Search this site - if it's what I think it is, they've been mentioned before.

ISTR the only point of contention was whether it was a 10p or a 2p resistor from Maplins.

If you really want a booster, there's always this:

Oh, how I wish it were true, but unfortunately it's just another urban legend :(
