ROFL, I would like to think you would give me the credit of knowing it's not the original ink

Yes I did, lol. It's just when people say "show us a pic", I tend to think "ok, it's a pen, looks just like one in a magazine", lol. Now I admit it's 20 years old, BUT, they haven't changed the design, so, looks just like one in a magazine

"The Mythbusters were able to trick a biometric fingerprint lock by fabricating latex and ballistic gel appliqués of an authorized (viz. enrolled) thumbprint worn over a live thumb. Supposedly, the lock not only read thumbprints, but also measured body temperature, galvanic skin response and a pulse. "

yeah, I never saw that episode and believe them, but it probably depends on the build quality too. I'm sure there are ford fiesta models of the deadbolts and the ferrai models too

I don't think the local crooks are that sophisticated, and those that are definitely would not go to that much trouble to get into my house
