I can't wear a watch for more than a few days before it breaks down.
I've seen a static spark jump from my mom's finger and kill a television.
My grandma had a watch start ticking backwards on her.
I have killed more than one computer.
I also can't wear metal jewelry. It burns my skin.
I've touched door knobs and had the electrical crap knocked out me.
It would seem that some people carry a heavy electrical charge for some reason.

Keepin this thread alive at least another day with some support.
Things we checked out a long time ago with people that were able to knock down a processor...
1. Types of soles on shoes. Neoprene style soles .vs. leather or leather with metal taps. The later was deemed possibly a culprit.
2. Women that wore panty hose. Inconclusive, although it was blamed for many occurrences.
3. Silicone based skin ointments. Insulate the body and let it build up more of a static charge so the discharge had more potential. Possible link.
4. Combinations of rayon and other synthetic clothing. Inconclusive.
To many who we considered "electric", none of these mattered, or hindered, their ability to cause havoc with early electronics.

When I was about 16 years old, the anesthetics used at the dentists office no longer worked on me .

4 wisdom teeth pulled without being numb? Ouch!
Have you ever needed to be put under general anesthesia? Do you have an immunity to that as well? I've only had to be put under once as an adult, for a cosmetic procedure, and it was when that movie "Awake" had just came out. I've experience sleep paralysis for most of my life, so i was convinced I'd be more prone to waking up during surgery. For me, sleep paralysis is not a scary thing, it's more funny, but I was terrified being in that state during surgery. It's very traumatic for the people who experience. Not to mention, the extreme pain they feel during the surgery. ( my mom reassured me it happens more so in the more complex procedures like open heart surgery. Not boob jobs. Lol). Anyways, I wonder if you'd be more at risk for that to happen?
I realize that no type of medicine is going to work as intended, on everyone. Yet it's still fascinating to me that anesthetics not. You guys must have some Chuck Norris DNA fight off there effects and have to live without the benefits of numbness.
