So my sister's boyfriend is staying with us a few days over spring break.
he's sleeping not too far from my bedroom, and he's asleep right now. so I decided to put a tshirt over the lampshade of my lamp so it wouldn't be so bright. what could happen, right? fifteen minutes later i started to smell something weird and i looked up and saw that shirt was smoking.

That's one less t-shirt..

I'm such an idiot. hahaha

Moral of the story: Use your brain. It actually helps.

It didn't actually ignite. It was smoking though as I said. There are only a couple burn marks on it though.

Nice going. Could've been worse, though - could've burned the whole goddamn house down. Was it a good shirt?

What do your sister or her boyfriend have to do with anything?

Hilarious anecdote by the way. More painful that it was a concert tee.

$30 for a shirt!?!?!

That's too much. I would have recommended turning off the lamp?

If it was too dark, nightlight.

there's just a few brown spots on the back..i guess i can just cover it up with a sharpee.

What do your sister or her boyfriend have to do with anything?

he's sleeping on a couch that is pretty close to my room, so i didn't want to disturb him with having a lot of light on.

i wanted there to be some light

I can't lie. I was hoping the story would end with you over-hearing your sister and her boyfriend having sex. that would've been hilariously awkward.

If he is asleep can he see light?
Shut your door?
Wake him up and ask his positions on light?
Move the lamp?

You have to ask yourself these questions man.
Take this lesson with you into the future.

yeah, the funny thing is it probably wouldn't have bothered him at all. oh well.

Similar thing happened to me, except my light which has an exposed globe was leaning against my pillow. I leave the room for 15 minutes and come in to see it smoking. I quickly take the light off but there were already a few flames coming out. So i went outside and jimped on it alot...

yeah, I was 10.

I once touched the bulb of a 20 watt lamp. Dunno if thats high but it sure left my finger tip feeling rather 'mushed'.
HI GUYS!
#24
I was moving something around in my room, and I knocked my lampshade to the side, so it was crooked...I didn't think much of it until my whole room started smelling like smoke, and I discovered that the bulb had burned a hole in the lampshade...I just left the lampshade off and kept using the lamp.
