When you’re locked out of your house:

“Freon is available at most computer stores. Buy a can of screen duster, turn it upside-down, and you’ve got it in liquid form. It’s cold enough to crystallize the metal in many commercial locks. A hammer can take care of the rest.”

When you need – ahem – privacy in an elevator:

“Take surveillance cameras, for example — you can disable one by shooting a laser at it and overloading the light-sensitive chip.”

When you want to skip work:

“If you want to empty a building, pulling a fire alarm is useless; no one pays attention unless they’re actually on fire. A bomb scare next door to your target strikes the right balance — everyone clears out and then pays attention to the other building.”

When you’re feeling jealous:

“To build a listening device, you need a crappy phone with a mic that picks up everything. But you want the battery power and circuits of a better phone. It’s a trick you learn when the purchasing office won’t spring for a bug.”

When you realize your only friends are on Twitter:

“If you wanna make a friend, solve a problem for them. No problem to solve? Create one.”
