Greetings my friend, i hope you are well .

I am following this thread with interest and wish to show you something that i have been researching for a very long time . I feel that it would go well with your thread and that you will be interested in it .

I wanted to ask you if you have ever heard of the phenomenon known as S.L.I or Street Light Interference ?
Here is some information on it for you .




Street light interference, or SLI, is an alleged anomalous phenomenon where a person seems to turn off (or sometimes on) street lights, or outside building security lights, when passing near them.


This is from Wikipedia , there is alot more info out there on this phenomenon so you can easily have a look for it but if you wish to view the wiki article i quoted from it can be found here. .

I would love to here your thoughts on this and as always will be following this thread with interest .

Yours In Knowledge

Greetings fellow sliders!

Actually, this is a recognized (though not understood) phenomenon...

Google on "debbie the slider CNN" and you'll even find a CNN story on it. (though Debbie's case is very severe).

SLIDERs (Street Light Interference Data Exchange Receivers) is the hip term for it...


SLI phenomenon seems to be more widespread than most think.

I know all the canned explanations, but when you combine the street lights thing with other "symptoms", such as radio interference, inability to wear digital watches, etc. then you have to wonder what's going on.

(I can only wear a digital watch if it's one of those diver style ones, where the electronics are higher up in the watch, and not near the skin). Even then, they'll usually go crazy characters after a couple months or so (even if never going in water).

Oh awesome thank you abunch, and also to you aswell Omega85. I will be sure to read up on this.

Also i'm going to start to pay more attention to my surroundings just to see if I experience any more incidents, not only with lights but also electronics.

You probably pop a lot of light bulbs in your house too, if you have this issue.

My wife also has had the "problem" before we got together, so with both of us, we'd go though a case of light bulbs a month (literally). We tried different brands, expensive vs. cheap, didn't matter.

Finally, we've had the most success with the new eco-friendly twisty bulbs. They tend to last for a couple of months each or more (supposed to last about 3-5 years, but oh well...still better than 3-4 weeks). Only problem with them, is when they go, they go "spectacularly", hehe....

Luckily, our arguments are rare, but when we do have them (a lot of emotion), at least a couple of lights will go. Which is great, because then we have a laugh at it, and then just replace the bulb. Although, with the new ones, we have to switch off the breaker, then unscrew with pliers (as I said, they break "spectacularly", hehe...).

By the way: if you wear a battery powered watch, and have this issue, you may want to occasionally (once a week) check your time, as I know I and others have issues with such watches losing time...(and yes, have it happen with numerous watches...and no, it isn't a cheap watch). In fact, my primary watch is one of the most expensive things I own (was a gift), and I've had it to a few different jewelers just to be sure nothing is wrong with the internals.

I've experienced this phenomenon for years... I never talked about it, not even when my girlfriends were noticing it, afraid to be just taken for a crackpot. And doing some research on Google a month ago, I found that I wasn't alone raising questions about it.
It happened to me mostly with street lights, but also with shopfront windows halogens, neon tubes in underground railway stations (and not because of failure, they would start flickering regularly minutes after standing underneath, as if receiving some sort of impulse). I did some research and found nothing reliable as explanation. The bulbs aging and overheating may be one, personally, I don’t buy it.
Different streetlights in 3 different towns around Paris (France) were going out invariably on me until mid-august this year (2010), then it stopped.Totally. I’ve been watching around ever since, not a single flickering as far as streetlights can be seen in streets, roads freeways. It's impossible that ALL bulbs have been replaced at once, in three towns not even close to one another.
If aging/overheating bulbs were the real cause, there would be anyway some other lights going out here and there. Also sensors in the street where I live can’t be involved: there aren’t any. Streetlight is regulated by timers. In some streets, when sensors are used, only a single one will trigger a whole range of lights.
So, it's weird to me...

Another publication I suggest you read is "The Amazing Spider Man". There is a character there named Electro. You may have some of those same powers that just have not maifested themselves yet. As you see how often lights change in your presence you will learn if you are a real Electro or not.

I don't know if this was meant to answer my post. I'm probably not this Electro character: as I wrote, it stopped totally by mid august...

I found a streetlight that was out and went on on me this morning, but there are 99,9 % chances it was nothing paranormal. Minutes of observation at a distance made it obvious that it was the bulb overheating or other electrical problem.

However, there is still mystery hanging over lots of other occurrences of this phenomenon...
