I was going to edit my previous post until I accidentally popped into a non existing page two of this thread.

Sometimes it seems like reality suddenly changes and there are slight differences in people and other things as if I slipped into another reality. My iPad sometimes shows pages which don't exist. That might be off topic, not sure.

I was going to post that maybe your clothes might affect how much static charge you have. In the summer time, in one night club, I was wondering if the friction between my shorts and some new chairs was causing a big static charge to build up on me. I was zapping everything and everyone. It's not nearly as bad now with long pants. I am wondering why I never had a problem at another club with similar chairs and the same clothes.

I did find it amusing when I told a girl I somewhat knew who didn't seem to believe me. When we were both in the danger zone, she touched my head and I heard POW, a big zap from my head to her hand. I thought that was funny. She was working in the club and said no one else said anything about a static electricity problem. That was this past summer.

So you're a chick, have you noticed any correlation between you physically (eg female cycles) and this ability/curse? (
Is there a difference or similarities in immediate weather movements, like storms etc. does this effect you?

I guess what I'm asking is have you mapped/journel-ed your occurrances and then correlated any patterns you can discern?

As inconvenient as I assume it would be, it is very interesting.

Our bodies have electrical and magnetic, measurable movements
You may have an excess which radiates and affects, or absorbs and shuts down, but that came from somewhere first.
Can you 'feel' this physically or is just displayed in the appliances?

I can see the above question is for the op.

I just wanted to add I have experienced a big jump in static shocks when a storm is overhead.

This is when I'm inside a large building not outside. Outside I have noticed lots of wind and who knows what else.

hey there Stormy, i had no idea you were struggling with this.
no, you're not alone.

a buddy of mine a few years back used to walk from his workplace to mine after the bar closed (i was night mgr and worked til dawn). as he crossed the mall parking lot, each pair of overhead lamps would dim as he approached and passed them.

he'd call in advance to let me know he was on his way and then place another quickie call to make sure i could 'see' him approaching ( in the dark of night / no moon )

this was a regular occurance.
after much trial and error, we accidentally discovered magnets helped to diffuse his charge.
don't know if you've ever tried it but it helped him.

i usually wear a magnet bracelet to help with back/neck pain issues.
one day, he had a couple magnets in his pants pocket (anti-theft devices from work) and when we were together, my bracelet broke and i asked him to 'hold' it for me. (no pockets)

later that evening, when he came by the shop, i wasn't able to 'see' his approach.
we discussed it at great length and determined the magnets must provide some kind of interference, maybe ?

neither of us are wholly convinced that the magnets are responsible but what we do know is it worked.

i never believed the magnets would help to manage my pain until i tried them.
and for me, a bracelet or two beats a lifetime of pills, anyday.

good luck, give it a try and let us know if you get any relief

I just don't wear watches many have died... they only need to be on my wrist for a couple of weeks and they go fast, they go slow, then they stop altogether.

I used to have an issue with streetlights, but not so much now and I've found that since I've switched to the energy saving bulbs, I don't have the same problem with that.

But yes, computer equipment can be a problem, I have lost count of the computers I've had since 1995, current laptop is still going strong though...darn, I've probably hexed it now, so if I disappear for a while you'll know why

I don't know if this is unusual but other than maybe 3 light fixtures in my house, there are several lights including a light fixture with multiple light bulbs in two different bathrooms, that I never replaced a single light bulb since I bought my house back in 1999. None of those have burned out and they get used just about every day multiple times. Maybe I should say they don't seem to make too many bulbs like that anymore. That is incandescent light bulbs that last many years. I am knocking on wood now. I am wondering if a keyless car remote battery can last twenty years before needing to be replaced. It is currently 12 years old. I drive my car almost every day multiple times. I don't know 3 or 4 years from now the battery might go out. I suspect there could be something about the design of a light fixture that might explain why a light bulb burns out every few months or once every two decades.

I have had issues with electrical items.
When I was a teenager and just come back from school (I lived five minutes walk from my secondary school). I was really angry and when I walked into my Mum's front room, the light bulb literally blew up. It exploded. It just made me more angry as I had to clear it up. (My mum was disabled and bedridden then.) Glass everywhere.

When I was doing research into Direct Energy Weapons, I found out that microwaves aimed at old type filament bulbs will overload them and stop working. (This is how I know when we have been DEW'd, when 3-4 go at the same time.) The more wattage the microwaves, I believe, the more chance the bulb will literally explode.

