People Are Sharing The Best Hiding Places To Hide Your Valuables From Thieves This article has a few tasty little items in it, but, unfortunately, they're all busted. Once somebody posts a "secret" it isn't a secret anymore. That means you can't trust these methods, and if you're already using one because you invented it, you might want to consider making a change. Ye olde key in a rock doesn't work anymore, especially when it's the only plastic rock in the front shrubbery. Neither do a lot of other over-advertised gags like fake wall plugs and soupless soup cans. I have some little gags I cooked up but they'd be worthless if I told anyone about them. So I can't tell anyone that I used to store my machine guns under the local police chief's driveway. Not that I ever did. I mean, I never even met the guy. Face-to-face, anyway. Honest.
