Karmic Justice?

Maybe a little too much justice, but hey...

I bought a new gun safe two days ago. I've seen a sticker somewhere that I'd like do get.


"WARNING this safe contains black powder. Do not attempt to cut or weld safe. May cause explosion.

I could only imagine how good one would explode being confined like that.

Nice FJ60 in that building. Cousin's comment that he was 'just trying to find himself'. Seems odd.

Yeah but you can't exactly ask for a manifest.

"Hey, I'm breaking into your place next Thursday at midnight. Can you tell me what I can find so I can plan my operation more efficiently and maybe hit the bar before closing?".

I was thinking in the context of chasing out a place. I am guessing these people had done that, but then they added fire to an unknown.

Oh well. I'd love to say I'm sorry but I'm too busy laughing.

How can you say that? Fireworks? Building and other stuff? Hell, even the cutting torch is worth something not to mention the time to put out the fire.

Building looks fine, just a bit dusty. Fireworks were pretty cheap last time I checked, and the cutting torch may still be usable. The owner is still out the safe though, so I guess something of value was lost.

I had to read that like three times. I don't know if Aklim was laughing about the extraneous "h", but that's what had me puzzled.

Too bad someone wasn't there to chase them out of the place, they'd still be alive and the guy would still have his safe and fireworks.

For some reason it made me think of the classic Bond anti-theft device on his Lotus...

You will need to have the Sticker printed in several Languages in case the Criminals are non-English Speakers.

In todays legal system if you don't put a enough Languages on the Sticker and someone only understands the Language you neglected to put on the Sticker gets hurt His Lawyer is going to say you set a trap for People who speak the Language that you did not include.
