So it appears businesses & orgs are getting smarter about water theft... Another good reason to carry bolt cutters :)

Damn that's crazy. I suppose if you had a Leatherman you could still turn it on high enough to make it leak... But yeah, that's some cold shit

I can see people getting pissed off about this and breaking the % ##% outa those faucets.

Just smashed with a brick of something. Shooting H20 like a fire hydrant.

On a side not there are still bathroom sinks at public restrooms... just get one of those hose adapters.

cant you unlock master locks like that without breaking them by using a tin can?

Forget the bolt cutters; use a bump key and replace the lock when you're done. They'll never figure it out.

On a side note: you can always defeat those hose bibs by loosening the gate valve itself.

Certainly very cool. I've bookmarked It

just search on youtube padlock with no key. theres things you can do i guess with a battery or paper clips, you can fake lock one with a rubber band. theres tons of stuff you can do with them. look into it.

Shimming the detents? That's pretty clever! though the quality of the machining on the lock is going to affect your ability to do that greatly.

Not to mention how the bar actually locks into the body can vary, but for knock off and low grade master locks it's a great idea!

yea if you really wanted to, you could look into several different ways to do it. even those nice hefty looking ones are really pretty much the same. just look up other videos on it.

You should find an identical lock and buy it. Then cut off the offending lock and replace it with your own just to fuck with them.

bastards. with $2 worth of super glue and toothpicks you can render this lock (and many others) permanently jammed and hopefully the person who has to cut the damned thing off will think twice about replacing it. also you can jam a lock a lot faster than cutting one and you don't have to carry "burglary tools".

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $15.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $15.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $15.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $15.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I feel uncomfortable with all of the transphobic micro-aggressions being thrown around here lately. I also feel uncomfortable standing up in defense of trans folk, me included, in fear of developing discourse without the consequence of proper accountability.
