There is a Lamp-Post outside my apartment window that is struggling with itself.
When on, the Lamp-Post bathes the surrounding area with a bright amber light. However, this lamp is showing signs of an early demise. Every five to seven minutes, the lamp will switch from on, to "almost-off-but-struggling-to-keep-lit", and back again. It refuses to decide on a state.
Personally, I'd much prefer off. When it is off, my bedroom is a much more aesthetically pleasing room in which to sleep. Plus, I don't have to deal with the constant flashing through my window - an annoying, slow beacon of lamp-death.
I'm almost tempted to fire a projectile weapon and make the final decision myself.
