    so for those of you for whom sensors don't work - -- Are you lucky enough that the various seasonal decorations that are motion activated don't work for you?

    I've discover a few over the years, most notably...

    • I can move my eyeballs independently of each other, not unlike a chameleon.
    • While I can't actually make myself invisible, I can achieve such a level of inconspicuousness that I am, for all intents and purposes, practically invisible.
    • Given enough time, I can change the weather through sheer force of will.
    • I can accurately diagnose electrical problems solely by smell.
    • I can tickle small children into hysterics just by looking at them... An odd variation on the "Evil Eye", you might say.
    • My lap attracts household pets in the same the way that Aquaman's forehead attracts sea creatures.

    It follows the same ratio for me. Some stuff triggers, some stuff doesn't.


    My 17 year old cousin has one: he triggers security sensors. No, I'm not joking about him being a shoplifter. Every once in a while, they light up for him. Going in OR going out- never both.

    Insert dirty punch line of choice here.

    Maybe it's because of that time you sold your soul...

    I've done that dozens of time to no effect, so it can't be that!

    Mine is limited to hand sensors, probably infrared, so sinks and towel dispensers and other short-range things. Grocery store doors and other longer-range sensors work fine.

    I've leased my soul on several occasions but have yet to sell it outright.

    The trick is to only sell your soul to those entities in which you already own a controlling share. Despite multiple sales, I still own 89% of my soul.

    I tried the whole soul selling thing, but I was deemed worthless. Maybe I should try out forces of chaos, they seem to like me.

    I discovered today that I can text one-handed while riding my bike.

    This will one day contribute to me being yet another bad driver on the road I'm sure.

    I apologize in advance.
