pixelasleep, sleep

Am I the only one?

Am I the only one
who can feel electrical items *
vibrating when I touch them
while they are on charge?

Am I the only one
who can see fluorescent lights
flickering and scintillating
whether or not I have a migraine?

Am I the only one
who can hear electric cables humming
when the devices they are connecting to the mains
are on stand-by or even switched off?

* Such as my Palm Tungsten in it's mains cradle, my iPhone3G in its USB cradle connected to my mac and the Sony Reader Pocket on the sales display in the bookshop that is running off the mains charger (my SRP does not vibrate when charging using USB).
