A little light relief (humor)

I decided to post this here as it is the most widely read section.
I'll probably be banned though.





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


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 Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs”

1 moderator to monitor the discussion and warn everyone to "lighten up" when the post degenerates into name calling.

2 to complain that all light bulbs are now made in China and they are all junk.

1 to recommend we all stop buying light bulbs on one specific day to show the manufacturers we aren't slaves to their product


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


Thank you Jamie

Pete

Did you buy the bulbs from one of our sponsors?

Do you change the bulbs left or right handed?

Or two handed? (for the Spey fans in the audience)

LOL Pete,

Sounds like a discussion that is going on in another forum I am involved in, & it seems I am guilty of a few of those

Thanks for the laugh
