    Default EbonyIckoFecestius

    I spent the day replacing burned out bulbs in the display, and I noticed something really strange with the bulbs that are on the edge of the roof. There is a black, grainy substance in the electrical connections and on the wiring. The icicles hanging down from the edge had the substance inside the sockets and the C9s pointing up from the roof deck had the matter inside them too. The snow we had did collect there and I would almost say that the matter was organic in nature like mold but the substance also resembled soot or granules from the asphalt shingles. The substance was rather weird looking, and it was inside the sockets causing problems with the electrical connections.

    It doesn't make sense but since it looks unknown I get to name it. That is what the scientific community does when something new is discovered. I hearby name the substance Ebonyickofecesitus or Black, Icky Crap as it will be commonly known. It really messed up my electrical connections.
