Comments: Lost your keys?

Actually, Mythbusters TV show tried the tennis ball trick. They couldn't get it to work and declared it busted.

Sure you can! You just can't use a tennis ball, unless you cut a hole in it, fill it with lead shot, and throw it through a window. If that would even work - you might need some sharp points on the outside, too.
