I live in a rural area. My mailbox is about 1 mile away, in a row of about 30 other mailboxes. These mailboxes are in a secluded area and crack-heads, kids, poor people have taken to going through them and stealing mail. A few of us have locking mailboxes, but over the weekend, someone actually pried mine open, but luckily I check mail every day.

$100 and a new mailbox later, I came up with a devious plan for revenge.

I filled a ziplock baggie with antifreeze and Ty-D-Bowl, The blue toilet cleaner is a concentrated dye that will permanently stain anything it touches and the antifreeze will keep it liquid as it's cold where I live.

I used silicone sealant and glued the baggie of dye inside a flat box, sealed the box in a way that to open it means rupturing the inner baggie and spewing dye all over whoever opens it.

We have many mailboxes that have been abandoned over the years. I am going to put a bogus address on one of these empty mailboxes and plant the dye-box in it.

Anyone who opens this package is in the wrong, so I don't feel sorry for who gets it. The contents are not harmful unless swallowed. Anyone see a downside to this plan? I have the package ready to go and plan on placing it today. The thieves seem to love hitting us on holidays, as many of us take trips and mail piles up...thoughts?
