Nocturnal Suction Cups?

In my experience, suction cups seem to have a high probability of popping
off the wall in the middle of the night and landing with a huge crash. (It
just happened here at 4am). Is there any statistical literature documenting
this? Chances are, you attach a suction cup during the day, when the
temperature is higher. Then the lower temperatures at night causes the
rubber to contract and pop off, hmm....
