I wonder if the same equipment would work on car alarms? One of my neighbors drives us all crazy with his car alarm that goes off whenever there's a thunderstorm.

  1. Terrific cartoon. I'd love to be able to do that. And I have had to go wake up neighbors in the middle of the night to make them turn off their car alarms. Sheesh.

  3. I love this.

    When mathman and I lived in an apartment beneath two young women who I swear used pogo sticks to go from room to room, when we got fed up with the obnoxious racket, Mathman would blast them with recorded marches.

    That usually did the trick.

  4. A while back I read that the police will be getting a device that disables the electronics (computers) on a car so they can stop it without chasing it. That should do it.

  5. I once had a neighbor, back in my apartment-dwelling days, who would play country music at max volume until 3 AM on weekend nights. I solved that by playing very early Pink Floyd at max volume, about 3 hours later.
