What’s The Frequency Kenneth? February 24, 2009

Posted by daveintexas in Commenting Tips, Crime, Gardening, History, Man Laws.

Did you know you can easily double the range of the transmitter in your electronic car door unlocker thingy by holding it up against the side of your head when you press the button?  Supposedly this uses all that inter-cranial fluid type stuff you got floatin between your ears as a gigantical antenna or something.




Either that or you’re just holding the transmitter up higher.  For whichever reason, it does work.





Of course, you look like a dork doing it.  But that doesn’t bother me.

Dave, assuming I try this, you will never know about it.

2. daveintexas - February 24, 2009

That’s the beauty of it counselor. Everybody tries it, then claims they never did.

3. Mare - February 24, 2009

I’m willing to try this, if, in fact it works. If it’s some internet scam encouraging dupes to do this I will be mad but no one will know it.

In unrelated news, Mrs. DinTX, thinking her husband was disabled by a severe headache every time he put his hand to his head, used her car door unlocker thingy to get them in. Her swift thinking and use of fresh batteries gave them access from twice the usual distance.

Did you know that “gullible” is not in the dictionary?

Seriously. Look it up if you don’t believe me.

Dave, I still can’t figure out how you get random amounts of white space between your paragraphs to piss me off. There must be some HTML paragraph break code or something.

It’s a very closely kept secret, but I’ll tell you Michael.

(I press the “Enter” key several times).

(I press the “Enter” key several times).

That does not work, and you know it, you sneaky bastard. What you also have to do is post from the HTML editor rather than the Visual rich text editor, Mr. Smarty Pants.

I used to point the remote up under my chin and direct the signal with my open mouth in an O shape. Range increased by 300%.

Back when I had a car alarm this was most awesome.

Now I drive a Jeep that has zippers for windows and I don’t leave anything in it I can’t do without.

Manual windows and locks.

heh, I knew Dave was doing that on purpose.

Beautiful job on the Obama speech post at Ace’s, Dave.

12. Mare - February 24, 2009

Dave, I too, enjoyed your posting at Ace’s.

I always like your posts there.

13. daveintexas - February 24, 2009

Heh. I only posted the first sentence. Ace live-blogged the rest.

Course, you need a good setup guy like me to get him started.

14. Michael - February 24, 2009

It’s a magical evening.

Poetry, man, just poetry. How did you come up with that?

15. daveintexas - February 24, 2009

I don’t know man. But the chicks go for that sort of thing, don’t they?

16. geoff - February 24, 2009

Heh. I only posted the first sentence. Ace live-blogged the rest.

Well you’re a great Ed McMahon, then.

I know that we did stupid stuff like that in one thread.

18. Wickedpinto - February 24, 2009

Can’t remember, eff it.

You know if you lock your keys in your car, you can call someone with your spare key’s, and have them hold it next to the phone, and if you hold your cell close enough, the signal will be passed through the phone’s antennae?

Don’t know if it works for all cars, but saw a link to a demo, and people say it’s real.

I think the trick is that both phones have to be cells.
