If you have one of those remote locking blipper thingys for your car, and you are out of range, try putting the blipper against your forehead before pressing it. This increases the range at which it works quite dramatically. I imagine that it must be because the ectoplasmic blippinis generated by the blipper reflect off the back of your skull, which concentrates them like a torch beam, but (as you can probably tell) I don't really know. It might be the geeky neuron circuits in your brain reacting to and reinforcing the silicon in the blipper. Or maybe it's mechanical ESP or magic...

But it works.

Do you have any tricks which reveal hidden powers in everyday objects, together with a totally inadequate explanation for the aforesaid phenomena?

This only used to happen when I was quite young.

But I often found that when listening to the radio, if the reception was bad i'd move around the room, until if I was standing in a cirtain place the signal became clear and then I'd sit down and listen to it. This was a stereo tuner and not a portable unit. I have no idea why changing my position in the room would make it work sometimes, but it did.
