Burglar deterrent

Inspired by my large friend's washing line.

One of my friends is 6'6" and built like a brick out-house. Simply looking at his washing line is a mighty deterrent for any would-be burglar. Only a homicidal maniac would risk meeting him at the top of the stairs.

I suggest that us average size people throw some over-size laundry in with our usual wash so burglar reconnaissance may well deem the house too risky.

       Or indicate "bring a bigger gun." But then again, thats just the criminal in me talking.

       Something like this was in a Reader's Digest once. Ladies in the laundromat were complaining about guys hitting on them, and the cutest girl said she never had that problem, then she pulled a HUGE pair of pants out of the dryer.
