Thread: Bad idea

  1. #41
    Our little dog sleeps in the house but she sleeps so sound I don't think anything would wake her up. However no one will get in without waking us up. We have bars on every window and door. It would require a lot of noise to get through those and then the alarm would go off. Not only do we have the inside siren but one in the attic by the vent on one end of the house. That one can be heard two blocks away. I will be wide awake by the time all that happens and waiting for the intruder.

    Doesn't having bars on the windows and doors make it harder to get out if there's a fire? I'd be nervous about that.

  4. Bad Idea

    My grandfather was a city police officer in a large Midwest sity in the 1920's. In those days, any time a city officer did anything noteworthy, good or bad, his name appeared in the paper. One time my grandmother was visiting a sick friend and grandad had his service revolver under his pillow. I guess he had a rather vivid dream, because in the middle of the night,he suddenly awoke with a start and put a round through the ceiling. I have the newspaper account of the occurance, as well as many others, in his scrapbook.

    I will not sleep with one under my pillow. There is way to many variables that can come into play. Bad Idea guys

    Life is a seres of choices. You pick what you think is the greater threat. With crime what it is today I am more concerned about that than the possibility of a fire. Besides I have a way to unlatch them from the inside.

    Ok, but what about your kids? Would they be able to unlatch them if there were a fire? I understand about picking what the greater threat is, but it's still something you have to consider.

    Well, I suppose that as long as they do their job of keeping criminals out and still let you out if there's a fire, then ok. I'm not sure I'd want them though. Currently that's not an option for me because I live in an apartment and can't install them. Secondly, I live on the fourth floor, so the chances of anyone breaking in through the windows is virtually nonexistent, at least compared to the typical house.

    Onetuza, you may want to consider putting a layer or three of red gel over the lens of your light. The red color will make a much smaller impact on your night vision than will white light. Also, like the old "nuke bomber" pilots used to do, you might want to open Only your non-dominant eye until after you close the drawer. As the big, bad wolf once said, "All the better to SEE you, my dear."
