How can you pick a lock with a bobby pin?

Bobby pins are for movies, handcuffs and luggage locks, and not much else. Anything above the most basic lock imaginable is bobby pin proof really. They're just not the right type of metal or the right size and shape.They're good for handcuffs and for toy boxes though.Below is a link to a video of how to use a bobby pin to open these locks. If you're trying to get into anything above that level of lock though, you're going to need a better tool.Any lock that can be opened with a bobby pin is going to work on essentially the same principal as the handcuffs trick.

How do you adjust the metal band on a Casio PAG80T-7V Titanium Watch?

The watch band can be adjusted by removing some of the links (or adding them back). It's quite easy. If you look on the backs of the links some of them have arrows; these are the only links that can be removed. Using a straightened small paper clip, push one of the pins on the band edge in the direction of the arrow. You should be able to remove it with your fingers once it gets started. Do the same thing with the pin on the other side of the link, and the pin will fall into your hand. Once you have removed the desired number of links -- you should remove them alternating each side of the clasp -- reassemble the band by lining up two links and insert the pins, also in the direction of the arrow. You should feel friction after the pin is almost all the way in. Make sure all the pins are fully seated and you're done.

Why does friction cause a magnetic force?

I just noticed that my scissors (which I use quiet often) attracts staple pins and safety pins.

What is better a bobby pin or a clip?

It depends on the look you're going for. Bobby pins are quite invisible in your hair, but if you want to make a statement or have a cute clip that matches your outfit or mood, you should go for one. I have to admit that I have a clip addiction but since I have bobby pins I use them almost everyday. Have fun and greets from Holland! Sorry for my bad English...
