This certainly counts as hobby engineering, even if the guy is a professional engineer. And it's brilliant!

Yes, saw this on the BBC News site earlier. These thieves seem to have no sense of right or wrong instilled in them. Shame it wasn't something a little more permanent.

It is unfortunate that the parcel delivery men are on piece work, they regularly dump stuff on the doorstep even when we are in, I complained once and was told that I had signed for the parcel so I must be mistaken. I obviously hadn't, the delivery guy just scrawls something on my behalf

When my chuck arrived last week the Post Office guy was able to teleport my signature to his pad saving me the cost of electricity for ringing my doorbell. Obviously very eco-conscious.

Your signature never looks like what it should with the signing pads they use anyway.

I really enjoyed that video. Excellent.

Cracking video !. Urea would have been better than glitter though. Or a hand grenade......

Regrettably the grenade would make it a one tripper.

Not a problem, you set up a production line

The guy who designed it should have also installed cans of glue spray so the glitter stuck everywhere it landed.

Those suggesting violent actions forget that they would also affect a good neighbour who tries to take the parcel in until the recipient returns home. In our street this would be much more likely than theft.

No Brian, there's a tamper switch fitted INSIDE the package. Perhaps I'm doing it wrong, I NEVER open packages left with me for neighbours.

Yes, but a good neighbour wont open it will they.

The last time I accepted a package for a neighbour, its nature was clear enough without opening. The front bumper for a car. Some plastic wrapping, no box. Neighbour appeared about an hour later explaining he had trained the (small) kids not to accept presents from strangers.

Tut Brian, it's Christmas. Fancy you ruining a perfectly good revenge fantasy by pointing out that an innocent bystander might get whacked by mistake! In this thread baddies thoroughly deserve violent painful deaths, kids never stand on land-mines, wedding parties aren't targetted accidentally by the CIA, and there are no miscarriages of justice...
I don't think anyone on this forum would really be stupid enough to booby trap a package with a grenade. It might be picked up by a child.
