Won’t exactly help your cause, but this video shows just how easy stealing a bike can be: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGttmR2DTY8&feature=plcp

Here in Holland bicycles are so common (there’s more bicycles than people) that pretty much everyone has several experiences of stolen bikes. For me, I had a bike stolen from the shed once when I was 12 or so. One shrugs and gets a new secondhand one for a handful of tenners.
Since I moved to the city (for uni) two years ago, it’s gotten even more common. I’ve always had mine locked to earth and made sure it was harder to take than the next guy’s, but many of my peers have had multiple bikes stolen.
The feeling sucks, but it’ll blow over
The theft stealed mine while I was looking out of the window..but I was with my GF and “busy” .. I let him go
So you have your priorities right – that’s better than someone stealing your GF
I don’t use my bike to commute full stop, I go out on trails and then it’s back locked in my house.

I had my mountain bike stolen off my front porch a few months ago.
get a better lock next time and don’t leave it for long times.. maybe steel lock wont be broken
