When Adam Savage, the tech-savvy host of the popular TV show “MythBusters,” posted a picture on Twitter of his Toyota Land Cruiser, he was sharing a lot more information than he realized.

Hence, he revealed exactly where he lived. And since the accompanying text was “Now it’s off to work,” potential thieves knew he would not be at home.”
