You could use this to keep your roommate from stealing your weed!

The only thing I take exception to is the tilt switch that he says is a $.50 part from the internet. I doubt you could buy just one of those things from anywhere, so you're basically dealing with a $6 tilt-switch from Radio shack. ....and then this becomes a $7.50 alarm, and it's not as cool as it was when it was just $2.

Well it was, but it's been hanging on that pegboard since 1997, and the sun has all but faded the gold plating away.
