According to Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Tom Colella, 60, was fired from his job in Australia last year after he was dodging work to spend time golfing. This month a workplace tribunal called the Fair Work Commission found that the electrician had been fired for good cause: He had been ditching work while on the clock.
But how did he get away with it for so long?
Colella turned an empty bag of Twisties cheese curls into a Faraday cage.
A Faraday cage blocks electromagnetic fields. 19th century scientist Michael Faraday found that an enclosure lined with conductive material, such as the foil-lined interior of the snack bag can keep charges out.
Colella used the knowledge as a way to block signals to his company-mandated, GPS-enabled personal digital assistant which tracked his movement. In other words, he put GPS in a bag of Australian Cheetos to keep his bosses from tracking his whereabouts while he went golfing.
For the time being Colella, appears to be working as an Uber driver.
