You can pick your friends and you can pick your lock…

” The big secret of lock picking is that it’s easy. Anyone can learn how to pick locks.”
– Chapter 1 – The MIT Guide to Lockpicking

Despite the inclusion of a letter from the MIT Hacker Community attempting to dissasociate itself from the guide (released into the wild without a section on the ethics of lockpicking is wrong, in their opinion), the MIT Guide to Lock Picking is a very thorough document about the ins-and-outs of… you guessed it “Lock Picking”. I’ve only skimmed it myself, but it seems to be clear and easy to follow. Personally, I have little reason to learn lock picking, but it seems like something that would be neat to learn. Hell of a party trick. :)

Also avaliable in tasty PDF or PS.
