I have knack for cooking (that and much practice) and an unnatural ability for finding things; Just never let me dig a hole as I always run into wires and cables, even when they're not supposed to be there.
True story I was working at my uncle's house rebuilding his fence and was going to dig post holes and he had the utility company come mark where their conduit was, which was supposed to be on the other side of the house. NOPE I started digging and *clunk* I hit it, good thing it didn't bust it or I'd be dead. Oddly this was not the first time this has happend, not even the fifth time. It happens so often we joke about not letting me dig the holes.
Personally I think I have some sort of connection with electricity as I seem to get shocked often by static and I now stay away from telephone poles as the lights tend to go out when I get close. Seriously it's happend about five or six times now, twice when I was walking with my dad; Freaked him out a little! XD
