    So we're laying in bed watching TV and my gf jokingly puts a handcuff on my right wrist. Now, mind you, these are police issue handcuffs, no unlock switch and a different keyhole. After a few minutes I get tired of having the thing stuck on there so I go to get the key on her keychain.

    Well it turns out to be the WRONG KEY! So we had to go to the POLICE STATION to get them to loan us a key to unlock the cuffs (good thing my GF works for LAPD). And I thought I was going to get some sleep before getting in line in 6 hours.

    So on the way back we stop by the Pasadena Apple store and see all the people waiting in line and yeah it is kindof pathetic.

    Completely OT, but I was viewing an apartment recently with a view to buying it; everything was immaculately clean and tidied away with not a spoon out of place.. except for a pair of pink fluffy handcuffs on a sidepress near the bed.

    Very unlikely that they were left there by accident, probably the previous owners just having a laugh.

    I was watching a documentary about prison on the History channel recently, and I was shocked to find that in prison and such, they don't consider handcuffs secure at all. Prisoners can open them all the time. Heck you can push the rachet with a regular comb. Anyways, they simply consider them a means of slowing the prisoner down, giving the guards time to react if and when the prisoner decides to get out of them and attack.

    LOL. That's the best story all day. :) I think it would have been great just to show up in line with both hands cuffed though. I'm sure you could've moved up to the first of the line as everyone freaked out and slowly backed away.

    For future reference, Zak Tools makes a great series of handcuff keys. I sell them at my law enforcement store.

    I love the idea of standing in line poker-faced with one hand hancuffed to a bed.:D

    I wish I had something to laugh about. It should be the best day ever for me because I'm off today and can enjoy the entire iDay experience -- go to the Apple Store, chat with enthusiasts, buy the iPhone, and return Saturday for free lessons. But NOOOOooooo. My visitors decided that June 29th is the ideal day to visit from out-of-town. S%$#.
