The multimillionaire Bob keeps his most valuable treasures in a secure guarded by all the latest technology. But Alice, in true Classy Cat-Burglar style, intends to clean him out. She slips in through a convenient Air-Vent Passageway, uses her Playful Hacker skills to bypass the security keypad, and makes her way into the treasury itself. There, at the far end of the room, sitting on a pedestal, is her target: the famous Maltese MacGuffin.
But there's one little problem. Between here and there is an array of highly visible laser beams, and crossing one will set off the alarm system. What's a girl to do? (And for some reason it's almost always a very athletic girl who ends up in this situation.)
Why, the only thing she can do, of course: pull out her Laser Gymnastics skills! She launches into a highly improbable series of backflips, cartwheels, and similar moves, making her way from one side of the floor to the other without tripping a single laser beam.
