Lullaby Of Foo

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

That reminds me of the email that was going around that said you could unlock your car remote-remotely by holding your car's remote to your cellphone and then broadcasting it via the cell phone. We have an aunt and uncle that swore that would work. We wouldn't argue but sure was amazing that they were that naive.

there was also a video where a guy claims to be able to text message "water" to the vending machine, and have it dispense a water.

Totally fake. Police radios operate at about 150 MHz. Cell phones operate at either 800/900 MHz or 1.8/1.9 GHz.

Police radios operate at a lot of different frequencies on a lot of different bands.

Especially newer systems. 800MHz trunking systems are being replaced by 900MHz encrypted trunking systems.

obviously you are not familiar with the frequency shifting properties of Tostitos brand Cheese dip.

You have to use queso with spicy ground beef and a Nokia to hack into these systems.
