Talk to the lot in the Euro lighting forum.   I know there are posters there who have been to Milton Keynes.

Seriously, if you are still talking about old-school incandescent bulbs, the technology has progressed a lot in the last 5-10 years. Take a look at modern LED's or compact fluorescents (you can get some used models that will last a long time),

(Sigh) of course there will be some old-school types that insist the illumination from incandescent bulbs is warmer and more pleasing.

That depends on how attractive the lamp is.

3 to discuss the conservation of angular momentum involved in the turning of the bulb, and whether there is pumping involved.

 

1 to insist that there is anti-pumping involved in unscrewing the bulb, and that this is the key to expert bulbing.

Some will undoubtably start a thread about the impact of careless light bulb use on the spread of wildfires.

And will leave the light on for you.

Some light humor:


A shaggy dog trots into a bank in Jakarta. He approaches a teller, jumps up to the window, and says: "I need to take out a mortgage. Is there someone here I can speak to about it?"

The teller is very startled, since dogs are not usually seen in banks in Indonesia, and the teller has never encountered a talking dog before. 

"You'd better speak to our branch manager, Mr. Padiwak," the teller stammered. He escorts the dog to the branch manager's desk.

The branch manager soon realizes that this is above his pay grade. He escorts the hound to the corner office, to see the bank president, Mr. Suharto.

"What is it you want this mortgage for?" the bank president asks the hound.

"Well, I would like to develop some real estate. We need a dog park on the beach in one of your remote Indonesian islands."

"Real estate out there isn't very valuable. Do you have anything else for collateral?"

The hound bends back, and with his large and sensitive snout he extracts a gold object from his pannier pack. It is a solid gold, 8" long statuette of Lassie.

To which the bank president exclaims:

"It's a knickknack, Padiwak! Give the dog a loan!"

Incandescent bulbs are warmer and more pleasing and I say that as a new-school type.

Electroluminescent is the most pleasing of all.
