    Default SLIders...step forward.

    Ok...this is a bit out of left field...even for me

    Well, has ummm, anyone noticed that like maybe on the odd occasion, (or not so odd occasions as the case may be), that Street lights sometimes turn off when you walk under them?

    Seriously.Happens to me a bit.

    Now I know that there are about a thousand rational reasons why I'm just imagining this phenomena...but, I lived by the sea...by a large bay. Now theres a road that follows coast, with lots of street lights. I climbed a nearby hill, lit up my shisha pipe and sat and watched these damn streetlights for 2 solid damn hours.

    Not one went out.

    Then I went for a midnight stroll along said road...4 went out...all with me just about underneath them all.

    WTF?

    So I did some research, seems this is a relatively known thing...They are called SLIders, (Street lamp Interference)
    Street light interference - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Here some people tried to make a academic study of it
    http://www.assap.org/newsite/Docs/sli.pdf

    So I now know I'm not entirely nuts....just curious though, who else has noticed this?

    That's happens a lot to me too, i noticed certain lights are more prone too it. But electrical devices are prone to not operating properly. Walking under street lights definitely makes them go out, but i'm not sure why.

    I used to think it was weird cause the people i was walking with would be like what the hell? And i was like? maybe i have super powers. So i decided to test if i did. And i don't ........ yet.

    I'm gonna go double check actually. I'm gonna try to pull a Keanu Reeves off the roof of my house.
    EDIT: Yeah definitely don't yet, and neither did that kid i landed on apparently.

    Ah,but...did you learn Kung-Fu on the way down?

    I have never turned street lights off, but when I walk past the telly it goes off and then comes back on, must be my animal magnetism.
    Well I hope that while turning the TV off with your animal magnetism, you're turning the guy watching it on...

    Now THAT would be a useful skill.

    It's funny that you mention that. There was a time that a friend and I who were working on something that night, were really stressed out. We were walking with mundane friends, so we couldn't say anything. But we walked under a gas station on the way back to the college, and all the lights just went out. They were out for two days after that too.

    I've had the street light thing happen before. I always laugh when it does. It amuses me greatly, but unfortunately I haven't been able to do it by practice yet. But I'm still trying.
