Current Topic:
Cell phone antenna boosters

Many years ago I actually bought a device advertised on TV to improve TV reception by somehow "connecting" your antenna to your house wiring.  It came with a transformer-looking plug and wire to attach to the TV antenna.  Of course it had no impact whatsoever on reception.  Frustrated, I cracked the plastic case open just to see what magic lie inside.  Guess what I found.  Nothing.  It was an absolutely empty plastic shell.  I consider that $29.99 tuition paid in the University of Life.  No one ever went broke overestimating the gullibility of the buying public.
