Talking How Many OSO 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

5 to post photos of lightbulbs that they have changed.

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

Plus add one for me who found this on another forum and had to post it here!

Ron

P.S. you forgot about the part where the forum moderator steps in and locks/poofs, the thread because someone made a claim that brand X bulbs are heavy resin buckets, and Brand B bulbs are sold by an A-HOLE, and how this new A-holes bulbs are going to be bigger and better than everyone elses bulbs period

Wait a minute,,, were talking bulbs here right ??

You forgot the one wise guy who will argue that flourescent tubes are superior, and he wouldn't have a light bulb!

What about the energy saving tree hugger who has never even owned a light bulb, but has sworn off light bulbs forever and only uses candle light. Then finds some left wing off the wall web-sites supporting his claim that BIG OIL is in bed with the light bulb manufacturers...

Wait a minute,, were still talking about bulbs right ??
