Learn to make decent passwords maybe ?
(ending up with 157 billion years..... the realistic way being around a few days with enough comp working on it, but 7h on ONE comp is pasthetic.... like a 5 letters password probably take longer than that ).

Too bad most people who ACTUALLY get hacked (Not tricked into being stupid and giving out their password) don't get hacked through a password. It's usually an email that was taken advantage of and was used to get your info, or gained access to and used to reset your password to something else, that's all they need is an email.

Sure, passwords are important, but I wouldn't really take this sites word on what it says and change mine just because it says it'll take some nerd a few seconds to crack it. If they really want it badly enough that they're willing to brute force it for 6 years then they can have it.
I also find it funny that this site documents the "most secure" passwords too, if they're known to be an awesome password then it subtracts from the value because more people are likely to use it and therefore it loses security.

Also, did you get this from Vsauce?

Except it won't be "6 years" but "a few minutes" because they'll use dozens of comps/specialized processors to do that (like a cluster of PS3 with their weird multi core proc that is uber great for that kind of operations, or using GPU that are surprizingly better than cpu for it).

The only thing you need is "how important are your data, and how long you need them protected".
As long as your password stand long enough for it to be "useless" (either because it's been changed or because the data is now irrelevant) you are fine, but people REALLY needs to learn the basics of computer/accounts security, it's easy and can make your life QUITE MORE EASIER without suffering from bad/painful surprises too often.
