    Watches And Light Bulbs

    I have completely given up on wearing a watch. I was constantly killing wind up ones and draining batteries on ones that had them.  It drove me nuts. I also went through so many incandescent bulbs!  I was happy when they started coming out with "longer lasting" bulbs. Yeah...

    I Drain Watch Batteries!

    I don't know if you could actually classify my as a "slider" exactly... I do a lot more than screw with electronics. I seem to be able to manipulate energy somehow when I am in an extreme mood (angry, upset, excited). I've been trying to learn to control it for years but without...

    This has happened to me a lot and never really thought about it. I thought it was strange but didn't think that it really was something that i was "doing". it happends to me every week at least once. Sometimes the same light sometimes different ones. So strange..............

    I haven't ever been able to wear wrist watches.
