My father is a ham radio operator with major antennas. More than once, people showed up demanding he turn it off, insisting it was interfering with TVs miles away. Not true, since ours worked and none of the next door neighbors was complaining. Weird was the lady who showed up and was certain he was altering her thoughts.
I work for a small electronics firm and now get requests to design things from energy harvesting antennas to light reactors from UFO-ology. My hub "Please violate the laws of physics for me" details some of those stories. And we tend to get the requests on Monday morning, as if they've been thinking about it all weekend and now call or email us first thing next business day.
