Are people with brighter porch lights outside at night more likely to be robbed?

I mean, we all know lights do nothing to stop a burglarer.
They can just cut the power source anyway.
But is letting thieves scope out your house at night a good way to keep them away?
Does it let them know that the brighter your lights are, you are more scared, and therefore easy pickings?
What is the average electricity bill for these horribly bright lights anyway?
I leave my lights off at night.....I'm no wuss. I get to help save the enviroment, and I don't look weak.
I got a shotgun in case someone busts in.
Tell me how lights protect people anyway?
I just don't get it.
