Rosey recently got me a replacement bulb for the halogen floor lamp in my room. This is a 300W bulb, you know, the kind that dorm students will use to cook puff-pastries.
Our kitchen and bathroom windows are without screens, and always open (to cool the place down), and we get very large moth-like things (they're actually much heavier in the body than moths, but they have similar-looking wings).
Since my light is the only one that's on for most of the night, the moth-like things dive-bomb it.
That would normally just be annoying, but the light is so hot that they tend to dive bomb it and die, landing down in the reflector where it's extremely hot. A few minutes later, my entire room is filled with a sickening stench and I have to go fish the thing out before it smells up the whole apartment.
