What about the 2 page discussion about one company "splashing" another lightbulb design or what mold the bulb was "popped" from?

Riddle me this:

you are down stairs in a house there is a light bulb upstairs and you cannot see it, there are three light switches next to you, if you only get one trip upstairs how do you find out which switch is the one that turns on the light.

Mike: Troutly covered that one with his first post.

But he mis-spelled "arguement".....

Another addition: A stand-up lightbulb dealer in the Gulf states shares his story about how he worked so hard to build his company, but some lowlife snatched the name before he could register it, and then linked it to "Sam's lightbulbs" in a nearby state. (Magicbulb)

. . . . I remember hearing something about a lightbulb (the brightest and best-lighting lightbulb ever conceived) burning out its filament off Marathon. . . . even though it's a 100 watt filament in a 100 watt bulb, it was NEVER intended to withstand the rigors of an 8 x 10 foot room. . . .

You forgot to mention how many OSO members have to have beer (s) to change the lightbulb!

Don't forget the OSHA Minded person who relates a personal story about being horribly maimed (with pictures to prove it) because he once attempted to change a light buld without the proper safety gear.

Man you beaat me to it

then you have Team Baja who jumps in and informs us all about the best light bulb used in the barn for iluminating a sheep pen

and 1 drunken idiot (me) who tells you all that it is not wise to change light bulbs while heavily intoxicated becasue you may get shocked and fall off of the ladder and bust your a$$ causing you to shout several profanities at the light bulb, and also causing your friends to laugh hysterically
