    Yup! One winter in Vancouver they busted my side window to steal coins, and then -- BONUS FOR THE THIEVES! -- they found my snowboard. It was hidden under a blanket in the back.

    Pain in the butt! Insurance covered the snowboard. I replaced the side window myself with a junkyard one for $50.

    Too bad you couldn't bait them like this:

    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.

    Had a friend downtown Vancouver her car got broken into so often she started leaving the doors unlucked.... the dumbf&$k would still smash the side window to get in. After that she started to leave a note in the windows "doors unlocked please dont break window"
