I've just been having a general browse around t'internet as you do and came across this:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4116194/Little-known-Silent-Solution-enables-danger-call-999-isn-t-safe-speak-phone.html

I've checked around and I can't find any reason why this isn't accurate.  I don't remember it ever being mentioned on TV at all.

This is interesting and a little :teehee

There must have been somebody in Sothebys in on it, how else could they have got the timing of the shredding spot on? :shrug
So...will the buyer still have to pay up? Is it now worth twice as much?! I suspect it might be actually!

:teehee What a prank!

As for the little Utah boy - brilliant.  I hope his parents don't leave money or cards lying around in future (or at least they leave the shredder switched off!).
