Seen this on Top Gear. A car remote control that is just out of range, but if you press it against your heat the rage increase and the car lock or unlock. I've tried it with my gate remote and it works! What is happening here?

uhm

if i press it against my heat, then it will only get wet, and fishy.
if i press it against my head, then i might get a brain tumour.

if i press it against my heat and the rage increases, it means i need to get new batteries. or a new boyfriend.
if i press it against my head and the rage increases, it means i've popped a vein in my head, and im about to go on a killing spree.

if i press it against my head and the range increases, i will be pleasantly surprised. maybe coz the signal is bounced about in my empty head then flies out my other ear and the signal is concentrated.
mebbeh its nonsense.

This thread should immediately report to Fun.



@Tweefo: Have you tried it with an assortment of other materials in different sizes and shapes? It seems like some form of increase in transmission aerial is occurring and that your head being a head has little to do with it. Try another body part like your knee or hip where bone is close to the surface, as well as others where bone is deep-seated.

P.S.: After extensive testing, I conclude that my ever-dodgy 3G connection isn’t improved by pressing my head or other part of me against the body of the modem…

Did some googling, and found what seems to be confirmation.

Thanks, that explain it a bit I think. But then, I am a bit brain damaged so do I have more or less range?
