1.56 - The One with the extra security

I picked up The Longest Yard on DVD today...and I had a little more trouble openning it than usual. As you know when you buy a new DVD they are shrink wrapped...plus they have those annoying stickers on all sides of the package for "security purposes". Oh and they have those magnetic things inside that need to be demagnetized in order for you to walk through the doors. Now I'm taking off the plastic wrap...then the stickers...and I notice the one on the side where you open the DVD case is Red...it reads SECURITY DEVICE ENCLOSED. and in small letters underneath: To Open: Remove this Label, Tabs, Twist off & Discard. It was arrows pointing to the tabs that are on the side of the DVD case. I'm not sure why they put them there...its just another thing to remove from the package...how secure do they need to make the DVD case? If someone was wanting to steal the DVD...I'm sure that they would find a way to do it...do they think that by adding 2 tabs that are part of the case will deter a potential thief? Or...perhaps its a child proof DVD case....whatever it is...to me...its annoying...

for those who are keeping track...my internet is still buggy...waiting until Friday....
