When I come home quietly at night, I usually see some unobtrusive neighbors -- several lizards who hang out over my door. I theorize that they've learned that insects have their navigational systems jammed by the lights and crash land on the walls, and jack-lighted bugs taste just as good as bugs hunted down in more sporting ways.

The lizards are weird things which look like they were bred to live in dim caves, with pale uncamouflaged bodies and outsized dark staring eyes. They're never, ever, out in the daytime, and I wonder whether their seeking out the artificial light is learned behavior which overcomes their nocturnal instincts, or what.

So many questions, actually. What are the feng shui implications of night artificial light door lizards?