Something new started happening recently. Lately I have been changing pages on my PC, sometimes just by thinking. And taking photos on my touchscreen mobile phone, again just by thinking.

I can't remember if I was a SLIder but I killed watches. I got electrocuted once in my mum's attic via mains electricity. So now I am fearful of electrical DIY.

I do know that a lot of my problems stopped, when two implants in my ear popped out. They looked really old. One was broken, so maybe that's why there were two.

So maybe SLIders should get tested for microwaves? or for an EM field around them. Then they shouldn't go near people who have heart pacemakers.

Oh yeah the new eco bubs aren't affected by microwaves, (so is this why they are being pushed on us? Cos they don't blow when DEW are aimed at them?) and so maybe that is why SLIders aren't able to blow them.
BUT it is at a cost to their health.

They give off dirty electricity, and my eldest just did a test on the differences in eco bulbs and the old GLS (filament) bulbs. The old GLS bulbs produce all the wavelengths along the visible spectrum of white light. (IE all the colours of the rainbow after it has been split by a prism.)
An eco bulb does not, it has gaps in the visible spectrum, and they give off much higher amounts of UV light.
They should be banned and then put all of them in the homes of the people, who were the architects of this atttrocity.

Three years ago I used neodymium magnets on all my vaccination injection sites, and a lot of my other problems stopped then. (High pitch humming and other stuff.) Magnetic Hematite could work too and it looks cool.

I would like to know what causes this phenomenon.

My problem isn't as pronounced as the OPs but I do have a high percentage of street lights that burn out as I pass. It seems that when I am deep in thought, or highly stressed does this occur though.

I swear this past year, the tally of burnt street lights in my wake were at least a dozen. I've lost count. I would imagine this is a high percentage compared to other people? I mean these city street lights are supposed to have a VERY long life aren't they?

Funny thing is my parents just installed this exact type of street light at their cottage and I mentioned my luck with them and my mom told me to stay away from theirs

I bet the city workers would curse me if they could.

ETA: Watches and batteries also do not seem to last very long for me. Electronics seem fine around me but don't last that long either. I blame that on shoddy Chinese manufacturing.

I know this has been addressed here before but not in recent history so I'm going to dredge it back up again.

Does anyone else out there deal with this phenomenon? I blow light bulbs weekly, fry just about any computer I try to use (even with a static strap), lights go on an off as I walk or drive past them and lately, just about anything electrical that I get near ends up terminally fried with no darn good explanation. Cell phones are a bad one too. It doesn't matter whose phone I'm trying to use, even if it's fully charged, it will shut itself off and not turn back on till recharged. I wear hearing aids... or tried to. The batteries are supposed to give me 90 hours of use but they fry after a day. I gave up. Something happened today that scared the crap out of me and I can only hope that I'm just being over sensitive about it but... more on that later if anyone is interested.

This has been something that my mother had issues with; wind up watches only, she fried battery powered, calculators went wonky the minute she touched them. My son blows light bulbs to the point I've seen them "pop". It used to be kind of fun freaking people out with it because sometimes I could say "watch this" and watch their eyes get huge. Now, it's not so fun anymore and getting expensive.

Years ago, there were a few TV programs on the phenomenon and it was in the news a little. Now I can't find much discussion on it. I know I'm not alone.

so....who typed this up for you? I mean, how did your computer survive your posting this?

Yes, I typed it myself. If you've read all my posts, I have stated that I don't have problems all the time and If I am having one of those days, I rotate between 3 laptops depending on which one will stay charged or even on. I also wear a static strap whenever I'm on a computer of any kind.

The night that I typed my original post, I was using my daughter's MacBook Pro which is under a year old and has been meticulously cared for. After 2 hours of use, the battery was totally drained (I started with it fully charged) and the PMU was fried. Thankfully, her fiance is a techie and he brought it back to life.

Yesterday, nothing fried on me and today has been peachy so far. As I said, it comes and goes. If I wake up and the first thing that happens is my phone goes dead 10 minutes off the charger, or the first light I turn on "pops", it's a pretty good indicator that I'm going to have one of those days.

Thanks for the idea.

It never occurred to me to try magnets. I don't generally wear jewelry but I just might look into getting one of the bracelets or even carrying one in my pocket. I should probably journal my incidents before and after to see if it makes a noticeable difference.

My ex is a tri-athlete and he swears by his for pain too.

