  1. Watching a guy on Youtube who lockpicks locks in his hobby and reviews them. It shocks me how easy "unpickable" locks are.

    1. @adiwan Bill from Bosnia? Yeah that channel (if it is still around) is made of pure awesome, and worry. You'd be amazed with how little practice on locks you own yourself, most bought for that very purpose, you are ready to tackle the big leagues. By which I mostly mean everything at work that they lost the key to. Excluding money trays/cases, those things for some reason mostly come with dual 'teeth' on the keys. But you can make a bumpkey for those if you really cared, too bad that making a bumpkey for just one is no guarantee, especially if you do not have a brother/sister case/tray to copy off of. Also I can open them with just a hammer, and 2 screwdrivers and they are way too cheap to replace anyway.

      I wonder what Bosnian Bill is up to these days.

      1. @drinkingpony It was this channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm9K6rby98W8JigLoZOh6FQ that I watched. I don't know how exactly I came to this channel but I guess it was a video about gallium (just a random search) that linked to one of his videos that showed how gallium broke down the aluminium casing of a lock.

        1. @adiwan Nice channel.

          Also Gallium is a fun metal.

          1. @drinkingpony I can recommend this https://www.youtube.com/user/featony/videos too. Dry fun humour, snappy and creative editing, and lots of metal (the material).

            1. @adiwan Metal the material as opposed to ? Aluminum of 2780 Kelvin ( rough estimate ) ? Is gas even a material ? And now that I have done some really cringy guesses, might as well throw in the 3D graphic and shader API of Apple.

              That channel looks like an absolute blast though. DIY sonic welding, even though that is going to be a failure ( it says so on the tin ) probably a rather fun video.
