Spooky lamp-post

Lined along the streets near my home are many streetlights on electric poles. Most are the sodium-lamp type, but one particular lamp, about 150 yards from my home, gives white light instead of the typical yellowish light that sodium lamps emit.

It's fairly normal. Looking from a distance, or even up close, you wouldn't see anything different with either the lamp-post or the lamp itself. However - for the past one week, I have noticed one spooky thing - every time I walk past it, it reverses its state. i.e. Turns itself off it it's on and vice versa. Bizzarre! It doesn't happen when other people walk by it. The only trend I see is that I usually walk past it during evenings/nights (7 PM - 9:30 PM).

So I wanted to test this. While I went out for some shopping today, I stayed a little away from it for a few minutes, waiting for someone else to walk past it. Two people did, but nothing happened... It was turned off. I walked by... and just as I was about 2 meters from it - it lit up! :-/

On my way back, I was looking at it (it was lit up), thinking if it will turn itself off when I walk past. There were about 4-5 people walking ahead and behind me. They all walked by, but nothing happened. Nothing happened when I was 2 meters from it. I thought - finally - those were just co-incidences. Next thing I know is it turned itself off, when I crossed it. :-/

What would you attribute this to?

haha ... fooled you! I was the one switching it on/off all the time!

hahaha... thanks but I really need an explanation Mr. S. I know you cant do it from 250 km away :-P

after your posting stuff on teleportation and the like, i thought u wouldnt be surprised at such a simple marvel ... if you'd call it a "marvel" at all!!

well, it was just a simple quantum entanglement of the switch ... :D

And I walked past it again an hour ago, just to test... bloody thing lit up again :-/

HOLA!
That is so crazy! Maybe your body produces some weird chemical or hormone that makes street lamps change state. Or maybe you're Dumbledore.
ADIOS!~Kiersten~
