In my 30+ year-old building, the storage lockers are made from wooden slats. Some of my neighbours have put big, expensive locks on doors that you could pull apart with the back of a hammer. I've got a $4 lock from the local hardware store.

Needless to say, I don't store anything particularly valuable in there. If someone is that interested in my worn winter tires or old bicycle, I'm not going to fight them for it.

Then again, I'm not squirrelling away classified documents.

OTTAWA - The Royal Canadian Mint has announced a black ringed two-dollar coin featuring the 96-year-old Queen on one side, and the polar bear that killed and devoured her on the other.
"As many Canadians know, Her Majesty took a yearly pilgrimage to the North Pole to hunt a polar bear and eat its heart for strength," a spokesman for the Mint said. "But, well, time makes fools of us all."
The black ring is meant to invoke the image of a mourning armband, although the spokesman said the toonie is open to interpretation.

"The intention of this coin is to bring the nation together. Monarchists can honour Elizabeth II's service to the Commonwealth, while those who want to see the monarchy abolished can simply flip the coin over and admire the creature that finally brought the old bag down."
As an additional feature, exposing the coin to a blacklight will reveal a red blood splatter symbolic of the titanic struggle between Queen and beast.
"In tribute to the wide variety of atrocities committed in the name of the throne, each coin is uniquely violent," the spokesman said. "And yes, the grain on the tiny patches of fur are directly taken from the many bears Her Majesty single-handedly slew in epic battle over the decades."

Canadian numismatists are praising the design, with many calling it the Mint's best product since the 1981 quarter that paid tribute to Marshall McLuhan's caribou goring.
"This is going to be a treasured heirloom," one coin collector said. "Plus, any delay in getting Charles on our coins is a good thing."

When I hear about the coup attempt in Germany & the desire of these violent extremists to insert Prince Heinrich XIII of Reuss as the leader after a planned execution of the German chancellor, it sounds ludicrous, laughable. But that's the thing: These people are deadly serious.
Because the plots of many of these anti-democratic extremists seem so ludicrous, they have the ability to succeed because the public--and too many leaders--don't take them seriously enough. This same tendency is how Trump got as far as he did.

Oldest DNA reveals life in Greenland 2 million years ago

NEW YORK (AP) - Scientists discovered the oldest known DNA and used it to reveal what life was like 2 million years ago in the northern tip of Greenland. Today, it's a barren Arctic desert, but back then it was a lush landscape of trees and vegetation with an array of animals, even the now extinct mastodon.
