Incandescent luminaires are so inefficient. You're supposed to use those fluorescent thingamabobs.

We're NOT Nazi! We are simply enlightened Luminary-aficionados! And it's got nothing to do with cost....it's all about quality!








This is fun!

Yes, we love the fact that those fluorescent thingamabobs don't throw light worth a damn. We love living in the dark.

The OP forgot the 1 member to read the post about changing the light bulb...then come back in 14 days to start a new thread, hoping that he's going to get new friends by acting like he's never read about a light bulb before.

Quote:
Godwin's Law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies)[1] is an adage formulated by Mike Godwin in 1990. The law states:[2][3]

"As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."

Godwin's Law is often cited in online discussions as a deterrent against the use of arguments in the reductio ad Hitlerum form.

The rule does not make any statement whether any particular reference or comparison to Hitler or the Nazis might be appropriate, but only asserts that one arising is increasingly probable. It is precisely because such a comparison or reference may sometimes be appropriate, Godwin has argued[4] that overuse of Nazi and Hitler comparisons should be avoided, because it robs the valid comparisons of their impact. Although in one of its early forms Godwin's Law referred specifically to Usenet newsgroup discussions,[5] the law is now applied to any threaded online discussion: electronic mailing lists, message boards, chat rooms, and more recently blog comment threads and wiki talk pages.



Actually when he called me a seacrh nazi, he invoked it didn't he???
