One sure fire way of deterring
a burglar from entering your house would be to program a tape recording
of a married couple fighting and arguing. This tape could be activated
when a robber breaks into the building. Suddenly he would hear obscenities,
a man shouting irrationally at a woman followed by the sound of thrown
kitchen items and much glass breaking. I have no doubt the burglar would
think to himself, "Hmmm, this all seems a bit dangerous, maybe I'll
try next door!"
