I Built A Chandelier Today

I didn't mean to build a chandelier today, it certainly wasn't my intention when I woke up this afternoon. But that's what happened. I was at Home Depot looking for floor tiles I could use for another project in my head (they didn't have jack), when I came upon this nifty little twin socket adaptor. It occured to me that while they are merely meant to hold two lightbulbs, they could be daisy-chained together to form a binary tree of dozens. After some quick calculations in my head, I bought 15 adaptors, 16 15-watt bulbs, and took them all home and put them together. It totally worked! However, the results of the massive 16 bulb arrangement were blinding, to the point where I couldn't see my computer screen it was so washed out. So I split the difference, cut it down to 8 bulbs, and now my basement is lit so well it looks like I'm seeing it for the first time.

God, it's a mess.

Is your camera back yet? That pic of the adaptor leaves much to the imagination.

Not yet, but rest assured, there will be pictures to take as soon as it's back in my hands.
