I'll preface this by saying that this subject isn't one I typically spend a lot of time on, but I have always been very aware of it, and always been
thoughtful of it, just never delved into it.
This might sound bizarre, but since I can remember, at night, when walking under street lamps, they go off after I've walked under them. I like to
walk at night, and also used to ride my bicycle at night, and when I go under a street lamp, they often go out, and when I ride under them on a
bicycle they often go out. Even driving under them in a car, they'll go out.
This is something that happens often enough that I have actively noticed it, and even jokingly mentioned it to others, such as my husband, and
friends, and nobody has experienced this. However I mentioned it once to my mother, while walking with her at night, and she said "that is strange,
that has happened to me too".
In fact, with my husband, I have even said, watch, this light will go out as soon as I pass under it, and often, it does, though I have never kept
score on percentages, it's enough that I can say with some degree of confidence that it will go out or dim.
And yes, this probably sounds nutty to others, it sounds kind of silly to me too, but it has happened since I can remember, so I often just figured it
had something to do with the lights or something. I have wondered of some of the lights are on a "light/darkness sensor" but it wouldn't make sense
because in most cases I don't have a light on me at all, and if all cars caused street lamps to go out, it seems they would be constantly having
issues. I've never tried to study it, or really mentioned it to anyone, except as a "watch this" or noting it to myself when it happens.
So I ask, does this happen to you? Or have you heard of this before?
** I have a few other "odd" things that seem to happen to me,but I'll leave those for other discussions.
