    Default KEWL Tips & Tricks: The Inevitable Demise of Pop-A-Lock

    This is just too KEWL not to pass on and in the interest of saving space and bandwidth, I thought we might also post any OTHER kewl "household" tips and tricks here:

    I received this in an e-mail this morning and IT REALLY WORKS! I just tried it numerous times :

    EVER LOCK YOUR KEYS IN THE CAR?

    I know you will not believe this, but try it for yourself.

    Ever locked the keys in the car?

    If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, just
    call someone on your cell phone who has another set.

    Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the other
    person at your home or wherever press the unlock button, holding it near
    the phone on their end. Your car will unlock.

    Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you.

    Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away and if you
    can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car you can unlock
    the doors (or the trunk!).

    Editor's Note: It works fine! We tried and it unlocked our car over a
    cell phone! Neat tip!

    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."

    I'm taking it this tip won't work with a '72 Ford pickup? I'm shit out of luck as I don't have a cell phone, or a remote lock/unlock feature on my car.

    Actually, with a cracked head, I don't drive my car any farther than across town, and since we are probably just short of 2,500 people, that's not that far. I could just walk home and get another set. If I had another set. No problem, the drivers side window will push down without much trouble. I need a new car.

    I lost my spare key. But it only took seeing the 'locksmith' a few
    dozen times with the 'Slim Jim' to finally realize "Hey. I could probably
    do the same thing with a coat hanger." Works like a charm.
    Cool factoid about the cell phone thingy, though.

    Claim: Cars equipped with remote keyless entry systems can be unlocked via cell phone.

    Ok, Seen I thought the same thing. So just a few minutes ago, I have my daughter call my cell phone with me standing out by my car. It is at least 100 feet away if not more. So she does the little clicker in the phone. It freakin worked! That is too cool!

    WOW. Didn't think to check Snopes for that. But they're WRONG. Guess there's a first time for everything.

    I'm just postin what Snopes says, at this point the only way I'll 100% believe it is if I try it myself....

    Would be a good tip to know in a jam if it really does work.

    Maybe you guys were close enough to the car when calling that it picked up the actual remote rather than the magical transmissions through the cell phone....