I don't have near the problem you have, but I can't wear battery powered watches, they just give out in a day. Even fresh batteries are gone within 24 hours. If I go to the doctor, they can't use the digital blood pressure cuffs, they just have to do it the old fashion way. If they use the new ones, they just register an E. Same with digital thermometers, they just won't work. It seems to only effect battery operated things that actually have contact with my body or are very, very close to me, say, within a couple inches.

as an experienced user, i fully agree with their effect on pain/mobility.

as for the bracelet(s), from what you're describing, i'm doubtful one or even a pair are strong enough ... here's what he had in his pocket and here's what one of my bracelets looks like.
the ZD1s i have about 15
and 4 of the ZD200

i have a hard time keeping the bracelets on but when i do wear them, it's usually like these ...

link 1

link 2

link 3
but there are plenty to choose from at a wide variety in cost.
and here's a tip ... once you know what you're looking for, stop by a Goodwill near you

i found the ZDs there and got all of them for under $5.

ETA --> as for how to use them ... depending on the level of pain, i'll link 2-6 of them together (they're really strong by the way) and toss them in a pocket or even in my bra, if i'm wearing one.
if neither is available, i'll place them in my sock, near the ankle.
they are small and unobtrusive so be creative.
i've known ppl who use alot of hair products to attach them to thier ties, clips, headbands, scarves and the like.
(hot glue is your friend)

any questions, feel free to u2u me and if you have some ideas about wearing them, please share ... always looking for new and creative ways to stay healthy

oooooh, almost forgot ... magnets and electronic memory don't mix well at all.
do not set you mags near you cpu.
do not set your media, on your lap (with mags in pocket)
(this includes your phone, your ipad, mp3 player, readers, etc ... )

i'm sure there are others but i hope you get the drift.

I wonder if this has anything to do with a person's nervous system, the electrical signals, not working properly. That would be my second guess, as my first would also be static electricity, although this could be caused by the electrical signals of the body being out of whack. Or maybe it has to do with resonance, and an amplification of the electricity already present in your body.

If you have access to an EMF detector, I would love to know if there is a spike when placed around you. You could also try a regular volt meter, and try placing the two leads on different parts of your body. Something like that would actually give scientific results. Also, I agree with the poster who said that while many have claimed these abilities, or this curse, however you look at it, but none have proven it under scientific settings. The first step to doing this would of course be learning when you can and when you are not able to perform these electrical anomalies. So it is important to know if it only occurs when you are in a certain emotional state, or is it simply random? There is likely some sort of pattern, but you just have to recognize what that pattern is.

Once this is figured out here is what you do next...Either by yourself, or someone on ATS could help you; I would help you too, to find a credible scientist who is willing to come to your house and do a preliminary screening just to make sure that there is really something strange going on here. After that, it would be up to you and your family to decide how you would like to proceed, as there will likely be different options available. This is what you do if you want some answers.

If you want to possibly make some money off of this ability, you could first just call up your local news station to see if they would carry your story. If this happens you could get enough exposure for someone to come find you. If not, you could always just contact different people or groups outright. But anyone who is credible is going to want to make sure everything is legitimate, so they will likely want multiple demonstrations. This will not be a problem if you are genuine in your claims, as long as you know and understand when this ability does and does not present itself.

I hope that will help you at least a little bit, for now, as there are other options as well. The main thing is knowing your objective. If you really want to get rid of this problem, then you are first going to have to get it diagnosed, so that it may be known what exactly is going on, and hopefully what causes it to happen. If someone with this same problem were to actually have the condition proven scientifically, that person would be helping potentially thousands upon thousands of other people who likely have this same problem. In the back of my mind however I am wondering why, if there truly were this many people with this condition, has there not been anyone to prove it yet.

I vaguely remember a television show that depicted someone with these same problems, but I cannot recall if they ever got to the bottom of it. Anyway, feel free to PM me if you would like, as I would be happy to do what little I can. I'm sure there are others who would help you as well, but the thing is that no one really has any clue how to do that. My best guess is what I described above, and hopefully there is something that can be done. Given that this would be a novel condition, it likely would not cost you anything monetarily speaking to get this checked out. At least in my opinion.

From what I can find on the subject, some do seem to think is something related with the nervous system and a person's electrical signals. Unfortunately, there just isn't a lot of research even though there seems to be quite a few of us with this problem. As some have stated above, some have issues with lightbulbs, others have issues with batteries, others zap anything in their path. The draining of batteries is what has me stumped. If I'm pulling a charge away from something, it seems like I should feel it or something.

