This may sound silly, but something happened last night that I currently have no explanation for. I slept a bit early last night, hoping to catch up on sleep that I lost during the long weekend, which was also further stretched from the long drive back and stress at work upon my return. While sleeping, I remember having a dream – the details are gone now, but I was doing something with my hands, and I remember there being electricity or power of some type. All of a sudden, I was awakened from sleep by loud crackling, static, and booming coming from the bookshelf speakers and subwoofer in my room. As soon as the noise stopped, I heard the clothes dryer downstairs buzz. When I went over to the receiver that my speakers were plugged into, it was in protection mode, which indicates a power surge. However, when I checked on the computers, they were still running fine and the surge protector showed no indication of a power surge. I even went downstairs to check on all the other electronics and everything seemed to be fine. I didn’t bother to check the dryer, but that was because I knew that my parents were doing laundry.
Also, now that I think about it, I didn’t hear any indication outside of a storm of any type. So, how would a surge like that happen? It’s unexplainable.
That’s how I came to the conclusion that I might have super powers.
Well, I’m sure that there’s actually a logical and coincidental explanation for this, but it’s nice to dream once in a while. Also, because it took me a while to go back to sleep, I am still tired today. Darn it.
EDIT (2009.06.24): It turns out that the receiver was faulty – there’s a hairline crack in the PCB where people have reported that model to have issues due to pressure from the mounting in the same area. The clothes dryer buzzing at the same time was coincidental.
