I just thought this would be a fun topic.
Posting stuff about Baldur's Gate in the same vein as "video game logic"
Here's an example.
Is a Thief with 18 Dex and a lock pick skill of 40: still can't open the chest on the 2nd floor of the Candlekeep Inn
Is a Fighter with 24 strength and a +3 Two Handed Sword: Still can't break locks that the Thief with 16 Dex can pick easily.
