I wonder what this descendant of wolves is up to in that disguise. I'm not sure if sheep would be able to tell the difference or not. Their reputation isn't exactly for being smart.

It certainly isn't to contain the smell

I've seen that public washroom image before and I certainly recognized the lack of privacy but I'm not sure I ever questioned why anyone bothered with transparent walls. It's an excellent question.

If the first lock doesn't stop the theft, the second and third aren't going to do it either. They're just the same preventative measure repeated multiple time. Best case scenario is if you put a ridiculous number of locks on it then maybe the thief will just consider it too annoying to steal.

If you're going to use multiple preventative measures it would be better to make them different so that if one fails maybe another won't.

I know infosec pros tend to preach forgiveness for security fuck-ups by your users, but I don't think the same holds true for nation-state attackers.

It's important not to let your need to do something override your aim to do an appropriate thing. Otherwise you're going to get an expensive lesson.

How did that get in there?

Honest, officer, I meant to get rid of that before I got here!

Security-related anxiety can play all sorts of tricks on you, and security personnel are in no hurry to make you feel better, unfortunately.

When I think about logging in I touch myself

I think this article of clothing would pair well with the keyboard pants from several years ago (I can't believe I never made a meme out of it). 

Your buttprint is your password

People keep telling us how secure biometrics are, but what's even more secure than biometrics? Weird biometrics! My password is a body part but you don't know which part.
