I don't understand. What am I doing wrong? I tried it but instead of lighting the bulb, the bulb sucked all the light from the room.

A wee bit late for an April fools' day prank, isn't it?

Clearly, you must have figured it all out. Does it make wormholes too?

I think it makes black holes if it is run too long.
