Reddit user Zokrar discovered that whenever his cat sits on his touch-lamp, he could activate the lamp by touching his cat’s nose.
And of course to the rescue, redditor Jokesonyounow explains why this happens.
With a touch lamp you can make a daisy chain / train of people. As far as it goes all the people will act as the touch surface. So if 10 people are connected to the lamp the 11th person will be able to use any part of the 10th person as a button ;). Similarly, if the first person is electrocuted so will all the rest. Just saying.
I still would like to believe that this is witchcraft.
