How Many Forum Members...
...does it take to change a light bulb?


1 TO CHANGE THE LIGHT BULB AND TO POST THAT THE LIGHT BULB HAS BEEN CHANGED.

14 TO SHARE SIMILAR EXPERIENCES OF CHANGING LIGHT BULBS AND HOW THE LIGHT BULB COULD HAVE BEEN CHANGED DIFFERENTLY.

7 TO CAUTION ABOUT THE DANGERS OF CHANGING LIGHT BULBS.

17 PURISTS WHO USE LANTERNS AND ARE OFFENDED BY LIGHT BULB DISCUSSIONS.

6 TO ARGUE OVER WHETHER IT'S 'LIGHTBULB' OR 'LIGHT BULB.'

ANOTHER 6 TO CONDEMN THOSE 6 AS STUPID.

22 TO TELL THOSE 6 TO STOP BEING JERKS.

2 INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS TO INFORM THE GROUP THAT THE PROPER TERM IS 'LAMP', NOT LIGHT BULB

15 KNOW-IT-ALLS WHO CLAIM THEY WERE IN THE INDUSTRY, AND THAT 'LIGHT BULB' IS PERFECTLY CORRECT.

49 TO POST MEMES AND GIFS (SEVERAL ARE OF A GIRAFFE EATING POPCORN).

19 TO POST THAT THIS PAGE IS NOT ABOUT LIGHT BULBS AND TO PLEASE TAKE THIS DISCUSSION TO A LIGHT BULB PAGE.

11 TO DEFEND THE POSTING TO THIS PAGE SAYING THAT WE ALL USE LIGHT BULBS AND THEREFORE THE POSTS ARE RELEVANT HERE.

24 TO DISCUSS THE MERITS OF LED/SWIRLY FLUORESCENT LIGHT BULBS.

44 TO CLAIM LED AND FLUORESCENT BULBS WILL KILL YOU.

12 TO POST F.

8 TO ASK WHAT F MEANS.

36 PEOPLE TO POST PICS OF THEIR OWN LIGHT BULBS.

15 PEOPLE TO POST "I CAN'T SEE S$%!" AND USE THEIR OWN LIGHT BULBS.

6 TO REPORT THE POST OR PM TO AN ADMIN BECAUSE SOMEONE SAID "F÷×$"

4 TO SAY "DIDN'T WE GO THROUGH THIS ALREADY A SHORT TIME AGO?".

13 TO SAY "DO A SEARCH ON LIGHT BULBS BEFORE POSTING QUESTIONS ABOUT LIGHT BULBS."

1 TO BRING POLITICS INTO THE DISCUSSION BY ADDING THAT (INSERT POLITICIAN OF CHOICE) ISN'T THE BRIGHTEST BULB. THIS USUALLY TAKES PLACE WITHIN THE FIRST THREE COMMENTS.

50 MORE TO GET INTO PERSONAL ATTACKS OVER THEIR POLITICAL VIEWS.

5 ADMINS TO BAN THE LIGHT BULB POSTERS WHO TOOK IT ALL TOO SERIOUSLY.

1 LATE ARRIVAL TO COMMENT ON THE ORIGINAL POST 6 MONTHS (OR MORE) LATER AND START IT ALL OVER AGAIN.

14 posts of light bulbs bidding at ridiculous rates at that website.

18 posts of fraudulent "amber" lightbulbs bidding at ridiculous prices, with not-so-subtle hints that we know who is making them.

If you need a Sun Flame Generator Model 100-107 ( for Sunflame lanterns models 105, 106, 107 and 110) give me a PM, I have close to 80 of those, 15 bucks each.

I found an old dual purpose light bulb. It provides light and you can cook over it. Oh crap... it's actually an Easy Bake Oven from the 60's. My sisters had one when we were little . I wish I'd have kept it. (I remember this well as I didn't believe them that it actually got hot and I put my hand on the top "burner" and promptly gave myself 1st and second degree burns all over my palm and fingers.) Doesn't take me long to look at a toy oven/stove!