Since my son and I both have this problem, we have messed around with EMF detectors as well as volt meters and the like. EMF meters usually just go dead on us, as in battery drain. We haven't managed to do anything interesting with the volt meter.

I would love to find someone who is interested in checking this out just so that I've got some explanation as to what's going on. I have no interest in noteriety or monetary gain, I'd just like some answers.

I've spoken with several members of my mom's family because she had this problem as well (she's now deceased). Come to find out, most of her siblings have it too, as did her mom and grandfather. This leads me to think maybe it's something hereditary in our wiring, so to speak. I wish there was a way to predict when I'm going to have a really bad spell with this because it would be much easier to demonstrate what's going on. I have no control over any of it.

When I asked my aunt who has multiple Phd's and a slew of Masters (she's no dummy, is my point) why she thought more people didn't come forward with having this thing, she said that it was like having a 3rd nipple. You learn to live with it because it's part of you and since people will likely say you're a freak, you just keep it between you and other people with 3rd nipples. There's also the credibility issue, obviously.

I got one on ya - I can't wear cheap watches because unless they're really really well sealed, my sweat/oil will ooze into the back and corrode it like a bad battery.

And I tear up expensive ones at work.

Also can't wear a ring unless it's 24k, any base metal to any extent and I'll rot that thing and the finger too.

I was beloved in the Army for my ability to polish brass buttons with my fingers. All I have to do is rub them and they shine, but you have to wipe them down with a cloth or they'll go green in a few days. I can also rot the blue off a rifle or sidearm, and my sweat peels the lacquer off of saxophones.

I was thinking I posted my car battery went dead the other day. I believe it had something to do with the cold damp air we recently experienced. I do not believe I had anything to do with it.

I burn out street lights weekly. My younger sister does the same. When we're together? It happens almost -every- time. When it occurs we just look at each other and exclaim "Every Freakin' Time!"

Our guys didn't believe us, so we told them to take us for a short drive in the same car. 10 Minutes later we're back in my driveway and 2 street lights are out on my street.They still don't believe us, but we don't hold it against them.

I only read your initial post and none of the replies so I'm not sure if anyone else has brought it up but it sounds like you have a form of telekinesis? Maybe something to do with excess of kinetic energy. I'm not sure telekinesis is the exact word that I'm thinking of for this. You're not alone although I don't know anyone personally who does what you do though I've heard of others. What it sounds like is that you may be absorbing some of the electrical energy from these objects hence things going out and the popping or exploding may be you sending all that energy back out because you have too much and no room for it to move so it goes into whatever object is nearest. You can learn to control it and probably all ready know this to some extent if you've demonstrated your ability to others to freak them out. I've heard that people able to do this make excellent healers and that might help with your excess energy. I don't know anything else to suggest or help. That's just what I've heard. I imagine it's a bit like pyrokinesis in some way.

Stormy, Well, be ready to meet your twin, LOL...Me! I am exactly the same way in every respect. I have been so, for a number of years. I was electrocuted twice in life from various accidents so I don't know if that plays a part in it or not? I have googled Sliders years ago and after I got past all of the "stuff" relevant to the tv show by the same name, I did come across some info on it.

I have noticed that if I am very upset or worried or angry, the slider "events" occur more. I blow out light bulbs weekly. It got so bad with electrical apparatus that old pals wouldn't let me touch their stereos or appliances and such. At nite, I often have blue lite arcing from my fingers in the dark. Hubby is a computer nut and builds them all the time so that helps me...lucky he has a hobby like that. LOL. I use mostly laptops also. Like you mentioned, it dosen't happen constantly, it comes and goes. We have had lots of trouble with transformers at our various residences. Watches are another problem for me. Tv turns on and off by itself and changes channels sometimes. That "frosts" hubby, especially if he's into a football game.

One night, the entire living room lit up in a blinding light. We lived way out in the boonies, no ones car lites, no transformer blew....hubby witnessed it also. Don't know what occurred that time. I have tried magnets, copper and I collect gems stones and all manner of "mystical" stones and carry some on me or have them near me, to no affect. As I am getting older, some of the more drastic stuff has lightened up but not all of it. I have had a lot of paranormal experiences, I should write a book. Anyways, you're not alone in this. Blessings and good luck. ^j^
