I usually sleep through the night unless one of my animals makes some strange sound or I have a weird dream. Last night I woke up around 2:40 am
(CST). I felt really weird and anxious, and thought I heard some weird low hum.
It is now 4:36 am, and I have yet to fall back asleep. My alarm will go off at 6 anyway, so I have given up trying.
I was trying to go back to sleep, but I was too anxious, and the weird noise (hum) was bothering me, and I was lying there in the dark wondering when
they were turning on the Large Hadron Collider. I actually said to myself that I wouldn't be surprised if I learned that it came on between 2 and 3
am (my time).
Well, when my husband got up to go to work, I decided to get online and see if it had been turned on yet. CNN reported that it had been turned on at
7:32 GMT. I did not know how that converted to CST, so I looked on some websites that converted it for me. Sure enough... 2:32 am where I am.
Now, I am pretty sensitive to electromagnetic waves or whatever you want to call it. For example, if you turn off the TV by using the cable remote,
the TV goes off, but I can still hear that it's on because it makes this horrible hum. My husband and father can't hear it, but my mom and aunt
can. I also hate going in Bestbuy, because my stomach feels queasy and I feel anxious. I really think it might be all of the electronics.
I might be wrong about electromagnetic waves, and I might be wrong about time zone conversion. I am a lawyer, and I don't really need to know a lot
about either. I have also never been a science person...
Is my theory possible? Did anyone else wake up around the same time that the LHC was turned on? If I am right, am I screwed out of a good night's
sleep forever now?
Think I'll ponder it over some waffles.
Edited to add: Mods, I put this in Skunkworks because I think it's kind of a crazy theory (although not the craziest one I have seen on here).
Please move it, if you feel there is a more appropriate place for it. Thanks!
