  • For those of you that can get into the locker room, I posted a video of some locks here.

    Bear in mind that when I talk about the locks, I mention a couple that are "high quality."

    I mean they're high quality for what you'd normally find on a house. They're not really all that high quality. It's just that 95% of all locks are of that quality or lower.

    My Schlages that I mention in the video run about $160 to $200 per lock, and while that's "high quality" to me (and is better than most people have on their homes), I have friends who can pick locks costing more than 15 times that much in under 20 seconds.

    So... I'm speaking relative to myself when I say "high quality" and relative to most locks on the street. Not "high quality" as lock pickers would consider them. These are pretty cheesy locks by most picker's standards.

    Still, it's a chunk of change to toss out there on a lock, so this is about the best I've got and I don't foresee getting anything better for a long time.

        Thank you. I was pretty nervous. I'm usually a lot faster than that with those locks. I just was worried I was going to have trouble with one or something and look like an idiot.

        Plus most of the people I know that can pick locks would look at that and laugh. They're really good and many of them have been doing it for 20+ years, so that's "kid stuff" to them.

            Haha, seeing this made me think of a "talent" I have. I can pick things up with my toes. Whether it's the tv remote off the coffee table or the thing I dropped on the floor, I can get it.

              Makes me want to invest in a 2x4 and some brackets to lock the front door.

                    My wife hates it because she'll try to put her cold toes on me in bed to warm them up and I'll "grab" her ankle at the achilies and hold her foot away. She says- "Damn your strong toes!!!"

                    • Hmmm... Stumbled across this thread tonight... It's worthy of a bump...

                      Something about me, eh?

                      I grew up without my father, it's effects on me are pretty big, though I like to think mostly for the better... There are certain things I haven't done in my life, because I know what they can lead to, and those things would make me no better than my father... I'll leave it at that for now... But I am who I am, because of my father, his absence has proven to be the greatest influence anyone could ask for.

                      • I don't post here often, but i figure ill contribute.

                        When I was in Elementary school, I had trouble focusing. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with ADHD. They gave me some type of pills, it was a trip to say the least. I stopped taking them shortly after.

                        My mom died in a car crash when I was 8-10, my dad since has had 2 girlfriends. One of them dying to cancer. I've always had an extremely lenient life no curfews I could go out when i wanted and wherever.

                        I graduated highschool a couple years ago with a 1.8 gpa. If you asked any teacher at my high school they would tell you i was most likely to drop out first. One of my teachers even told me that i should just drop out stop wasting my time and apply at mcdonalds. I didn't and i graduated, one semester late due to lack of credits.

                        I started college but only got through one semester before i had to get a full time job, due to a lack of funds. I worked at a call center for a 8 month stint, worst job i've ever had. It was a for capital one, just a bunch of angry customers calling in. I now am going back to college and work part time.

                        Another interesting fact is I always think I am sick. If I have a slight symptoms of a disease i start looking it up to see what it might be. It causes me to worry and not sleep. I am sure in my head i've had every form of cancer. It annoys my friends and family because i start "investigating" my body for possible symtpoms.

                        I love the Broncos, Rockies, and the Nuggets. I also have a passion for video games and music. And i love to play the drum set.

                          I was also raised without my father. It's amazing how "liabilities" can be turned into "assets" by the right mentality and ambition. Absent fathers, histories of alcoholism, ADHD, you name it. Most things can be overcome. It's interesting to me that when I look at certain people and talk to them, I can almost always tell whether something bad that happened to them became a handicap or an asset to their life.

                          Some people are just programmed to succeed. They'll adjust, adapt and overcome. Others, it just seems like if the wind blows wrong they'll fall down and crumble, no matter how gentle the breeze.

                          • I'm a "beer glass" klepto...

                            I've taken a Sam Adams Boston Lager glass, a Denny's Beer Mug, a pint glass from McAllister's, and a pilsner from Good Time Charlie's Karaoke bar.

                            My siblings and I are children of a Methodist minister who was exiled from the ministry due to multiple infidelity allegations....which were true.

                            Broke a girl's nose while defending my younger brother in a game of church yard football.

                            Lost my first set of glasses while swimming in the Missouri river.....didn't occur to me to take them off first before diving in....
