Silly title notwithstanding, this is actually quite intriguing . . .

Spaced out, or switched on? Aliens blew up our fridge

"We are not saying little green men from Mars started the fires, but that unnatural forces capable of creating a large amount of electromagnetic energy were responsible. This is just one possibility. We are also looking at another one which involves the testing of top-secret weapons by an unknown power which are also capable of producing an enormous amount of energy."

This contrasts with Father Amorth's explanation. "I've seen things like this before," he said. "Demons occupy a house and appear in electrical goods. Let's not forget Satan and his followers have immense powers."

While we all know, of course, that in actuality it was SATAN who was setting fire to fridges and other appliances in the small Italian town. (This was the Vatican's conclusion, at any rate, apparently.)

Yeah, count on a priest to give you a no-nonsense explanation.

I wonder if the extended warranty applies in this instance!

I, for one, blame it on our energy being overlords, who I welcome, except when their electrical equivalent to testosterone reaches levels that result in my unplugged toaster igniting. That's just not right!

And then there's this incident:

Hartsville, Tennessee, about 30 miles northeast of Nashville, where mysterious,
destructive power surge killed dozens of birds and damaged transmitter, phone lines
and computer equipment at country music radio station WJKM (1090 AM) on Friday,
July 6, 2001 at 10:45 a.m. CST.

There hasn't been an explanation for it, has there?
