Hello, I am new to this board and this is my first post. I've been lurking over this website for about a year, but only now have I decided to
register, and I'm kind of glad that I finally decided to do so. There are certainly many intelligent people on this website, and many if not all of
you are here because you've experienced something or are aware of things that you simply cannot explain. This is why I signed up, I want to discuss
with people the paranormal because I may learn something from someone else that I may not have ever thought of on my own. Of course, I'm also very
interested in other topics, such as government conspiracies, for one.
Okay, I don't want to bore you talking about myself for too long, so I'll go ahead and post why I created this thread.
To begin, I have no idea if this is something paranormal or not, but it sure has caught my attention in recent past four weeks. I have a job at the
Lansing State Journal here in Lansing, MI and my job is to deliver newspapers to stores and racks starting at 3:00 a.m.. This is kind of hard for me
to do because I am a full-time college student and the job does interfere with my sleeping pattern, but I do it because it's good money. During my
work everynight, I travel many streets that are quite busy during the day but mostly empty during my work hours of 3-5 a.m.. So I am quite aware of
everything around me, and when a streetlight goes off as I come near it or pass under it, naturally I take notice of it. If this only occured once or
twice a night, I would have ignored it, but this anomaly (for lack of a better word) occurs at least 5 to 10 times a night. One of my friends
suggested that it may be occuring because the lights on the streets have light sensors which control when it should turn on and off depending on the
amount of light outside. Even so, how does that explain why they go off just as I pass under them? I don't know if there is a simple explanation for
this, but if there is, I certainly am not aware of it.
Does anyone have any explanation for why this may be happening?
