    everyday applications of THE HUMAN ANTENNA
    "Here's a weird tip I learned way back from a hardcore Sun engineer, Ben Stoltz... You can use your head as an antenna to boost the range for little RF devices like car key fobs, garage door openers, etc. It sounds crazy and I didn't believe it until I tried it myself. Stick the device under your chin and hit the key... I can double the range on my car RF key this way. It really helps to find your car in a garage when you've forgotten where you parked. Or to hit the garage door signal when you're slightly out of range." [via: Skrentablog]

    sweet. i have actually noticed that before. i have also found that my cell phone reception gets much better when i have the phone near my neck too. i used to live in a place where i got terrible reception, so when i made a call, i would use an ear piece and hold the phone under my face... i couldn't explain why it worked, i just knew it did

    nice. me and rene tried it in a parking lot and it worked like a dream. we jumped up and down for a little bit before getting into the car. who knows what kind of weird throughts those brains of ours are transmitting through the OPEN air constantly. hm, i wonder what kind of radio receiver you would need to pick up other people's thoughts...this sounds like something the military would have and must have attempted already, and fortunatly, the brains a pretty noisy, messy place so i don't think they've suceeeded without implanting things, but i've known a few human receivers in my day.
