How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb? Answer: 422. 1 to change the lightbulb and post it to the board that the bulb has been changed. 14 to respond and share similar experiences. 7 to caution about the dangers of changing lightbulbs. 27 to point out spelling errors and grammatical errors in postings about changing lightbulbs. 53 to flame the spell-checkers. 156 to write to the administrator to complain about the lightbulb discussion and its inappropriateness to the board. 111 to defend the relevance of the lightbulb discussion. 27 to post website addresses where one can see different examples of lightbulbs. 14 to complain that the website addresses are incorrect and post correct ones. 12 to "leave the board forever" because they can't handle the lightbulb controversy.

Hannah, surely there should be at least some discussion and general disagreement over what constitutes a light bulb, should a light bulb be changed (is this just another form of cloning ?) and the religious implications. [smoke]

That's it, I'm out of here for good. I can deal with racial discussions, religious discussions, but you people have finally done it. What went so wrong around here? At what fork in the road did AR15.com head straight to hell? This lightbulb stuff is WAY out of line. I'm leaving this site and NEVER coming back. It's gonna just be me and StyerAug from now on. We don't need the internet anyway. We can just call eachother on the phone when we have absolutely nothing worthwhile to say. Got it? I'm gone.

Actually you should be using replacement ultra long life florescent bulbs so you never have to change a lightbulb again.

How many psychiatrists to change a light bulb? Only one, but it takes a long time, and the light bulb has to want to change. Oh wait, I have a longer version of that too: How many internet mail list subscribers does it take to change a light bulb? A: 1,343 1 to change the light bulb and to post to the mail list 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; 27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs; 53 to flame the spell checkers; 41 to correct spelling/grammar flames; 6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb"; another 6 to condemn those 6 as anal-retentive; 156 to write to the list administrator about the light bulb discussion and its inappropriateness to this mail list; 109 to post that this list is not about light bulbs and to please take this email exchange to litebulb-l; 203 to demand that cross posting to grammar-l, spelling-l and illuminate-l about changing light bulbs be stopped; 111 to defend the posting to this list saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts *are* relevant to this mail list; 306 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; 27 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs; 14 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and to post the corrected URL's; 3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this list which makes light bulbs relevant to this list; 33 to link all posts to date, then quote them including all headers and footers and then add "Me too"; 12 to post to the list that they are unsubscribing because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy; 19 to quote the "Me too's" to say "Me three"; 4 to suggest that posters request the light bulb FAQ; 44 to ask what is "FAQ"; 4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago on Usenet?" 43 to ask "what's Usenet?" ************ And don't forget about the 38 people to say "don't buy light bulbs at store X because they thought about donating money to the Brady Bunch 20 years ago"

This is for all you light bulb enthusiast loosers[:)]. Fluorescent is the correct spelling. NOT florescent[stick]. You do have to change lamps in fluorescent fixtures eventually, ballasts too. The socket you put a lamp (aka- light bulb) in is called a screw shell[sex]. P.S. The good thing of fluorescent fixtures is not only the lower wattage. You screw the power company out of more money, through inductive reactance of the transformer in the ballast. [}:D]

For those of you familiar with complex power...... The power company charges on power (Watts)/time (P/t) or "true power", that is simply: P = (I^2)R, VI, or (V^2)/R where: [i]* ^2 = squared[/i] Since in the US, power is supplied via a 60Hz sinusoid and the ballast load is inductive, it has a reactive impedance "Z" which is dependant on the frequency (60Hz). Now enters the complex J component in the load which the power company ignores in the power math. This is the apparent power; "S" The units are; VA or Volts-Amperes. Just substitue the the impedance "Z" for the real resistance "R" in the above power equations. There is also VAR reactive power......... [:D]

Everybody knows chrome-lined lightbulbs are better. Is is [i]really[/i] a mil-spec lightbulb? Does it have a .223 or 5.56 socket? Screwing one onto the other could make the bulb blow up. How do I make it turn on full-auto? Just for educational purposes, of course.
