...I'd love to have one of the exhaust fan/light combo that have blue night light LED over the shower. It would be so relaxing with the blue glow...

When I was a kid I was afraid of those halogen torchiere floor lamps, believe it uses the double ended quartz bulb. One day I was playing around with a paper airplane in the house and accidentally got it on top of the lamp while it was on. Saw some smoke from the burning paper, scared the heck out of me but good thing my parents were home at the time.

Well why else do you think they have the word "torch" in their name?

Xenon projection lamps!When those go-like a grenade going off!and damage to repair-replace.Esp with new digital projectors-when the Xenon bulb lets go-you may have to replace an EXPENSIVE light engine.If the bulb fails under the lamp warranty-then the bulb maker pays for it!

Vintage HID Lamp & Luminaire Collector

I can't really say that a light in of itself ever scared me, but being on a 50' boom  doing lighting repair in windy weather can be quite difficult.

My worst experience was working 40' above ground on a pole and being told by the maintenance personnel that the luminaire operates on 277V and not having a way to shut the power down. After hooking up the common conductor, the ballast began to hum, which I though was odd. Next I hooked up the 277V lead, and within seconds the ballast burst into flames like starting a BBQ. I couldn't back the bucket away fast enough. Come to find out someone screwed up the feeder (someone had done some under ground work near the pole) and it was actually 480V. I didn't have a 480V ballast on my truck, so I had to come back later and I brought a co-worker in case something else went wrong.

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

Yep, especially if you're walking around at night and the light is still hot!
