miracle in my dorm room?
ok i'm no genius, so this might be a stupid question
i goto to boarding school, and i have one of those plasma globes with the electricity inside, and when you touch it the electricity move to your fingers
anyway, my roomate has this lamp, and i swear to god how it works is beyond me
the lightbulb sits in the bottom of a tall metal box frame , the sides of which are covered with lampshade paper and the top of which is open
it has three intensity settings, and to switch it through the three you lightly rap on the metal of the frame with your finger
BUT: it doesnt work if you shake it, and if you tap it with plastic, metal, or a magnet nothing happens
in addition to all that, if i sit the plasma globe near it and flick it on or touch it, the jesus lamp switches up to the next intensity (after the third it turns off)
i think it might be a midget in my desk drawer, but if anyone knows better PLEASE enlighten me as to whats going on...
