IO: don't try this at home kids

Thought it would be a good idea to dry a still damp pair of underwear by placing it over my lamp. Thought I made sure it wasn't touching the 100W bulb.

That is, until I smell smoke and realize I charred it! Now one of my favorite pairs is ruined and there are melted remains permanently stuck to the light bulb.

I'm a !!!!!!!!!!!!

I did that to my socks during the wintertime when my feet were cold all the time ... one of them got burned in the end, but the other was nice and toasty

I switched to flourescent bulbs, and they don't really generate heat...

That is so something I'd do. Infact, once I warped a light shade on a lamp because the globe was too bright so I stuck a book over the top to dim it. I checked on the book a while later and decided to take it off as it was heating up, but I noticed the heat from the lamp couldn't escape and thus is warped the shade.

LMFAO

you´re not alone. Stuff like that happens to me as well. One time I nearly burned my entire flat because I put on a candle.. in order to protect the carpet, I put it on a paper and thought the flame would finish by itself eventually. then I went to sleep

It didn´t, needless to say.. next morning there was smoke and a big hole in the carpet.

"What's that smell? Is something burning?"

"Don't worry, it's just my underwear."

I am glad to see I am not the only one who has ever done something like this.
