  2. That’s pretty cool to see!

  3. (nerdiest comment on Cup of Jo to date)
    I learnt this from the way you had to pick locks on Oblivion, the Elder Scrolls game… Completely fascinating though! I always wonder how many locks and keys actually end up being the same around the world.

    K.

  4. Wow! I did not know this, and to be honest had never really thought about it. But it is so clever!!

  11. Whoa, mind blown! One of those things you don’t really think about, until one day you’re like, “wait how /does/ that work, exactly?” Interesting.

  12. My hubby worked at a hardware store for a while and had to “re-key” locks all the time. It involved taking the whole thing apart and dropping in all those tiny pieces, so I DID know that’s how it works! The GIF makes it look super cool, though :)

  13. so cool.

  14. I just signed up. For 3 delicious meals for 2 people cost lesss than what it usually costs for take-out! Thank you so much for this, Jo. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for.
    Can’t wait to try it out!

  15. This is actually very cool and very pertinent to myself at the moment. I’m planning on rekeying some locks this weekend and although I’ve watched youtube videos and read instructions, this totally puts it together for me visually, thanks!!
