After doing some recent random research, I was somewhat disturbed to realize that I shared some traits with was is called a "SLIder" (SLI- Street Light Interference)
For more information on the subject, see here: [link]
I'm a neutral person, I don't like to say things are definite and I don't like to say things aren't, I'm very open-minded, and after reading this, it did get me thinking.
Since in Arizona, in order to beat the heat, school starts pretty early, and we also don't have daylight savings time, so often during the colder season I walk to school in the dark. There's a one street light that always turned off whenever I walked under it, maybe five times it didn't. I never really thought it odd, I always figured it was just coincidence.
However, that's not the only odd effect I experienced with technology, my cellphone has a habit of randomly turning on and off, and taking pictures completely by itself, now the thing is old and stupid to begin with (it's the first and only cellphone I've ever had. I hardly use phones to veing with and don't text so I don't see a need for an upgrade), but this happens often.
The light in my room also flickers almost every night, but the whole house might to do that so that's not very good evidence XD
But I think the strangest of the phenomena is my most recent incident. I was working on the computer during a class and, like always, I had my purse on my lap. Now I got my purse from an army surplus store and it's made of strong but pretty durable fabric, just a little visual help for you. So I began to notice that the spot where my purse was resting on my leg was beginning to get hot, I have a habit of experiencing random, quick and sharp pains that have nothing to do with anything and I also get moments where random spots on my body will heat up, so I ignored it at first. However, the heat continued to increase to the point that it was unbearable. So I went digging through my purse to find the source and, originally expecting my cellphone, I pulled out the AAA battery I keep in my purse as backup for my MP3 player. Well, I really didn't pull it out since it was too hot to touch, so I threw it one the table. It cooled down after a while and I still have it now (not using it though)
So, I asked my science teacher what might trigger the reaction considering it wasn't charging or hooked up to anything, but she had no answer, I posted the question online but everyone said they had never heard of a battery heating up for no reason, especially to the heat level I claimed it did.
I joked with my mom that I must have had an electrical current in my body, but after reading about SLI I wonder if it could have been that.
The human brain is an amazing thing, but as I said earlier, I'm remaining neutral on it until so one can prove it's existence and even then I still might be somewhat skeptic.
The battery incident still has me wondering and according to the article, people's mood triggers the reaction, but for me, I'm always thinking intently (well, more intently then usual) in the moments when I get a reaction, but whatever,
Post your thought,
