When we get all of the SOX wattages fired up at once, we won't be able to hide it from anybody in the street.!!  Cheesy

Funny story from my days living at home, oddly enough mum and dad didn’t mind me running, (among others) a 22000 lumen 135watt SOX in my bedroom!! Roll Eyes, they called me a ‘nutty professor’ who locked himself away in his -lab-!, but I started to get a reputation from the neighbouring houses behind us.......
At the time mum worked behind the bar at the local sports and social club, and people who lived in these houses were always asking her, “what exactly is going on in your lads room at night”!!!  Grin Grin Grin

I sort of hide it as in I don't really tell people about it but if you went to my house you'd find out. I don't mention it to my mates at school as I am in year 10 (15-16yo) and people that age are brutal so I just hide it to fit in. They aren't really my mates although one or two are. My real mates know about it tho as they are all people I met on a lighting page Smiley

If you're only 16 years old @LightsDelight, the good news is that as time goes on, you will quickly see that
they will begin to become mature. *Normally* this is the case lol

Everything is in service in the barn. Most shop lights are on chains above workbenches and most ceiling lights are recessed pl-l parabolic fixtures. There are also random louvred and half pipe fixtures.

If people don’t like fluorescent and  HPS lighting they can leave, door is down the main hallway and to the right. It’s a free country.

I don't dislike High quality led lamps, but vintage usually wins.

I honestly don't care. I've brought lights to school before. I'm known as the light guy at my school.

One of my friends, knows about it, but that's about it. I don't talk about it other than with a family otherwise, and all of my lamps, sockets and fixtures are packed in boxes, out of sight.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

Same here. I don't go around telling people but if people see me with it I tell them. Most of my friends I have met through lighting anyway so no hiding it from them LOL
