Matryoshka, are commonly called nesting dolls in America. I don’t know what the literal translation of the word is. With my basic grasp of languages I can guess that it comes from matriarch or has a common root to it. I like the sound of it better than nesting doll, so I use it on the rare occasions it comes up. Which leads to me needing to explain what it is about half the time. There’s certainly value in being understood by way of using common language, but it gets so boring after a while. Uncommon words spice things up. If memory serves Animal Crossing actually calls nesting dolls matryoshka. Which means that a little chuck of gamers know what it means at least. They are my people. I’m not sure if it has been called that in every iteration of the game though. I’m not even sure when they first appear. I found a set on my first day of New Horizons.
Anyway, on the subject of safes, it’s interesting to research how easy, or difficult, it is to get in to them. If youtube is any indication a dedicated person can get in to damn near anything in a remarkably short time, provided they have some tools and knowledge. I studied locksmithing for a while because I thought that might be a job I could tolerate. It’s basically thievery repurposed into a legitimate business. Depending on how you look at it at any rate. Most of the time it’s faster and more cost effective to just break a lock if it’s not part of the structure. The real value of a safe seems to be, in many cases, that in order to break in you run the risk of losing the valuables. Designing locks is one of those things where you have to balance the desire for safety and the knowledge that the end user may need to break in to their own thing at some point, because humans are forgetful. I know that I’ve broken into my own things way more often that someone else has. You lose a key, forget where you put the password. So then it’s either picking the lock, or breaking it off. Easy internet access has made that easier than ever before.
Ages ago this actually happened to a guy I worked for. We managed to get the safe open & there was a smaller safe inside of the first one. It was considerably newer than the outer safe. In the end the stuff inside was just some papers and things that were valueless to people other than the original owners. No stacks of cash, or jewels, like you would hope. I guess one mans treasure can be another mans trash too.
