The moment of truth:  
Have any of you ever, EVER, replaced a fuse on a dead string of decorative lights and had that actually work? I think the entire concept is a lie. This probably matters more than it should, when my now-dead string features the cannibalized mini pumpkins and purple bats from two other dead strings that I glue-gunned onto a new one. I'll pull those suckers off and move them again if I have to, but it was a chore. I haven't forgotten the hot glue burns either, let me tell you.

Random entertainment: a list of Asylum's movie monsters.. If you're wondering what Asylum is, it's the company responsible for Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, and Sharknado. Along with many, many others. This was the original WIRED magazine article on Asylum Productions that sucked us into trying out a couple of their movies. :D

We do it every Christmas>_> If it doesn't work, it usually means that either the fuse is not good or there's another light burned out that you don't know about;)

Really?

I may have lost a second light (sadly, the light-tester is in one of the Xmas light boxes, not with my Halloween stuff!).

But I've never gotten the fuse swap to work. And since I can't get the replacement fuse to actually go IN the socket, I probably won't!

Well, good to know it is not a complete lie. :D
