  •  And a weird one ... (6+ / 0-)

    I got an LED for the landing at the top of the stairs about 4 years ago because the CFL that was there would sometimes set off the smoke/CO detector when I'd flip the switch to turn it on.  

    After a few times of having so many decibels blasted over my head in the pitch black of early morning, I would get scared of turning on the light and flinch every time I flipped the switch.  Dunno if it was some sort of sound wave or electrical thing, but that CFL had to go!!

    The LED was expensive at the time and casts a blue light, but it sure beats getting pounded over the head with loud noises.  ;-)
