wikipedia says: Electromagnetism is one of the four fundamental interactions of nature. Electromagnetism is responsible for practically all the phenomena encountered in daily life, with the exception of gravity.
i’m not entirely sure what that means but i think i may be exceptionally electromagnetic – again. it comes in waves. it was only in the last 10 years i was able to wear a watch. before that they would stop within 5 minutes of putting one on. every type of watch would just die. cheap watches, expensive watches, underwater watches – i just couldn’t wear a watch. i also couldn’t pass through an airport security system without beeping – way before 9-11 – needless to say it was not my watch. or anything at all. i would just set off metal detectors, probably still do but everyone seems to at the airport these days.
i have a bit of a challenge with electronic devices too. in the last 7 years i’ve gone through 6 computers. – 6 – all brand new. 2 hp’s & 3 dell laptops & my last desktop which died for no apparent reason at the age of 3 in 2004.
i’ve had more telephones than anyone i know. my guess is somewhere around 5 or 6 land line phones and approximately 7 cell phones in the last 10 years. if you don’t believe me, just ask ellice. she’ll tell you it’s true. i usually call her when i’m having an electronic meltdown, so she knows what i’m talking about.
sometimes i blow out light bulbs just by walking into a room. i have 4 rooms in my apartment and blew out 4 light bulbs today.
i buy batteries by the case. i watch tv for about an hour at night and yesterday i replaced the batteries in my remote for the 3rd time since june. who does that?
i should probably get off my computer now.
