In the upcoming movie, Be Kind Rewind, Jack Black plays a man who becomes "magnetized" and erases all the tapes in the video store where he works. Joseph Falciatano III of Richland can relate.
Joe, 12, began calling himself "Magneto Man" last year, after his teachers concluded that his presence could crash the school computers.
"Another student could use a computer, and it would be fine. But if Joe was on it, weird things started to happen," said Marie Yerdon, computer lab teacher at Lura Sharp Elementary School in Pulaski, NY. "I think there's something in his body chemistry, something in his makeup, that causes the computers to go haywire."
The idea that a human being can be magnetic, electric or electromagnetic is considered paranormal, but a quick Internet search reveals lots of believers.
Many people claim to have a special "aura" that interferes with electrical appliances and watches. There are "SLIders," or people with Street Light Interference, who claim they turn streetlights on and off when they pass under them. And there are those who just seem to have far more computer problems than the average Joe.
i think this kid's dad works here

Also I can't wear a watch. Many years ago they just stopped working when I wore one. I had my watch to the repairers so many time that they just gave up and told me they wouldn't repair it any more because there was nothing wrong with it.

And another thing ... every now and then all the globes in my house blow. Of course I replace them at the same time and then over a period of time they individually need replacing (but not at the same time), then all of a sudden they all go in the one night or afternoon - it's quite spooky!
