Cool trick

Ever lock your keys in the car? You fight with the whole coathanger thing to try and jimmy the lock open and sometimes you have to bite the bullet and call AAA.

Okay, no guy would actually call AAA. You know it and I know it. Anyway.

It turns out that some clever woman has come up with a novel use for the tennis ball on the end of your car's antenna. Check out this video:

For the record, my mother used to lock her keys inside her car about twice a year. I bugged her to get one of those Hide-A-Key things and she promptly locked that inside the car with her keyring. This technique would have proven quite useful to her, except I'm convinced that she would have locked the tennis ball inside the car, too.
