A 555 connected to mains power is likely to only "blink" once.
Yes, but the LED(s) connected to it aren't likely to blonk at all.
But if you put 240v AC through a 12v transistor it glows like an LED
for a short time. Where short ~= 2s.
And then the metal cap of the transistor bounces off the ceiling.
