My clairvoyant left thigh

I think my left thigh is clairvoyant

Let me explain. I carry my cellphone in my left trouser pocket, usually in a vibrate-only mode. So whenever a call comes in, I rely on my left thigh to sense the vibration and alert me. The buzzing creates a nice tingly sensation.

A few times in the last couple days, however, I noticed that the tingly sensation in my thigh preceeded a real call by around 10 to 20 seconds. It's like my thigh feels this rumble, and I'd say to myself - oh I'm getting a call - and take the phone out. Soon, lo and behold, my cellphone starts ringing

Dudes, I am so stoked. This is like, so cool (high-five).

Just an aside : I always wake up 2 minutes ahead of the time i set on my alarm clock (i hate waking up with a start when the alarm goes off) and i've set it at different times on different days.

Good thing you don't carry your cell phone in the back pocket.

Your skin/muscles might start sensing the microwaves that your phone is emitting, while it is opening a connection for an incoming call. No kidding.

...coupled with a strange smell of cooked pork...

I've actually stopped carrying my mobile phone in my shirt breast pocket because I used to get mild aches around my left nipple area. It took me a long time to associate the phone with the aches but since I moved it, no more aches. Now I keep it in my bag and NEVER in my trouser pocket. Hmm...

Exactly what I though. try carrying your phone in your right pocket..and then see if your left thigh still has its supernatural powers!

Hmm... Does not it sound sexy? Might be a good idea for a high-tech sex toy Or next generation phone-sex?

Oh, man... Does it make you this hot?

Oh, man... Does it make you this hot? - Its hard to get excited with an image of boil-in-the-bag testicles in my head

Oh, you must have gotten a very powerful battery in your phone, if this threat looked so real to you I need one of those to jump start my truck. Where did you get yours?

All this publicity has caused my recalcitrant thigh to stop augering calls. Humph - let's classify this incident under Coincidences as 'The Case of the Clairvoyant Thigh', and close it, shall we?

Now when you have accepted that its a coincidence, I have a different problem. I get 'same' sensation in my thigh, even when I am not carrying my mobile.
