I believe for me the weirdest thing that happened to me was just a few minutes ago.

I have a Comcast digital cable box. For some reason channels 3, 4, 6, and 8 possible others but I didn't check were are blacked out. The info bar said for all of them News, which all of them are on at 5 in the morning but for channel 6 which was Shepherd's Chapel in the morning, but it is my Fox 61 channel. So basicaly a news channel. The only other thing that these channels have in common are the fact they are all based out of Hartford. Channel 3 is CBS 3, 4 is NBC 30, 6 Fox 61, 8 ABC 8.

I went down stairs to my other tv which has no cable box, and they were all showing normaly. Turned off the cable box with no change, then I unplugged it only after that it would work.

I have no idea why it did that, but it was very weird to me.

Ah, what we in the "trade" call a Ferranti reset.

If you look in OLD OLD catalogues from like Woolworth's and Sears from 1800's you might find something called a "prostate warmer" . (I didn't try it but it looks funny.) It looks like an adult novelty, BUT, (no pun intended) it is for men or women and it has an AC power cord!!!!
OMG/ I'll pass

If that's what it does to one's vision, I think I'll pass.

hearz yur anser, André......kwotid strate frum thuh mewseeum:

Prostate Gland Warmer, 1918
The prostate gland warmer promised to "stimulate the abdominal brain!" The device consists of a 4.25 inch probe and a blue light bulb in a socket on a nine foot cord.
When plugged in, the light bulb lit up..
