And just what is wrong with an oil lamp????..and then there is the arguement that will be raised by some obsolete old timer that the oil lamp from years ago is still far superior to todays compact flourescent lamp for household use.
I happen to like them for outdoor and porch use.
And I'm not an " obsolete old timer"!
Next time a hurricane hits and your battery powered flourescent lamp dies because batteries can't be found, I'll be there with my old fashoned, obsolete oil lamp.
