The Street Light Conspiracy

This post is mostly to show off my groovy new icon. Look at it! It's art. Everybody heaps praise on sillk.

Now to provide some written substance. How's everyone going? Personally, work's been driving me batty lately. Speaking of going batty, have you ever gone past a street light that has turned on or off right as you've walked under it? It's kind of freaky, right? Well, at the corner of my block, there's this one street light that turns on or off every time I walk past. Without fail! What's the deal?

Poll #1413783 The Street Light Conspiracy

Is it:

You're paranoid, Sin! It’s just a coincidence x1000.
It's obviously just that the light is attuned to the bus and train timetables, so that no matter what bus or train you take home there’s a high chance of it flicking off or on at the exact moment you pass by.
You must spend too much time in front of a computer; the static field is interfering with the switching mechanism.
Clearly there is some sadistic person with too much time on their hands watching and laughing from their window every day as they attempt to freak you out, and SUCCEED.
You must have superpowers! Quick, how can you use this to fight crime?

Interesting! So if you're a genius scientist, does that mean magic doesn't work in your presence either? :O

MAYBE. 8D it only happens if you belieeeve!

ROFL I have a similar experience - my uni campus last year used to be an insane asylum. We have a real dungeon in it and everything, rooms that only have one door and no windows, ex-padded rooms that were turned into classrooms etc. It's already a really freakin' scary place to be in the day, and a really REALLY freakin' scary place to be at night.

There's one particular dark corridor where, after a long night editing my film and it's like 2am and I'm going home, the light ALWAYS makes a crackling noise and switches itself on whenever I walk past. I'm amazed that I never end up shitting my pants, considering I'm always alone in the whole campus when it happens.

Maybe we both have superpowers? XD (Or maybe both our lights just have sensors. :P But that's the less fun answer).

THAT'S SO COOL! And scary!

Shush. I'm not supposed to be on, but... ;__;

I voted for the sadistic person with too much time on their hands. :| :| I shall pass my paranoia onto you by adding that they probably know even smaller details, because they'll have those sniper microscopes watching and taking notes at the changes everyday.

...fkslksdf, Sin, this evidently means you need to change your route home. D: Something is out to get you!

/ends out-of-mind crack

Now you've done it. There's an extra five minutes on my daily route. .___.

Your icon is sexy.

Sinn, you've always had superpowers, this is just a new one you've discovered... So, how exactly are you going to use it to fight crime? ;D
Jun. 11th, 2009 11:28 am (UTC)
Isn't it? Look, I'm going to use it again.

Jun. 10th, 2009 05:53 pm (UTC)
I have this mental image of Inui watching you from his window and making notes in a notebook. After all this time, he still hasn't got over you, Master.

PS: also mwahaha look at my icon! i am going to abuse it every time I leave a comment for you, since you are probably the only person on my f-list who will understand how glorious it is. :D

*____* Please do! I could never, ever, EVER get tired of that icon.
Jun. 10th, 2009 07:34 pm (UTC)
Takeshi's castle FTW! I loved that show. And it was like, my first contact with Japanese culture ever :D Do they still air it?

I voted random sadistic person - it's obvious someone's out to get you! Chances are they're also reading your livejournal.

Did you read bokurano 63?
Jun. 11th, 2009 11:31 am (UTC)
I don't know! I haven't seen it on for years! They should bring it back! Instant ratings success.


I did. .___. And just.... wow. He's really doing it. THE PANEL WITH THE LITTLE GIRL'S BAG WILL HAUNT ME FOREVER.

haha...glad you like the icon that much *twirlling around in happiness*

noooo...your problem... *caressing her chin*

...yeah, me the it-person says you've acquired a special aura from being too much time in front of a computer, much like how super heros attain their super powers after being exposed to nuclear waste.

which "super" power you got?

oh, the electronic equipment acknowledge as one of their kind!

BUT! cause a comp's not as gasp-worthy as nuclear waste, the only electronic equipment that has acknowledged you so far is that one single street lamp, which is flirting with you!

yes, dear sin, you charmed a street lamp to wink at you every time you pass it! ♥

BUT! if you're going to spent even more time in front of a computer, then some day, other electronic equipment will acknowledg you as well!

like, a "normal" human is fighting with a computer to do what the "normal" human wants, the "normal" human screams for help....and BAM! just by you stepping in front of it...the computer's obedient!

or, the radio is not picking up a good programm, you go near it and BAM! good music, good music!

...yes.... *nods totally serious*

oh...and my question last time:

hehe. i assumed as much ♥

good choice. very good.... kekekekeke

...and noo~ow i won't tell you what i'm going to do with your answer.

\o/ Mwa ha ha, locked and loaded!

Thank you so much! You are like my supplier of crack, um, I mean, icons, crap, I mean... crack icons? :D

THE ICON AND WALLPAPER ARE FABULOUS! At last my LJ and desktop will match. ^__^ I nicked the 1024 one, btw.
Jun. 17th, 2009 06:17 pm (UTC)
weeeeeeeeeeeee~~♥ !!

i'm so happy you like them! and you even saw them today still! ♥

you're awake longer than i thought you'd be!

*whipping out green notebook* sinnatious, aka sin, aka genius, even online at (looks at time and calculate time difference) 12:31 PM on weekdays, owner (and master!) of a 1024x768 monitor... *scribble*

sin's personal icon cracker *munch munch*, good line for a t-shirt! ^__^

and speaking of crack, look at what i found while i googled for photoshop-material (for the record: it wasn't me! not my fault! no!):


ryoma has such sexy legs, don't you think? ♥

and don't ask my why it popped up with the keywords ("prince of tennis" chibi) i gave...i was just huh? OMG! *stares* *stares* ... *rolls on the floor*
Jun. 18th, 2009 12:05 pm (UTC)
Aha, I had seen that one before, BUT I NEVER EVER GET TIRED OF IT. Particularly Eiji's love-me chain of Oishis! XDDD And Inui really does fit the Sailor Mercury shop too well. AND TEZUKA HAS EARRINGS. Oh man, I'm going to go read Kaorichan's Sailor Moon au again. *__*

The significant part is that I really shouldn't be up until midnight on a weekday, but it seems to happen anyway. What's up with that? It must be all the crack you keep feeding me. :P
Jun. 24th, 2009 06:37 pm (UTC)
ooohh...sin watched sailor moon as well?
.........hey, did you watched the he-man or she-ra cartoons in your childhood, too? ^-*

love-me chain? oh, and i thought oishi's a ring of planets. or satellites? ^___^
yeah, tez's earrings are great. and i really love taka-san's muscle arm... XD
hmm...which sailors are fuji and eiji? (ugly light orange-pink? bogey light yellow-green?)

...huh? did kaori-chan write a fic for this picture?
oh, how could i miss that (and the pic)?!

*runs off to rummage through kaori's LJ*

Similar experience. The elevator doors always open before i press the button. Even though it's been on the same floor and there's no one inside. =x I was so creeped out when it first happened.
Jun. 16th, 2009 12:33 pm (UTC)
:O The elevator likes you. Now let's just hope that 'like' doesn't turn into an unrequited obsession and one day, when you're in the elevator, it stops, and the lights go out, and... damn, there's a movie in here somewhere.

hmmmm....as long as there's no red carpet rolling out for dear kanaga when the door opens..........like a tongue..........................wwbrrrrrrrrr.......that's really a creepy thought, sin!
