Weird Tech: Magnetic boy freezes Xbox 360

A 12-year-old-boy whose inability to touch a PC without it crashing nearly caused him to fail his social studies class, has been diagnosed as having a "static problem".

Dubbed 'Magneto Man', Joe Falciatano repeatedly disrupted slide show presentations and caused his Xbox to inexplicably freeze, before a teacher finally suggested he wear a grounded, anti-static wrist strap.

I can really relate to this! An old friend of mine, who i have not seen in years, had a very similar effect on my computer. NO JOKE. This was back in the late 90s. At first, i would joke with him about it. I would always want to show him things on the computer, but every time he stopped over and sat down, the computer would freeze up, errors would occur, software wouldn't operate properly, couldn't get online. EVERY TIME! I noticed the pattern was a regular thing when we tried to play PC games together, and things would be fine until he got there, then everything went to crap.

It wasn't just my computer either, other people had the same issue when he was next to their computers. Freaky thing...
