Even with those four numbers there are countless possible combinations. Good luck with figuring out which one is the right one you punk.
It’s pretty likely that it’s a four digit number, and as there are four digits chosen there, that means that there cannot be any repetition. This means that there are:
n!/(n-4)! possible orders. As ‘n’ is 4 (number of digits available). 4!/0! which becomes 4x3x2x1/1 which simplifies to 24. That means that there are 24 possible combinations of codes. This would take you about two or three minutes to input all possible codes.
Unless an alarm goes off if you don’t get it right in 3 tries.

Kick the door in.
Well ‘technically’ the code is most likley 1970. Statistically, a majority of people, when told to choose a 4 digit code will choose their birth year. And this key pad is obviously a few years old to put it nicely, so that’s most likley it.
Some Sherlock Holmes just went down over here.
No, no, no. Don’t base your deductions of psychology. Let’s talk chemistry. When you first press a button, there’s more of the natural oils on your skin, and therefore it wears down the numbers on the keys faster. Obviously 0 is the first one, then. Try 0791 first.
It got better.
And this is why the Sherlock fandom could either rule the world or end it….
Close, but not quite, I think. People will almost always choose a number they can remember. What’s memorable about 0791? Try 0719 - a birthday, 19th of July. That is more likely.
Those deductions are great and all, but unnecessary.
The light is green.
The door is already open.

the real questions
We are forced to live in a system that steals from us daily, Kill snitch culture.
Important things to keep in mind!
- never take from ‘mom and pop’ type store. Its likely you’ll actually harm them, whereas taking from a walmart wont effect much.
- never take items that a worker is assigned to monitor (usually super expensive items), theyll be in trouble for it. and its usually a minimum wage worker and usually they lose hours or pay, or they even get fired.
- similar to the above, never take things that are usually locked up for the above reason
- if its a store you know gives their near-expiration products to workers/charity, try to avoid taking the near expiration products.
- if youre taking clothing, avoid leaving hangers. it sounds weird, but itll make it seem like it was more likely an error in the computer than a theft, since the empty hanger sitting there will seem suspicious.
- also for clothing, try not to take more than one item at once, as it will look suspicious if theres 10 medium shirts missing, and it won’t be written off as just a stocking error. and it will lead to workers being penalized
- basically just always consider ‘will this harm a worker’ and if the answer is yes then dont do it
like i was homeless for a while when i was younger and i tried to follow those guidelines to avoid doing harm to people who were probably not much better off than me while trying to get food for myself.
NO NO NO NO NO.
this is WRONG and IGNORANT and there is no such thing as harmless stealing. You ALWAYS hurt the minimum wage employee and even the lower level members of management that are only making a few bucks more than the employees.
"….taking from a walmart wont effect much." I currently work for a walmart, and before that i worked for a target and this is the biggest lie in this post. the more theft that takes place in the store, the more our hours are cut and the more firings that take place. There are signs in our break rooms to encourage us to report theft for this reason. Stores will never hide the ways that theft hurts employees. For example, during last year’s holiday season there was an unusually high level of theft going on and we’d find empty packages and hangers everywhere. During that january they cut our hours to a grinding halt and some weeks i didn’t get over 15 hours because Walmart needed to cut back from the money it lost in the holiday season. 30 hours in 2 weeks wasn’t shit when i was trying to pay bills and make rent and keep myself afloat, and this is even with me making over the min wage. At Target, i wouldn’t do more than 5 hour shifts twice a week during all the thefts there.
Not only does that affect our earnings, it also takes a toll when they only schedule one person per department and have 3 cashiers on schedule. Walmart is especially notorious for this and will leave the employees to pick up the slack. Not only do we end up underpaid but also overworked.
Sure, major retailers have insurance policies in place to replace stolen or lost merchandise, so the store isn’t at much of a loss but the employees still face repercussions. This kind of bullshit is being circulated around tumblr as if stealing is a harmless and righteous action of protest but it’s not. so yeah FUCK YEAH i WILL report the asshole that is taking from the store, and i will get A.P. on your punk ass because it’s not right that we have to suffer for you to be edgy.
