Back in the 70s there used to be a trend toward ornaments that sat on
the tv, supposedly having aerials inside them. I can clearly remember
a small , well not that small, naff looking statue of a girl made in
plastic. Never seemed to work very well as I suspect they just had a
bit of ewiire inside them.

So anyone who thinks that snake oil is a modern thing, should just
look at hisstory.

I do believe that the original snake-oil salesmen, in the Wild West,
predated TV sets!
