@Fuzzalini@hchavers@InnocuousFarmer On one of the cancer lists I am on people discuss snake oil on occasion, sometimes more often than that. I (generally fruitlessly) argue with them about this thing called science and it would probably be useful to use science based stuff as the treatments (and not, for example, apricot seed interior stuff which turns into arsenic. Yeah that will kill cancer cells, and brain cells, and heart cells, etc.) anyway I tell them science, just like gravity, works all the time - not just when we want it to. .
@AuntMean67 Keys I think are more of a removal of plausible deniability. Moves actions in the category of opportunism into more of an actively-criminal-activity category. Keeps the mildly dishonest people honest. Or, for the inept criminal, it makes it harder to be sneaky, which makes things riskier.
Most locks are crap, is what I’m saying. I have picked a few, and I’m unpracticed and bad at it, and it still wasn’t that hard.
It seems like an interesting question whether revealing key location information would have a substantial effect on security. I could imagine it going either way, especially if we’re talking about acquaintances who would be afraid to be caught snooping but not afraid to take a quick photo of keys for reproduction for easier opportunistic theft. All that effort and this person can’t even pick a lock…
That would change, I imagine, if we’re talking about locked things in the house, like in a safe, and then difficult to pick keyed locks, and if those are keys you leave behind when you go out. But house keys at rest in your house, when you are also in your house… dunno.
@ThunderChicken Yeah I do that too with my keys. Same place and do 99% of the time I know where they are. Also with my glasses and my phone. I have the same place I put them over and over too. Amazing how I can lose stuff in 2 rooms though. Who would have thunk? LOL
I have a key box I mounted inside my entry closet door. I use around 40 of the 60 hooks available. All the keys have a number of which only I have the corresponding list. It will take a dishonest person a very long time to figure out which keys are for which locks. I know because I had to run around the house figuring it out.
Currently they are hanging from a clip on my backpack since I am at work.
Tonight when I get home they will be hanging from the key hook immediately inside the front door.
BTW… they have a trackr on them… which primarily gets used to find the phone, since I can ALWAYS find my keys.
