I think you mean 'Sweet" because "sweat" is the salty water that your body emits in aid to cool you down when you are starting to dehydrate.
Last I checked, sweating is like the act dehydrating, it doesn't prevent dehydration. It does, however, help keep you cool, as you said.

Ha ha. Found one of those small padlocks like #3 in my desk drawer. Had it open in about 30 seconds.
That's pretty slick. And yes, you could just clip the bolt, but picking locks the hard way kind of makes you feel like a badass (and doesn't permanently damage the lock).
Alright, first report. It's been an hour and a half, and I've given it over a dozen tries. Lock still remains locked. Admittedly this is my first time picking a lock and the tools aren't the greatest, but it's still disheartening. Any advice?
wow, awesome

I am in high school and in the summer  work in the school as a janitor. We found that the best way to open locks that we don't have the key for is bolt cutters. Nice video.

thanks for posting this, it was my second attempt at picking locks and your method worked!
