A Brief Word about Home Security

When it comes to hiding valuables, many people opt for "diversion safes." These clever devices look like real, ordinary household objects, but are designed to hold whatever you might want to keep out of the hands of a would-be burglar.

Perhaps the most original one I've seen is the Underwear Diversion Safe from eFindOutTheTruth.com:
    The "Underwear/Brief Safe" is an innovative diversion safe that can secure your cash, documents, and other small valuables from inquisitive eyes and thieving hands, both at home and when you're traveling. Items can be hidden right under their noses with these specially-designed briefs which contain a fly-accessed 4" x 10" secret compartment with Velcro closure and "special markings" on the lower rear portion. Leave the "Underwear/Brief Safe" in plain view in your laundry basket or washing machine at home, or in your suitcase in a hotel room - even the most hardened burglar or most curious snoop will "skid" to a screeching halt as soon as they see them. (Wouldn't you?) Made in USA. One size. Color: white (and brown).
What gets me is not that someone dreamed up this idea -- as crazy as it is -- but that there are people out there willing to pay between $30 and $40 for it. I mean, why pay for something you could make yourself?

Yes, the joke is definitely on whoever pays that price for those undies! Perhaps a better idea is for everybody to blog about hiding cash in dirty underwear, so all the burglars get "wise" to it. Then we can put the money back under the mattress, and the joke's back on the burglar as he digs through all the dirty underwear.
