How many message board readers does it take to change a light bulb?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
552:

One to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed.

Fourteen to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently.

Seven to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

Seven more to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs.

Five to flame the spell checkers.

Three to correct spelling/grammar flames.

Six to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ...

Another six to condemn those six as stupid.

Fifteen to claim experience in the lighting industry and give the correct spelling.

Nineteen to post that this group is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb (or light bulb) forum.

Eleven to defend the posting to the group saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this group.

Thirty six to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty.

Seven to post URLs where one can see examples of different light bulbs.

Four to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL.

Three to post about links they found from the URLs that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group.

Thirteen to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too".

Five to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy.

Four to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

Thirteen to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"

Three to tell a funny story about their chickens and a light bulb.

One group lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

6 to post videos from youtube.com of the appropriate way to change a bulb (<).
17 to argue that the other videos are wrong.
3 to post about this sites search function.
4 to give a link to last years light-bulb (<) changing conversation/arguement. And...
1 to do the actual math and start an arguement that derails the conversation into a completley off topic discussion of math and college which will then go into quantum physics and how ski radius' are different than sidecut all the way back to "maybe light,bulbs (<) should be shaped like skis with 12mm of sidecut to throw light (based on quantum physics) at more of an arc that will parallel each other and light up TWICE as much space without wasting as much energy!!!

I think I have figured it out!!! I'm Einstein Jr.!

ps. Read my signature!

They're all going off-price like now, but there's hardly anything left nor has been since before Christmas.

...yup, I'm still listening - 2 ears, one mouth - I try to listen more than talk...
mmm listening to the sound of skis on snow...
listening to the sound of light bulbs going off all over the world...


...here's a thought...
If a lightbulb blows in a forest, and no one is around, does it go dark?

I just got done reviewing my new videos of parallel circuitry and wiring of all household appliances.

Bulbs to toasters .... PMTS and Harald are the bomb!

Word! End of story. Jus' tossed my PSIA pin, wiring diagrams and commemorative screw driver in the dust bin.
