How much would this creep you out?

Last night I went to bed, woke up and couldn't get back to sleep, so I go watch a movie in the Man Room. About 3 am my wife comes out and tells me that there is a light flashing by the shed. I look out the door in my undies, and I see the light flash in varying intesities, and seemingly at random intervals. I go get my spotlight and shine it up to the shed, and can't see anything around it. Turn it off, and the light still appears randomly, so I don't think it is a person, or I would have scared them. I go get my sweats, put on a coat, and look for a weapon to take with me. I don't have anything real handy, so I take a didgeridoo. I go up to the shed and I can see that it is coming from a light that is in the shed. That's shouldn't be a big deal, and certainly nothing to freak out about. However, it is an old shed that has power fed to it from another building. The power to the shed is fed by a separate small switch panel. That panel has no wiring in it currently. It was removed years ago because it looked pretty dangerous. There is currently ZERO power in that shed. The wiring consists of a string of 3 lights connected with wire, but that wire is not connected to anything.

Anyway, I pulled the chain to turn it off, and it stopped. Until that time, I didn't really even realize we still had lighting in that shed.

I believe you may want to re-evaluate that claim.

This is like a redneck version of a shaggy story just for the purposes of the digeridoo line.

Being a squatter who normally sleeps in some unsuspecting persons shed (although I do like to read a bit before going to bed), hearing a digeridoo at 3AM would seriously creep me out.

Was there Coors beer involved anywhere?

usually UFO sightings are by some redneck in the middle of no where driking coors beer, we have the first two requirements confirmed and just waiting confirmation of the 3rd. If there was coors involved than this is most certainly a UFO sighting.

That's a pretty good symbolic rendering of what goes on there, you know, to "clean it up".

I refuse to believe I am in the minority of people who own one. And that isn't the point, anyway.

so.. someone was in your shed with a flashlight? Or you SAW the bulb in the shed being on when it shouldnt of been?

It could be that some kids were playing with the electric panel and turned it on. Kids like playing with electricity.

There was a bulb in the shed that was coming on and off, but there is no power to that shed. It used to have power, but the wiring has been severed completely, and has been that way for over a decade.

They say that when someone dies in a powerful rage. A curse is made.


However, the curse can be lifted by the dulcet tones of a digeridoo.

Perhaps you need to take your trusty multimeter and check it out?

The image of you prancing around in the dark in your underwear, while wielding a didgeridoo, would scare the living hell out of me. The shed thing is just sort of weird.