TLDR: you will ALWAYS affect the employees.
THIS - FUCKING - THIS. THANK YOU SO FUCKING MUCH
because walmart’s theft spiked at the end of the year. my mom’s hours were cut and no one got the bonus they were supposed to get. we were looking forward to that bonus to pay off bills. that was a big set-back for us, so this idea that “oh let’s steal from walmart, they’re big and rich and nothing will happen” is utter bullshit.
i understand doing what you have to do when there’s no other option, but if you start spreading this shit around and encouraging people to steal when they don’t absolutely have to, don’t you fucking dare expect me to sit by, because somewhere in that store, there’s a single parent employee who’s getting their hours cut and their bonuses taken away.
"Snitch culture"? What the fuck is this, middle school?
See shit like this is why Game Theory should be taught in High School.
Otherwise you get edgy shitheads who have no idea how their actions affect others and why people act the way they do.
You get people tho think everyone is a sheeple just because they are acting in the interest of self preservation.
Reblogging for the comments because UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS SHOPLIFTING ACCEPTABLE. THERE’S A REASON IT’S ILLEGAL, YOU FUCKWITS. DON’T DO IT.
When I worked for guitar center they did ‘counts’ where they would individually scan the SKU of every item in the store to make sure all were accounted for. If a single item was missing, doesn’t matter if it’s a gibson les paul or a pack of strings, the fault fell to the person who worked in the department that day, no matter what. They get interrogated and possibly blamed, and most of the time the money comes out of their pocket because it’s recorded as a loss for the company. I’ll also add that they didn’t pay me worth shit and I was working upwards of 45 hours a week, not fun.
SO DON’T SHOPLIFT KI’m so glad other people made their rants here, this was bugging the shit outta me all day. I’m fairly sure you mafia-soundin’-ass anarchy-glorifying little cockpockets who support these shitty ideas don’t exactly have a good idea of how retail fuckin’ works. If you’re stealing and I don’t know that it’s out of absolute necessity, damn right I’m gonna say something. There’s too many shitheads who treat theft as an act of pleasure to risk harming the job security of myself or others for your utter disregard for the law. Fuck you and fuck your ideals.
While you make such good points about how walmart needs to cut hours to make up for the money lost by shoplifting, you forget that walmart made 15 billion and 17 billion in profits, in 2011 and 2012 respectively. I would literally need to stuff the entire store down my pants to make a dent in their profits. In fact, their prices are designed to cover “breakage” as it’s called by breaking bad’s Jesse.
As for the reason they punish employees for loses in theft, they do it to entice employees to catch shoplifting. it, also, draws attention away from the fact that the company that made ungodly amounts in profits pays its employees wages they can’t live on. As for the kid who’s mom lost her bonus, they were looking for whatever excuse they could find to take more money away from her.
walmart works very hard to make sure it can pay its employees as little as possible. i went to interview for a job at walmart and they had their little TV showing antiwalmart propaganda. it looped image of the walmart workers union and its $5 a month union dues talking about how the union was taking your money.
The truth is walmart is taking your money. walmart (as well as other major corporations that rob their workers) pays its workers horrid wages, finds any reason to take even more of your hard earned money, and pays far less in taxes than you do. The only money walmart gives to the government is in legal bribes of politicians. It isn’t just mcdonalds thats fighting against respectable wages.
Did you not notice that walmart cut your hours, and that walmart is paying your unjust wages? How do you not realize that walmart doesn’t want you to unionize because you’ll have more say and more voice?
Do you honestly believe what walmart tells you? How do you even know that those thefts weren’t just made up, to steal from you? Clearly, its worked before. You don’t have to believe me, but don’t believe them either.
Ask the questions, get the information, and decide the answers for yourself.
