Last night, I dreamt that I saw GE Evolve LED fixtures for sale at Lowe's. A few that I saw were canopy lights, linear striplights, and even yardblasters. The design of the yardblasters was like that of a shoebox fixture, except that it had a slipfitter. No, I didn't buy any!

I had a dream that all the LEDs were replaced back to cobrahead fixtures, and I was gonna go on lighting gallery and say "OMG GUYS THEY BROUGHT COBRAHEADS BACK!"



But alas, I woke up.

Last night, I had a dream that I was in some US History class and I was taking a free response quiz and I had to define what a “halfpiper” fluorescent light fixture was as one of the questions.

Hey guys, it’s been a while since I’ve visited the forum but totally random I had a vivid lighting related dream. I grew up in farm area with an old fence and trees surrounding the rectangular property. The electric fence had insulators that my dad and I would collect as a kid. This was the early 1980’s however I would date the fence to 50’s or earlier that’s what my dad thought but it coulda maybe been 1800’s for all we know. There were oak trees that I’d climb as a kid and as my interest came about with lighting I’d dreamed of putting up fixtures around the property unfortunately my parents did not support my lighting hobby. So just lastnite I came into a dream where I was sneaking down the edge of the property at night One of my parents were sleeping I was still a kid and there was a house with an old lady living facing our border (in reality there was no one for a half mile ) and on one of the oak trees there was a Mercury yard blaster. Her dog saw me and was making a bit of a commotion but she didn’t wake up. I was nervous but wanted to put a new photocell, ballast, and bulb in the fixture as it was extinguished for years. I climbed the tree replaced the photo cell and ballast by moonlight lol!!! and the dog started barking once I got the bulb out of the package and I saw her turn a light on as I rushed to screw in a clear Westinghouse Lifeguard and I woke up. My idea was to fix the light so that I can enjoy it and figured she wouldn’t even notice LoL!

Last night I dreamt that I found a string of orange coated miniature Christmas light strings.  The wire string are white.  The bulb itself is a simple tube with a similar diameter of fluorescent light starter glowbottle.  When I plug the string in, about 1/3 of the string lit up with faint orange colour.  I inspected one or more bulbs, it seems to have self ballasted discharge lamp with a similar electrical principle of screw in germicidal lamp (ballast and discharge vessel working in parallel circuit).  More and more of these bulbs strike up glowing with incandescent light glow and discharge lamp working in tandem.  That was it.

A few nights ago, I had a dream that a former LG member was a convicted felon... He was involved in gray market sales, murder threats, and physical abuse. :poof: He installed FCO 3,000K LED teardrops in various places and even sold T-shirts supposedly commemorating "the 100th anniversary of GE street lighting." (Not true.) He sold those at very high prices at about $50 each. Regarding the LED teardrops, he threatened anyone who touched them or the pole they were on would be killed. Someone actually did, and he went to hunt that person down. Eventually, he was arrested.

Scariest dream I've had in a very long time...

Well that's a colourful dream to say the least. Usually when I dream about lighting, it's about finding a rare lamp/fixture.

Last night I had a dream where I somehow managed to smash one of my German made Osram CFL bulbs without even touching it.
