  1. He’s betting the security chief used his birth year as the code. I’ll leave it as an exercise to the reader to determine that date.

      • look at the image, there are only 4 warn out numbers (ONE-SEVEN-NINE-ZERO) so those 4 numbers must be the ones used. there are 24 different combinations that can be done if it’s a 4 number combination

      • It’s math. 4! = 24 which is the amount of arrangements/combinations you could achieve with 4 numbers. 4! = 4x3x2x1 = 24

  2. this is stupid, how is a person going to easy work this out. from the four warn out number spots there are still 24 different combinations to guess… and what if it’s 5 number combination with one of the numbers being pressed two times! that’s like 380+ combinations still!

  3. It could also be 0917, 0179, 0719 for birth month / day if we are talking easy codes. Or any of the other 20 as last 4 of SSN.

  4. Or they just used a solvent on four of the keys to make it seem like they have been used the most while in reality it’s a completely different set of numbers being used!! D=

    • Thank you! someone sees the obvious ploy. I wondered how far down I had to go to find someone who would question the ease of this.

  5. likely its 1970, however there is the possibility that one or more of those four numbers are used more than once. meaning it doesnt have to be a four digit code.

  6. Now, if the guy who set this up is really smart, the code is something else entirely, he just distressed those numbers a bit as a red herring.

  7. Actually, if you type any combination of 4 numbers, you trigger an immensely painful death trap. The real code is contained in an infrared pulse emitter carried by authorized personnel. It is read by the infrared sensor on the far left, cleverly disguised as a red LED. Once you have passed that layer of security, it is safe to turn the top screw 15 degrees left, then 45 degrees right, then 90 degrees left. Now the door will open, and you can proceed to biometric scanning.

  8. wow, how big are the fingers used to press these buttons! I would imaging the buttons being worn, but the plate too? This meme is poorly worded.Maybe something like “I wonder what numbers were used?”. But then it probably loses some charm, especially for the less geeky. As it is worded, the answer is not as singular as the question implies. Which is where the joke breaks down for me. So yes, if the code is only 4 digits long there are 24 combos. But as others have said, it could be more than 4 digits with duplicates. The real question that would make a better meme, “What is your password change frequency?”

  9. If you look at the wear patterns on the numbers & around the numbers, you can deduce the direction of impact/travel of the finger when striking the keys.

    If it is just 4 digits, it’s 1970. HOWEVER, if it’s longer than 4 digits we could use the wear on the keys to determin which numbers were struck the most frequently and combine that with the directional wear patterns around the keys + the regional wear on the keys to help sleuth out what the code is.


    Alternativly we can just knock the door down with brute force or breaching charges, for a Gordian solution..

  10. And I thought I after reading some comments I was the only one to came up with the idea to analyze the direction the finger must have moved across the numbers for the pattern. My first guess would have been 1790 so.

    I think the probability of a 4-digit code is very high. At least to my personal experience most codes are 4-digit codes.
