I was sitting being sick. My parents are getting mad at me for turning the a/c on so I pulled out the old Honeywell fan. I plugged it into my surge protector and switched it on. The first thing I hear is the printer which is also plugged into the surge protector make the noise you hear when printers turn on of the thing going back and fourth. For fun I turn the fan off and wait a few minutes. I turn it back on and what do I hear? The printer. Very weird.

Now that is weird cuz I have a Honeywell heater that’s plugged in with my pc, scanner and printer, but it doesn’t do that.

I don't know, here let me try. I have swapped the fan plug with one of the others. I say one of the others because it might take one fourth of an hour to figure that much out. Here we go. Drum roll......

I turned it on for 15 seconds turned it off and the printer did its thing. But I noticed an additional thing. There where did kind of ringing bells on my computer. I am scared. I think my machine is haunted.
