We've all seen the videos of thieves shamelessly stealing packages off of people's porches. Now someone is fighting back.
That someone is former NASA-JPL engineer/current science YouTube star Mark Rober and he ain't playing nice. He's spent six months crafting a beautifully over-engineered revenge package that looks like an Apple product. After the thief nabs it, it first gloriously sprays a pound of glitter when opened and then follows up by spurting out fart spray every 30 seconds. Oh yeah, it also has several phone cameras inside recording it, so we get to watch it all go down. He says it might be his "Magnum Opus" and I may have to agree. It's pretty crazy.
"I've officially peaked. This was one of the most arduous builds in a long time just because there were so many single points of failure for the system (means LOTS of testing/tweaking). Thanks for watching and sharing with anyone you know who has had a package stolen."
Now, if you don't have building skills like Mark (and who does?), you can do what I do. I put junk I no longer want in empty boxes, tape it back up and leave it on my porch. (It's not my idea, I saw some meme that's been going around.)

I use a Dowco cover on my treasured bike. I decided to try their easy to integrate motorcycle cover alarm. The Dowco Weatherall guardian cover survives in marine environments. I live in a densely populated beach community wherein an alarm is probably not a bad idea. This one is simple, loud and will probably surprise […]

There’s no shortage of CRMs out there for large corporations, e-commerce companies, and booming startups to utilize. Think Salesforce, for example. But if you’re running a small business of ten employees max, there’s no way it makes sense to invest in an expensive, robust option like that. You’re better off using your old system of […]
Website building apps are all about one thing — helping you craft a great-looking, fast-running website without having to mess with all that back-end code. However, nobody wants their site to look just like a template, so customization is all but a must. So how easy is it to make those changes and still not […]
In our modern world, our usual first approach to combating an oncoming cold is to medicate it into oblivion. Sometimes, that carpet bombing pharmaceutical attack plan can knock out the congestion and discomfort of an illness before it settles in. But there’s always something to be said for trying to put down the effects of […]
