This Is Odd...

Okay, check it.

This has happened 3 times now. The 1st time, I thought, well, that was weird. The 2nd time, I thought, wow...what a coincidence! The 3rd time, I thought, okay, why the hell is it doing this??

Last night, I was sitting on the loveseat, watchin' TV. Then all of the sudden, the picture started getting scrambled, and there were voices coming from the TV that sounded like guys talkin' on walkie talkie's or something (I also heard it come out of the computer speakers once too). Then, the lamp behind me next to the computer turns on by itself. When I go to turn off the lamp, I discover that the computer is frozen. I try Ctrl+Alt+Del, but I have to just turn off the main power button on the tower. When I turn the tower back on though, the computer just goes back to the screen it was at when it was frozen; I have to unplug the computer to get it to boot.

Anybody else have this problem ever? It's never happened during a storm or anything...the weather has always been nice when it's happened!

It's obvious your house is haunted.

My tv and computer always talk to me.

Hi. How are you?

They talk to us all, I think, but how many of us take the time to really listen?



In all seriousness, I had problems like that sometimes when I lived in Kentucky (in the middle of nowhere).

It freaks me out! Especially when it happened last week...I was sittin' in the dark, watchin' a creepy show, and then the TV signal goes haywire, I hear strange voices, and a lamp suddenly comes on. Thank God I didn't have to go to the bathroom!!!

Yeah, I used to hear them through the cordless phone sometimes. Once I was at my parent's house alone for a week while my dad and stepmom were in Vegas and my brother's tv came on by itself at 3am with the volume all the way up. It scared me to death!! I haven't had any problems like that living in the DC area, though. I think it had something to do with the electricity out in the country or maybe all the trees.
