So, I was reading through another thread (the one about a moving soda can) and I started thinking about a really weird incident that happened to me at
First a little background on the location. I worked on a military base in a calibration lab. The specific area was the electrical repair/refurbish
workstation. I was the only person on that side of the lab, and there were only 3 others in the building at the time. I was able to quickly find the
others after it happened.
The workbench I was at is a little over 2 feet deep and covered in the blacktop finish (like what you would find in your high school science lab). The
back 10 inches or so are filled mostly with test equipment, leaving most of it open for general use.
I had just finished doing voltage checks on a piece of equipment and had laid the Fluke hand held multimeter on the workbench. I turned away to
prepare the actual equipment that was going to calibrate what I was working on and once my back was toward the multimeter, I heard a loud noise behind
me. I turned around and the found the multimeter on the floor. My first thought was that I put it too close to the edge, but I looked at the workbench
and remembered I had placed the multimeter next to the test leads that I had used, which were a full 8-10 inches from the edge. I talked to my
co-workers afterward and the only thing any of them had to add to the strange occurrence was that one of them swore that he thought he saw the lights
in the section of the lab I was working in flicker.
Anyway what are your thoughts on this?
