I have been getting word from one of the members that manual preheating of preheat fluorescent lamps makes them last the longest because when a preheat fluorescent lamp is switched on, emissions from the cathodes get sputtered on the inside of a fluorescent tube every time a preheat fluorescent lamp flashes with a starter in place. I just wonder why so many of us enjoy blink happy preheat fluorescent lighting?

Yikes, glad to hear you're okay. That car is definitely sketchy for sure.

That's unfortunate the car didn't have plates on it. I always find a car sketchy if it doesn't have plates on it.


Me too, definitely a sketchy car. Another weird thing is that once it started going towards me, the headlights were turned off.

I hope police were made aware of this. Glad to hear you got away

I had my iPad with me, and I tried to take photos, but scarily the car had NO LICENSE PLATES on it. ???

Well, I知 lucky to be alive to post this topic right now. Today, I went for a walk at night on Mission Oaks Blvd in Camarillo, CA. I was just enjoying some incandescent Christmas lights along the houses on that road, and I saw a dark object moving in the distance. Near the end of the road, where the street lighting started, a car (Jeep, if I remember correctly) came down the road at an extreme speed (Probably at least 70 MPH). The person was obviously drunk, swerving all over the place and hitting the curb multiple times. I was on the sidewalk about 10 feet away, and I tried to get away from the car as fast as possible. The car immediately turned off its headlights and sped up, heading straight for me. I just jumped into the landscaping on the side of road and the car hit the curb hard, swerving away again and driving through the median. The car continued on the wrong side of the road up to a major intersection. I really hope it didn稚 hurt anyone.  :'( I知 happy to be alive and able to be here on LG....
