worth more than your arm

found on this post about biometric passports

one of the things my mother taught me was that i should never wear anything on my wrist that is worth more than my arm. the idea had to do with theft of property, but as this comic shows there's a related issue for biometrics. people keep saying your biometrics can't be stolen but that's not really true - they can be stolen, and such theft can be messy.
