Not only does wearing a camera around your neck like this look silly, it also allows clever thieves to steal your lens right from under your nose. All they have to do apparently is ask for directions and stand uncomfortably close to you during the exchange. [via]

This would never happen to me mainly because any stranger that stands that close to me in conversation — even if they’re looking over a map with me — is bound to be on the fast lane to a punch in the face. I feel bad for this tourist, but then again I don’t because I feel like he should have at least noticed the weight change around his neck.
