Too Much Power

I've replaced the batteries in my car key. The car alarm remote is now so powerful that when I used it on the way home tonight five cars in the carpark unlocked instantly. And two of them were not even the same make as mine. And one did not have remote locking.

The beam that comes out of the key is now so strong that I've managed to give my left hand a rather attractive tan simply by using pointing the remote at it for five seconds. And if it goes off in my trouser pocket the effect has to be seen to be believed.

Actually, none of this is true, it is simply written to make me feel better about spending eight pounds for a couple of batteries....
