If im not mistaken, a torrent file directs your client (uTorrent in my case) to locations of files, which are in turn uploaded/seeded by others who have dloaded it already.
My question is, is there any way to extract the file location from the torrent file for a direct download - like clicking a download link on a webpage?

The answer: no. Why? You ask. There is no specific link you can link it to! The file like normal download is NOT hosted on a server. It is hosted by many different people at once and if you did somehow link it to a single person the download speeds would be terrible and you would be leaching the torrent. Meaning that the people who dl it through a webpage don't contribute anything to the torrent. They wouldn't seed if you could do it.

I think this is the real problem. Standing up to someone so fat has a couople major risks.
1)They might have a heart attack, fall on you and crush you
2)They might eat you. And not in a fun, girl-on-girl 'pics or it didn't happemn' way.

No. Direct downloads on webpages are downloaded through the http protocol. Torrent clients use a different protocol. And you can't convert them or something. Unless a seeder is running a webserver and has the file you want 'shared' on that webserver, but the chance for that is like 0.01%.
