Quick example--MRD posts Maybe it's some weird electical currents in the body, but more likely is that your body is acting as an extention of the antenna, or in the case of being near a TV or radio and improving reception, the body is reflecting additional radio waves toward the antenna.
    I did not post that, Archie did.

    So you're "all-knowing" powers don't include reading comprehension??

    Oops! My face is redder than a baboon's butt. I guess I'm better at knowing what going to happen than I am at knowing what has already happened.

    Hang on . . . I'm getting something . . . MRD will have a conflict with her neighbor, but there will be no criminal charges filed . . .

    South Park did an episode on skepticism some years ago; it's one of my favorite episodes. Stan Marsh takes on John Edwards (the Crossing Over phony) and does a pretty good job of explaining some of the tricks used by psychics.

    It only happens with street lights. I think that if it were really something about me in particular, the bulbs in my home would be affected. I sure could use a lower electric bill, though. Maybe I should concentrate more.

    Re: Those psychic moments

    I don't have a psychic bone in my body, but I have a few good stories that I think are pretty cool. Sorry if they are long and disjointed:

    As my sister and I sat by my moms hospice bedside, knowing that it could be at any time, my sister said "I don't think it will be long now" as my sister saw a flash of light behind me. We looked at the clock and it was 12:30 a.m. As it turned out, she hung on until exactly 12:30 p.m. the next day.
    We finally get home and my sister started making the phone calls. Her first call was to my Aunt (moms sis) and my Aunt said she knew mom had already passed the night before because she woke up at 12:30 a.m. and the closet light was on. She figured mom was saying goodbye. My sister then said that mom didn't pass the night before, but just a few hours before at 12:30. My other Aunt had the same exact experience with a light on at 12:30 that woke her up, and assumed the same. The two Aunts even called each other asking if they had heard from us yet. We all know that mom was saying goodbye, but we can't figure out what the 12:30 time meant, or why it was 12 hours later, but we figure that sometimes it just takes awhile for someone to actually be really ready to go, and they may hover for awhile. Of course, my completely non believer husband pointed out that there is a time difference between where we were, and each of the Aunts were, but it doesn't matter to me- somethings just can't be explained.
    Another story: my brother had been a drug and alchohol abuser for years. Finally, my dad had enough (my mom had had enough a few years earlier) and told him "I don't want to see you again until you have been clean and sober for 5 years" No one heard from him after that and we didn't know where he was or anything. We even talked about what would we do if something happened to our parents and we couldn't find him. Anyway, my mom suddenly fell ill. It started as one thing, but then snowballed into a bunch of other things until she passed away 5 months later. She was in hospital the entire time. Anyway, out of the blue my brother calls. He was just checking in and incidently- he had been clean and sober for 5 years! Fortunately he was able to go see my mom (she lived 2000 miles away) and they were able to talk and my mom was relieved he was okay and sober. That was such a blessing to us because she worried about him constantly. Anyway- we talked about how weird it was that we hadn't heard from him in years and mom gets sick and he suddenly shows up. So my sister asked him why he called when he did (he had no real reason- he just called) He said that for about a month he kept dreaming of my grandmother (on my dads side) and in the dream grandma kept telling him to "Call your mother!" The dream started slowly and then kept getting more persistant until my brother woke up one day and threw his hands in the air and decided to call. When he did, he found out mom was very sick.
    I'll remember more later

    Mikesgal, your story gave me chills.

    All these stories are fascinating, and remind me of something that happened many years ago. I was house-hunting, spending a great deal of time with a realtor on the weekends looking for just the right place. Nothing ‘spoke’ to me, when suddenly, we walked into a house, and I had this overwhelming feeling that I ‘knew’ everything about it. I knew where the kitchen was, the bedrooms, placement of bathrooms, etc. It was definitely talking to me, and I loved the color scheme, property and the price was right. I bought it, moved in and became good friends with all my neighbors. I kept hearing about this fellow who owned the house across the street from me, but rarely lived there because he worked all over the world. Six months later, he showed up on my porch with a bottle of wine to introduce himself…you all know him as Mr. Rose. For years we knew that Fate had stepped in big time - had I not bought the house, I never would have met my husband. Well, about 5 years later a woman I once worked with, but had moved away years earlier, called me out of the blue. When she realized where I was living she said, “That’s amazing, that’s where I used to live! Remember when you came to my house once?” I’ll be damned, she was right. I had been inside her house once, probably five years before I had bought mine. I didn’t buy her precise house, but a model exactly like hers. So much for my psychic powers.

    Re: Those psychic moments

    I was reminded today of my most celebrated "psychic" moment . . .

