I was working in my office one night at midnight, and I have several CFL’s in addition to many fluorescent lights.
I heard a sizzling sound like bacon, looked in the direction of the sound and watch the CFL burst into flame with flames licking up onto the ceiling of my house.
Next morning I changed out every single CFL with conventional light bulbs.
As I write this memo. I’m looking at the Black flame marks on the porcelain base.
I've had TWO catch fire.
I don't trust them.
Plus they look silly.
