bulbs will loosten over time from repeated heating and cooling... location and surroundings have alot to do with it..... eventualy to the point where the contacts corrode and the light no longer functions..

A good run is better than a bad stand!

Could have used the "5 Californians" version.

1 person screws in the lightbulb and the other four "share the experience"!

I am a legend in my own mind!

When you sleep, does the house rotate clockwise or counterclockwise as seen from above. Mine goes clockwise, so the bulbs in the ceiling get tighter, and those in the table lamps eventually fall out.

So this weekend my 3 year old hands me the glass part of a bulb he just picked up off the floor. I look up and one of the recessed R20 Halogena's just broke cleanly at the base and fell to the floor. Good thing it hit the rug and didn't break.

Clearly, your house is haunted.

One of the weirdest things I've seen on a job site was hinge pins working their way out of the hinge without the door actually being moved.

That would be a slick trick if you could do it on demand.

The mice are dead, so are the rats. Varmints.
