Since every now an then, someone will come in and ask if one of those miracle devices they advertise on latenight TV really works, I thought I'd post a little link that should clear up most questions.

Cutting to the chase: No, none of them work.

Makes for a good read if you're bored


A funny quote from them:
"When smoke started to fill the dyno room, we interrupted the test and redressed the wires and capacitor blocks more securely. But when one on the right bank liquefied and dripped onto the manifold, we had flames a good 2 ft. tall, requiring the use of a 20-pound fire extinguisher. This, of course, terminated the test."

www.snopes.com and www.straightdope.com are always good sources as well.
