My new office is directly next to a Metro line. I would estimate the distance from my body to the tracks to be about 50 feet, at most.
I have been sitting here for a total of 16 hours now – yesterday and today combined and I have been experiencing a very strange bodily symptom. Shut it!
Every once and awhile, my arms, which are resting on my desk as I type on my keyboard begin to shake.
Things I have decided that I might "have" based on this "symptom"
2. Lou Gerhig's Disease
3. My protein drink is rotting my body
4. All my recent exercise has made my body so bursting with muscle that I'm twitching
5. That I'm just really fucked up
6. PMS ?
7. Fear of shaking arms therefore causing shaking arms
9. MASSIVE carpal tunnel
At 5:37 pm, the aircondition had just cut off and the office is totally silent. I heard a Metro go by and I stopped and rested my arms on my desk and waited until the train passed. My arms stopped shaking when the train was out of hearing distance.
So, if a Metro goes by my office, oh, I don't know, every five minutes for eight hours a day, that is roughly ten trains and hour and eighty trains a day – and that is just in one direction!
It has been decided that the energy that the Metro train exerts on the tracks and thus on the ground near my building - well, energy doesn't dissapear, it just gets transfered. So, essentially, Metro is powering my arms.
