    Default How many forum members does it take to change a light bulb

    From ODP, but oh so applicable:


    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


    1 to move it to the Lighting section


    2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section


    7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs


    5 to flame the spell checkers


    3 to correct spelling/grammar flames


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

    ... another 6 to
    condemn those 6 as stupid


    2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"


    15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb"
    is perfectly correct


    19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this
    discussion to a lightbulb forum


    11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs
    and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum


    36 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


    7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs


    4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's


    3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this
    group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group


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


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


    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 hijack the thread and ask how to change the horn


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

    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Then it it a chisel.

    Is this bulp in the kitchen or the bathroom? What type of ladder did they use to reach the bulp. Very good and typical.

    Given the condition of our planet, and the Eskom issues, I think it's highly irresponsible to be making light of this subject.

    And anyway, we should all be using LEDs.

    Frans.

    Ek was in die bedryf, en weet hoe moeilik dit is.

    The bayonet type is far better, because the screw in type leaks oil and breaks all the time.
