I don't know if this is part of the sliders phenomenon but last night I was able to pull the part of the bottom of a light bulb (unintentionally) so that it separated from the metal part holding the light bulb. So now there are just these dangling wires connecting the bulb to its metal base. Needless to say now it would be difficult to twist the bulb out to replace it. I was attempting to make the light go off by concentration alone & this happened instead.


So, has this ever happened to you?

It can happen, quite easily at that... To get it out cut a potato in half and stick that on the socket firmly. Oh, and please do make sure the power is off to the socket when doing this.

Only rarely...and when it has, the glass has exploded. Needless to say, the only times I can recall this happening are in the rare arguments with my wife. As we're both sliders, apparently it's too much for nearby bulbs sometimes, hehe...
When it does, I usually grab a pair of needle nose pliers (after shutting off the breaker), and get it out of there...(the potato trick never worked well for me....)

I've never tried to concentrate on house lights oddly enough...usually, we blow them often enough just by being around them (as I've mentioned, usually we go through a 4 pack of bulbs a month). Usually they just blow with an audible "tinkling" sound or the occassional "pop".

Did you pull it off the base while trying to unscrew it? This is common sometimes with old bulbs...something I've only experienced at my mother's apartment (as none of my bulbs are old
)

No. I wasn't trying to do that. I was just trying to shut it off normally. I forgot to mention that previous to this experience, I did successfully shut of a lamp light from several feet away. It was exciting hearing the click of the switch. But the light bulb which wasn't very old blew out completely & had to be thrown out.

that happened to me before at my old place. but it was due to my sisters dead husband's spirit. He use to burn out alot light bulbs. There was only one time where the bulb separated from the metal. it happened as we turned on the light. we heard a pop
