Is this really an unpickable lock?

(Thanks to Squelchtone for tweeting this)

Is this lock unpickable? Possibly, but that doesn't mean what you might think it means. Lock picking is only one type of attack one can perform on a lock. It doesn't mean the lock can't be bypassed in some other way.

Maybe impressioning would work. Here's a video by Deviant Ollam showing a 6 year old performing an impressioning attack on a lock.
