Defeat a Kryptonite Bike Lock

It's amazing how this story has escalated, really touched a nerve. I first heard of it over at Boing Boing earlier this week, then it circulated at work (we probably have more than an average number of bike commuters), and now the front graphic story of nytimes.com.

Paging David Cross:
"There was murmuring on various Web sites, and so I decided to go home and pick up a pen and see it if works," said Benjamin Running, a graphic designer who lives in downtown Brooklyn. "Sure enough, within 30 seconds I had broken into my $90 lock. I was in awe. My jaw literally dropped to the floor. It was so easy." [My emphasis.]
Oh, shit, dude. Wow—so, what did you do about your disembodied jaw?
