Amused that the emergency credentials

Amused that the emergency credentials stash for the biometric secured area includes a rubber Halloween severed hand.

Pretty much all anatomical regions are available in rubber or rubber-like analogues.

Some people would enjoy the rectal scanners.

This is why I've advocated for rectal scanners for security. You REALLY have to want in to even attempt hacking it.

Don't be surprised if the rubber hand actually works.

I remember a "biometrically secured" data center in Nashville was by-passable by popping paper through the gap in the double doors, setting of the internal motion sensor which unlatched the magnetic door locks. They replaced those sensors with heat sensitive ones, which prompted the popping though of several sheets of paper, one on fire. Luckily there was nothing flammable on the other side.

Best security measure: Paranoid and nosey NOC sysadmin. Security guards are too gullible and aren't smart enough to know when you should not be doing what you are doing.
