Maker Faire lock picking May 22, 2016

Posted by stuffilikenet in Awesome, Geek Stuff, Toys.


I spent most of yesterday helping young people learn how to pick locks teaching young people to walk through walls with prestidigitation. I forgot how easy it is to pick locks, but the young people reminded me and it was quite fun. The Open Organization of Lockpickers or TOOOL sponsored this event, provided locks and cylinders and tools and the sort of spiritual guidance that any lockpicker needs, especially the sage advice to never pick any locks but ones you own and never to pick a lock that you depend on because you can destroy it. Afterwards there was a lovely dinner with the genteel companionship of genius because most of these TOOOL guys are really bright and have been at this a long time. It was great fun and I look forward to doing it again next year perhaps.


Sorry about the strange wording; I dictated that mess on the way to Maker Faire Sunday morning.  Google’s voice recognition still needs some work.
