So two nights before Easter, I noticed that the light was on in the neighbours place directly opposite my bedroom and up a level in the next block of flats. It was on all night. It kept me awake because every time I looked out the window the light was on. Something was wrong.

At first I thought that perhaps the flat was up for sale or lease, and someone had left the light on while showing people around. It stressed me that the light was going to be on all Easter weekend using up electricity. Saturday I looked up on Domain to see if it was for sale or lease. No sign of it.

Then I thought that perhaps the owners were on holidays and had left the light on and gone away. But it's now been two and a half weeks. And school holidays have only just started.

So then I started thinking bad things. Like perhaps someone died in there and noone has noticed yet. Presumably the neighbours would have noticed the smell in the stairwells by now, so it's probably not that. But certainly a possibility. Was wondering if I should try and get into the building and have a look.

So anyway. What can you do hey.

perhaps you ask the cops to investigate ..... it takes quite a while for the smell to get really bad and noticable if someone has died .... but they may have collapsed? I have seen places left for months and months .. sometimes years before anyone knows that someone has died ... what a world huh!

I think you should investigate, and if the place is abandoned, advertise and rent it out.

Or you could rent a wrecking ball and demolish the building. That would certainly keep the light from bothering you! :-)

anyone got a sniper rifle? I could just shoot the light out .. actually I couldn't, it's a lamp that's below the window level. Oh well :)

It is a hydroponic light to keep the marijuana warm. Don't worry about it. :)
