Is there a question here? If you could post less information that would be great.

The image is self-explanatory, I'd think.

I get it. Someone was foolish enough to put two locks with handles on the inside of a door with a big window rather than making the deadbolt require a key on the inside. I see it far too often. Thankfully it's not a difficult fix.

The door opens up into a summer kitchen in my second garage. It's an interior door. There's some strange things going on in this house.

Aliens in purple hats, because ice creme has no bones.

Wait, I thought the random picture thread was a lot longer?

Not the least of which is you taking pictures of some unidentified damper with what appears to be a 949 / Supermiata top-hat, mounted in a vise, in front of a door blocked by a bucket and a switchplate missing one screw, with an ethnic slur against the Polish as the thread title.

It's a VMAXX damper.

A Vmax dumpster is about 125mph, for those playing along at home.

I think a username change to 'dietcoke&jack' would be appropriate at this time.

As a former owner of turds (vmaxx) and a current owner of awesome sauce (xida). I can confirm, you cannot polish a turd, you can roll it in glitter and make it look like it's not a turd, but just beneath the surface... still turd.
