Sheesh! Yesterday a lightbulb in my ceiling fixture burned out. Today the other one burned out and didn't I change that one just a couple months ago?! Righto, time to go back to fluorescents.

Current Mood: cynicalcynical
Current Music: sloshy - We don't really even care about you

One of my silly theories is that light bulbs communicate. They talk to each other, synchronizing their burnout to annoy you the most. Even my car and apartment bulbs somehow talked to each other.

And sometimes there's a socket that just seems cursed. Like I had a Volvo that was forever blowing left rear tail light bulbs, and a Ford where I swear I replaced three right headlights for every one left one.

My last car, a Chevy Cavalier, had some persistent trouble with its left rear taillight at one point. When the taillight first started dying, my left turn signal started playing a funky syncopated beat, until it was completely dead, and then it was just clicking twice as fast.

Makes me wonder how the hell the Centennial Bulb has stayed lit for over 100 years.

Well, for one thing, the filament is a lot thicker and sturdier than in modern bulbs.
