Street Lamp Interference, also know as SLIding, is a psychic event recognized and studied by researchers such as, Dr. Richard Wiseman at the
University of Berkfordshire in England, and Hillary Evans, an author and paranormal investigator with The Association for the Scientific Study of
Anomalous Phenomena. SLIders find that a street light switches off or on when they walk or drive beneath it. Or that a light bulb may blow out in
their presence. Home appliances and computers may also fail or experience interference. These things could happen occasionally by chance of course,
but SLIders claim that it happens to them on a regular basis. It doesn't happen every time with every electric light or device, but it happens often
enough to give these people a feeling that something strange and unusual is going on.
Uhmm no....it isn't timers, and it isn't motion detectors. On the majority of the ones I can affect them almost at will. Turning off and on, then
off again, etc. within a 20 min time span is certainly not timers. I have to buy my light bulbs in bulk, as both me and my fiance' have the
"quark" of this.... The only problem I've ever had with machines/computers, is this ordering machine I used in retail before (high school job)...
I kept draining the battery to a point where it wouldn't charge, with just a use or two. After 3 machines in a few weeks, they had me dictate the
orders to someone else, who then entered them!
It's a real fun party trick, but tends to freak out some people (the street light thing)....
Like Nans, I usually have problems with most watches, but I've found a few nice wind ups that seem to work, though I can totally forget using a
digital watch for more than a week or two...before it's toast (and no, it isn't the battery...the board is gone, replacing a new battery is
useless). This is a very real phenomenon, and as much as I'd love to have a nice concrete reason for it, I don't.
