FML - The follow-up
iplaytwister Say more :
OP here. Technically this happened almost a year ago, and I wrote the FML from my new(er) laptop, which is a mac. It WAS true, and the desk light was a regular desk light, I had it like 8 inches from the screen (Toshiba laptop), and it melted the plastic all around the corner of my screen and onto my screen. When I rescued it, I could see into the cords and everything inside. so yea.

Errrm what crappy laptop do you have? I don't know of any that would have a plastic screen, and seeing as the internal components of a laptop can get very hot if you are doing something that requires a lot of power, I doubt you would have a lamp that can get your laptop hotter than that and melt it.

Considering a normal incandecent light bulb loses 90 percent of its energy to heat, I am not surprised this happened. OP you need a proper computer lamp that uses led's. They only lose up to 20 percent of their energy to heat. Most laptops use lcd screens and majority of them are covered in a plastic film.

Wellll most monitor screens are plastic, in case you don't know, the screen sits above the computer components, and they definitely don't get hot enough to melt plastic, if they were built properly

Probaby because older computers are more durable, and no one really cares when they brake so no one bothers with a FML. But yeah, I'm gonna have to say this is fake for several reasons... 1) Why would the lamp be shining directly one your screen? 2) How the fuck would it produce that much heat even if it was shining directly on the screen without touching it?
