common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

Anthropology prof. at Purdue, back in the '90s, (M. Anderson IIRC) went to war with West Lafayette over her "native habitat" yard.  ;D

As it happens I just met up with two friends from Cyprus today, one of whom I hadn't seen since she moved back there a little under a year ago, so this was science with a small bonus!
