actually my father one time, after his car had been broken into 4 times in a month at his work (it was a bad neighborhood, put a big ribbon tied present package in his back seat and left it there. Sure enough someone broke in and stole it. Inside he had placed a nice copperhead snake wink

its a siren that you put INSIDE the cabin of the car...but instead of a normal alert noise or whatever, it emits a VERY loud high pitched sound...wires up with your alarm. If anyone is gonna try to steal my shit again by smashing a window or sth...they will fucking earn their keep. angry

sorry just writing about this makes me angry again...
