Are you guys familiar with the halogen torchierc lamps? The ones with the exposed halogen element putting out a good 400 deg. I've seen these in floor lamp models, with the shade in the up position, and element pointing up, as well as a cieling mounted variety.

The flr lamp variey is great for igniting jr's paper airplanes, or whatever rover tips it over on, the cieling variety i have seen literally cook conductors via heat transfer to a golden crispy brown.

Torchierc...they named it right....