    We were doing a particularly difficult section survey, a long way from the office. The County Engineer's office had very old references to a particular 16th corner that we really, really needed, but we couldn't find the damn thing or its reference marks despite a many hours of digging and probing (it was limestone, so our metal detector was useless.) We finally gave up and went back to the office, and the next day we were going to do some seriously convoluted measurements to re-establish that corner. The night before we went back, I had a dream that I was in Heaven (oh stop laughing :nono I said it was a dream ) and I was talking with some old-timer. He said to me, "You remember that survey you did near Latham? I was the one who set the 16th corner. You missed it by 6" with your probe." When we went out there the next morning, I said what the heck, and we dug a little farther north. Darned if we didn't find the "missing" corner, and darned if it wasn't 6" from one of our existing probe holes.

    Re: Those psychic moments

    I remembered another one! My MIL passed away about 14 years ago. On the one year anniversary of her death, my husband called his dad. He wasn't home, but got the answering machine. The weird thing was he got the outgoing message - given by his mom! He was speechless! His father had changed that message many months before- we had all called and heard it. Upon investigating, the new message was back in place given by his dad. No one ever heard that message again. I say it was just her telling him she was fine, but of course he has other explanations. (but I know better

    Re: Those psychic moments

    This one will sound a little whacko to some of you... my 3rd pregnancy had several complications and they wanted to schedule an induced labor before my due date to be sure I'd have a specialist on hand. A store owner I had become friendly with warned me that changing an unborn baby's astrological sign could have catastrophic effects. She was very insistant about this, so I scheduled it for the 20th of the month - the first day (I thought) of the next sign's cycle. I discovered later that that sign actually changed on the 21st but didn't want to change the labor date just for that fact. It did sort of gnaw at the back of my mind, though, so one night I gave myself the suggestion pre-sleep, that I would wake up during the night with some sign about whether it was ok or not. I woke up just as the clock downstairs started chiming 11:00 and the clear message in my head that an 11th hour birth was just perfect. She was born just hours before the next sign and has the best qualities of both Taurus and Gemini, grounded but verbally agile.
    Now my firstborn is another story. Lightning struck the hospital the exact moment she was born - and it wasn't even raining!
    Count your blessings!

    Re: Those psychic moments

    I'm a firm believer. I've had too much happen and seen too much to shrug it off as my imagination. Seriously.

    When I was 11, we moved from our rented property to another rental house about a mile down the road. My step-dad liked to rent dilapidated homes and make a deal with the owners. Drop the rent and he would fix it up the house. Fix cracks in the walls, replace floors, paint...stuff like that. One night I had a horrible dream that myself and my sisters kids were trapped in the barn of the house we had just vacated. It was burning..everything in there was on fire. Yet, the barn wasn't actually burning down...it was just flaming. A week later, we drove past that house and to my dismay...the barn stood proud, but the house had burned to the ground. It was very creepy. A lot of stuff, to this day, comes to me when I dream. Probably explains why I am a chronic insomniac.

    I was 26 years old, about to get married (for the second and last time..lol) and I had never met my real father. I had always wanted to, but never felt like I had my life together enough to deal with it. 2 weeks before the wedding, I just had this sense of calm wash over me. I knew this marriage was a good thing (we celebrate our 7th anniversary next month) and that finally, I was where I was supposed to be in my life. It was a wonderful feeling. I called my mom (who didn't want me to meet my dad) and demanded she get his number for me. Relunctantly, she did. I was sweating when I called him. A cold sweat. Anyway, I talked to him and he didn't have any doubt. I guess he kind of knew about me, but mom wouldn't have any contact with him. He had separated from his wife when I 'happened' but had gotten back together with her. Anyway, I found out I had 4 sisters! I talked to them all on the phone and finally met them 2 weeks after my wedding. I was with them all day and felt like this was where I belonged. We are very close now. My step-father always had a calming effect on me. He was my rock. I believe that day, my step-dad was telling me it was time. I had always worried it would hurt him and I never wanted to do that. Growing up...he was my dad. When he passed away from lung cancer when I was 14 was the worst day of my life. I've felt his presence off and on my whole adult life. Anyway, I just know it was him when that calm fell over me. It gave me the strength to do something I always wanted to do but was always afraid to.

    My sisters duplex is haunted. The weird thing is...whenever there is activity, it happens right before something bad happens. Then it stops until there is another crisis on the horizon. Drawers will open and close, closet doors will slide shut, knick knacks move, depressions on the beds, toilets flush, jewelry is moved...I've even witnessed a box full of tools slide from a secure spot on the landing, only to topple down the steps with not a soul near it. The last time was the worst. My sister dealt with quite a bit of strangeness. More than ever before...then a couple of days later she got bad news. Her oldest daughter was pregnant with baby #2 and she had just found out that it had Anencephaly. Whenever my sister calls me and says there is activity, we brace ourselves for bad news.
