Here’s a 500 watt halogen light bulb vaporizing a ping pong ball. The wimpy plastic ball starts melting and then completely vanishes in seconds, leaving behind no evidence that it ever existed in the first place. It’s like the coolest way to dispose of anything. You can see it in slow motion at the end of the video as the plastic just flails away.

I used to call my 500W Halogen floor lamp “The Moth Destroyer”.
Much mean-spirited pleasure was had every time miller moth season rolled around.
...now I doubt that all the bulbs in my entire house add up to 500W.
