Just one suggestion - I notice you use a metric ruler to cut the "key", so you should mention that.

99% of the world ouside the US uses metric.

Exactly. The meter is also arbitrary, as you can see of the the definition by wavelenght which is complicated like pi. The real stupid is the multiplicators.

12inches=1foot 3foot=one yard but not 1000yards=1mile.

And seamiles unequal landmiles even different landmiles and pounds simply totally stupid as shit.

You re lucky that ther are microprocessors that can easily count ounce pounds(and stones EN).

Our only left over from babylonian ages(really!) are seconds minutes(60)and hours(24). The French failed to introduce the 100hour 100min clock.

Well, you have peaked my interest far more than this recycled Ible amongst a list of plagiarized ideas.

I took the liberty of simplifying your first equation, "An arbitrary meter is equal to the definition of wavelengths which is also equal to Pi?" I don't even see how you begin to solve that without using multiplication.

Why would it make more sense for a mile to be 1000yrds, knowing 3'=1yrd? I am guessing since you know French history, you probably used Pascal's Triangle to get here somehow, I'm curious how.

"Seamile", is not a thing. "Landmiles", nope. I am not following your jump from "landmiles"(again, not a thing) to "pounds", and why these are also stupid. Although, strangely I can agree with you on "landmiles".

You have no appreciation for punctuation, so I assume "ounce pound" is not a new compound word. Not sure luck is the feeling one gets about a microprocessor's ability to "count" either. I would rate the ability to spell check much higher.

Seems as though you are "really" serious about the Babylonians only leaving us with time increments, so I guess we are ignoring Astronomy, religion and the idea of ascension, bookkeeping, written laws/agreements, etc...

So will the US.

But I'm guessing 80% of Instructables' readership are in the US.

make that 60%

Make that 70

crasstafari... are you talking about all those countries that HAVE NOT landed a man on the moon?

Killing me with the THROW/THROUGH thing. Not really into regurgitated "hacks" thing to be honest.

the metric ruler is NOT used to measure but for a straight edge this works good on some locks but there are locks that are to tight for this to work

nice

This didnt work for me...but the angle grinder did! :)

I;m afraid someone who sees this would go around unlocking Bikes etc

The bad guys already know all these tricks. Did you know you can open a Kryptonite bike lock with a pen barrel? It was only a recently that bike owners found out what the crooks knew for years. If you know the trick, you can guard against it

thats pretty awesome but shockingly too easy (hmm)

i dont get it

Coowul . From the UK cough

you should maby not have any padlocked valuables... if someone else sees and decides they wanna rob you/others = \
