Everyone else is talking about the Harlem Shake and here I am trying to figure out how to make an easy $3mill:

Bulletproof glass manufacturer 3M Security Glass placed this advertisement at a bus stop. There's apparently $3 million in cash inside there, behind their bulletproof glass. If you can break it, it's yours.

If you are allowed to do whatever to get to the money, I'd bring a blowtorch or some liquid nitrogen.

Maybe a huge dose of Batman's exploding gel would do the trick?

Thermite... simple, easy, burns though tank armour, and very inexpensive to make.

PS: just be willing to loose some of that $3M

I'm fairly sure you can't just go in there and apply explosives to the glass. They probably mean with nothing else, otherwise all kinds of people would be there with assault rifles shooting it up.

Well, for one thing, I imagine you have to use a message that is legal. Discharging a firearm within city limits is a crime. So is setting off explosives without a suitcase full of permits.

Here's the article with the particulars.

Well they aren't proving anything by showing bullet proof glass but all you can do is punch or kick it to try and break it.

Apparently it's regular glass with a thin layer of their new special coating.

Still doesn't prove too much. It's a lot harder to break glass in real life than on TV.

Yeah, it says you can only use your feet. They're not risking a whole lot.

Who said anything about Explosives? Thermite is non-explosive, and fully legal to make and use.

After all it's just powdered aluminum, which can be ground down from anything from pop cans to the foil you wrap your spuds in when you cook'em.

Add that Powder to some ground up rust (Iron Oxide) in equal parts, and you have Thermite.

From there, you just apply it along a seem at the top, and put a road flare to it to ignite it.

Instant 2000 degree stream of liquid metal that will burn through most things. Including whatever Safety film they have over that glass.

Oh, I'm sure you'll have to take precautions, such as set up some fire retardant canvas partitions around it, and warn spectators away. But aside from that, you should easily be able to break into the enclosure and be about $2M richer.

Somebody could possibly line the bottom of his/her shoe with a special glass-breaking tip. :D

Except that you have to break it with your feet... As was mentioned already and linked.

Well, then it's a flawed argument... people aren't just going to use their Feet to try and kick shit down... If a mob can't get through a barrier with fists and feet, they'll find weapons. I'm not saying a Baseball Bat or a metal pipe would break through that glass, but hey, you can never tell what a mob will bring to a mob.

Or hey, What about dedicated attackers. This is Security Glass, you'd think they'd put it in places that need to be secured against some kind of Violence. They should expect everything from a Pick and Sledge hammer, to more exotic wepons.

Right now, the only Security this Glass is providing is to what's probably fake money, inside Foot and Shoe resistante Glass...

They're not trying to make an argument, they're trying to get free publicity.
