am confronted with this again? What is the easiest, fastest way to explain Bitcoin to a commoner?

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

He actually said "banished". This is a pretty smart kid who I would not have expected to say something like that.
How did Bitcoin even acquire this connotation, anyway?
