Remember what you do to one bastard can be done to you - only this time it's war!

Personally, I wouldn't take the risk.

Small fridge seems the best answer.

Rhys's solution, but in liquid form (pun intended :) )

Pure Cap: Hot sauce and chili sauce specialists

OR, if he is feeling REALLY evil....

Makan's Pharmacy

Agent Picolax will do funny things to milk - but is virtually unnoticeable in orange juice.   :demon:

But if using this option, make sure you have more than one loo in the house.   ;)

There's an amusingly unsavoury anecdote which explains how you know this, isn't there?  ;)

A contact laxative?!  :o

I'd have said that going for capsaicin would be the 'nuclear option' - evidently not.

Don't forget that the fridge isn't the only area of the house to administer retribution though.
Ah but it's the only one that allows perfect deniability

Chilli toothpaste and grenades in his soap is all very funny, but is arguably all sorts of criminal.  I just made hot food and trusted to his predictable greed and larceny.

It sure was - long, but very worthwhile read ;)

I assume it's prescription only?

We had bottles of (very cheap) wine that kept randomly vanishing from our kitchen in halls. One day we half filled a winebottle with a sample, and re-corked it, and left it on top of the fridge.  Let's just say the cleaner wasn't very talkative the following Monday am ;)

Blobs of blue food colouring on cheese or margarine tends to put people off.  Best solution - do what I did and get your own 'fridge.  In my case it was a cast-off from my parents, in pretty knackered condition, but I still sold it for £10 at the end of the third year.
Never tell me the odds.

Writing "Milk experiment" on the milk was a favourite for years.  Of course, I was a biochem student back then, which added veritas.

Whoever eat my biology experiment probably ought to go to the student health centre as soon as possible.

(of course someone in the house -- or a girl- or boyfriend --  has to be doing biology)

Talking of biology experiments... when I was in school there was a particularly annoying character who always ate Pot Noodles at lunchtime. He must have done something to upset someone one day, because following a lesson on rat dissection, a certain part of the rodent's anatomy found its way into said Pot Noodle. He had no idea.

In my halls, as with all students there was a lot of betting regarding eating random crap. Eg everyone chipping in a fiver so my mate would eat a tin of a dog food. We realized that everytime you asked someone to sniff the milk to see if it was bad they'd refuse. So me and a mate washed out an old milk carton that was a month old, and filled it with fresh milk and rice pudding. Then we made a big pretend fuss of who left the old milk in the fridge etc, sloshing it around, sniffing it and pretending to retch, and then getting people to stump up 50 quid to watch me drink it. When its lumpy fake sour milk goodness was poured into a glass it did look very realistic, and the great thing was that no one was willing to sniff the milk to verify it was bad.

methylene blue

That's what we used to do..

Blackcurrant yoghurt, peel back price label, inject and reseal. Shake well and put back in fridge.

Miscreant has a blue mouth and tongue for a week or so -'nuff said

IF you have access to a syringe, this can also make an interesting soft centre to mars bars etc.

Ex-Lax can be good, especially repackaged in to a cadbury dairy milk wrapper and left slightly tucked out the way.

Generally these types of food wars are not good, small fridge in the room is safer.

Perhaps with the smoking some surreptitous use of a camera phone might suffice to convince the landlord to kick him to the kerb.
Or perhaps the time-honoured 'anonymous tipoff' to the local plod that there's some drug (ab)use going down?

The shared house that I lived in a few years ago, had one semi-self contained flat in it, it had it's own kitchenette, but shared the bathroom with the rest of us (who had our own Kitchen).

One of the renters of this "flatette" was a bit of a nuisance, nothing terribly bad, but a variety of tiresome and irritating things, that meant none of us had much time for him, including the landlord.

We found out that he had a predilection for smoking non-traditional substances, and since several of us worked at a large sensitive government establishment, which had made it quite clear that any sniff of substance abuse would result in instant suspension, we weren't too happy about this.

The landlord was informed, who in turn contacted the police and offered them a spare key to nose around the place.  They turned up one day, and knocked on his door (the inside door from the hallway into his flat) in case he was in.  He was, and answered the door whilst smoking a spliff. ;D
Actually, it is rocket science.

I have had to take Picolax on quite a few occasions before have various exploratory procedures on my guts.

Bah. We just used to nick a roll of tape from the lab (did I mention that I studied biology?) & label whatever seemed appropriate. Biohazard signs appearing on bedroom doors are one way to suggest an improvement in personal hygiene.

If this is a shared flat, surely laxative-spiking should be avoided as the OPs son will have to use the same toilet/bathroom afterwards? :sick:

I never had much experience of this at uni, but a mate used to lock his butter away in one of those treasure chest money boxes. It didn't take long before the perp just broke the lock open, such was his/her addiction to stolen butter.

Whilst all of these posts have kept me entertained during my lunch break, the reality is whatever he does has to be deniable and offputting as he's got to continue living with this guy and will quite likely find the thief spiking food in retribution. Is that a win?

I think the best idea was the drug to make you sick when you smoke. If this does exist, and is harmless if you don't smoke, get it in something your son doesn't use much. He doesn't smoke, so can eat it occasionally, the the thief feels awful in a way that seems unassociated with food theft - and continues to feel awful. Almost worth the price of the food.
