The Indications are good...

Prior to my present appointment I was the copy-writer for a mail-order tackle firm and this, of course, required an in-depth knowledge of the items I described. Possibly the most bizarre feature I came across was the menu of alarm sounds to be found on a particular, well-known brand of bite indicator. The user could (can) programme the head to emit one of ten sounds including ‘clucking chicken’, ‘racing car’ and ‘orgasmic woman’! But unusual alarm systems are not new…... Full story
