What kind of freaky, incandescent (non-power-saving) light bulb lasts for 3+ years (it was there when we moved in), and then suddenly explodes?
Seriously. There was a pop and a flash in the kitchen, and when we went to check, we found the lightbulb hanging by a single wire from the outlet (and from the base of the bulb!), with the cheap plastic shade still attached to the lightbulb. We shut off the switch, and then when Chris tried to take off the shade, the whole thing (shade and lightbulb) exploded in his hands! Plastic and glass everywhere!
(Chris is okay! But we're even going to have to replace the outlet!)
