Sometimes, even metal fillings in teeth have been known to tune in on a 50KW "clear channel" station.

It may seem to some that John is pulling our collective 'leg', but what he is talking about is technically called "Incidental Rectificaion" and many articles have appeared in the electronics journals about it over the years. Seems that the mercury-silver amalgum used in filings is ideal to act as a demodulating diode when in just the right contact with slightly moist tooth material. It is a very rare phenomenon, but there is that woman in Illinois, I think it was, who always asked why she could hear famous radio personalities in her head. Poor woman was dismissed as crazy for years, until someone with some electronics knowledge got wind of it, and had a dentist inspect for loose/damaged fillings. One was found, corrected, and 'voila!', she was audio free! And we think we have trouble with intermittants?!

Yah... with my luck though, my teeth would be playing a talk station... the wrong kind!
Now... that would be vicious!
