7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs

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 light bulb 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

5 People to post pics of their own light bulbs

15 People to post "I can't see S$%^!" and use their own light bulbs

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

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"

Also:

Is a 100 watt bulb better than 3 40 watt bulbs?

What about the new sunlight bulbs? Are they really a health hazzard because of the mercury?

A "green" person to comment that the new compact flourescents are cheaper in the long run by using less energy and last longer than incandescent bulbs.

Let me know when the Hitler and Nazi talk starts, so I can come back and lock the thread!

Well, George W. isn't the brightest bulb. And I hate Nazi's, but they did have some cool leather coats in all the old films.
I would also have to add at least 2 people posting about the dangerous gases in those new fangled "lamps", and then a grand debate on the green impact of disposing of them. Then 10 or so complaining about the extra cost.
Myself, I just use my TV as light while I pour some homebrew.
