if it works once, it can work twice

found on there i fixed it

padlocks on the gas and trunk. at first blush it might seem like those aren't inherently bad security, but then consider the fact that the car wasn't built to use padlocks there - the real security is in how securely those pieces of metal the locks fit into are attached to the car. is it glue? are they attached with screws? i once rented a room that used this method for locking the door - the little bits of metal were attached with screws, and of course i had a screwdriver.
