Ok.... So I have been working in lighting for quite a while. The stuff I know now I never would have dreamt of knowing before. The only big still left on my list right now is learning the colorwheel in lighting.

I know that I am know electrical engineer, although I have picked up little bits here and there.... but on thing that I have yet to understand is why lamps almost always blow when they are turned on, and how you can get a really bright flash from one even if it is barly on...
