Light bulb problem
 
I can't seem to keep a light bulb working in my kitchen. They burn out insanely fast, including two in the span of about 30 minutes tonight.

Now, these were the cheap old school bulbs, so I'll try the new kind. I'm just wondering if it could be an issue with the wiring in our place. (I'm a renter)

Or it could be a haunting. It's that time of year and all...

Probably sand in your wires.

The reason I'm concerned about this, is that I have had a bit of a history with fires. (ahem)

Not at the moment. I have one bulb left though.

I would say high voltage. Since your renting, bring it up to your landlord. Show him your dilemma.

Have you tried Florescent?

Yeah, that's what I'll try next. It's just weird. I've burnt 4 bulbs out in a week (all in the kitchen). The last two within minutes of one another.

Were they all from the same box?

3 were. The 1st to go out had been fine for a long time.

Good point, now that I think about it.

Do bulbs get "old"? I mean what would get old in a light bulb?
