Garage Jamming

A secretive Air Force facility in Colorado Springs tested a radio frequency this past week that it would use to communicate with first responders in the event of a homeland security threat. But the frequency also controls an estimated 50 million garage door openers, and hundreds of residents in the area found that theirs had suddenly stopped working.

I’m imagining some poor soul who’d given up on life and was sitting in his garage with the door closed and his car running. But suddenly, he sees a sliver of hope! Maybe life isn’t so bad! Uh oh… he’s fading. If he can… just… reach… the garage door opener…. Got it! Wait, why isn’t the button doing anything? Why!!!…… 🙁
