Static electricity always seems to be stronger in the winter.
But can you imagine living with a high static charge all the time, there are people who cannot go near computers, In part due to the excess amount of static electricity on there body's as well as a lack of control on there part, though to be fair this ability can sometimes start and then stop just like that, leaving no time to train it.... People with High voltage syndrome can cause computers to shut down or malfunction. Others must even be careful about something as mundane as pumping gas because just one accidental spark from their fingers can cause the pumps to explode and, possibly, kill them or others. Thankfully, most of us only have a small degree of static charge, but others are not as lucky....
People with "high voltage syndrome". are also called "Electric People". or SLIders which stands for streetlight interference.....
A few well known Electric people........
Caroline Clare, a 17 year old girl from London, Ontario. suddenly became ill in 1877, and rapidly dropped in weight from around 200lbs to only a mere 90 pounds. Caroline had strange unexplainable seizures that would allow her to describe places far from Ontario that she'd never been too. Her illness lasted until she was around 18-1/2 years old, but it did not end there.
Caroline's illness was replaced with strong electric discharges which in turn caused her body to magnetize to the point that anything metal around her would stick to her body. Any metal object, including knives, would fly at her. The magnetic pull was so strong it would take another person to remove it
A girl named Jennie Morgan from Sedalia, Missouri also had this strange ability. It was 1890 and Jennie was a teenager at the time. Sparks would fly from her body in all directions, zapping objects as she passed them. people would also receive strong static electrical shocks when shaking her hand or touching her . People stupid enough to try this would usually end up unconscious. Jennie was not born this way and no explanation could be found as to why she suddenly was so highly charged.
A man named Frank McKinstry also from Missouri, suffered from high voltage syndrome. But in his case, for some reason when he felt charged, he would have to keep moving. If he stopped, he would become stuck to wherever he'd stopped and could only be moved if someone else physically helped him to lift his feet.
This strange phenomenon seems to effect people regardless of age or gender, whether infant, teen, or adult, . One amazing case of an infant, born in 1869 in France, shot glowing bolts of energy from his fingers and would badly shocked anyone who touched him. The child only survived nine months, but at his death, a type of luminous aura was seen to surround his body.
In 1882 a six year old boy and two small infants we're also said to have had high voltage syndrome, the six year old boy gave off an strong shocks to anyone and anything around him. One of the infants was charged enough to light up a leyden jar just by touching it. The other infant could make any object that was close enough to him vibrate and was always surrounded by a soft white light visible to anyone who saw him.
In February of 1976, a 12 year old boy named Vyvyan Jones from Henbury, Bristol broke his arm. For two days after his injury, his hair stood straight up on his head and he gave strong electric shocks to anyone around him. The television and lights were affected by his high voltage syndrome, flickering constantly until he left the room. Watches were also affected.He was able to hold a light bulb in his hand and it would immediately light up. His phenomenon only lasted two days.
As if all this wasn't strange enough, There was another case of electric people/ high voltage syndrome in 1920. this time involving 34 prisoners.
All 34 inmates had a bad case of botulism. The poison obviously made them sick, but for some unknown reason it also caused them to become highly charged with electricity, and for whatever reason the worse the poisoning was, the higher the charge would become . Once they were completely recovered, they were back to normal.
To this day it is unknown as to what exactly causes this condition and the one's suffering from it often fill that they are alone, but there are around 30,000 - 100,000 people world wide that have it to some degree or another..... if you are one of them please fill free to send me a message i would love to talk with you about your experiences !
