Changing light bulbs


How many Fireblade owners does it take to change a lightbulb?


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 point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs

5 to flame the spell checker

3 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

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

Origin of the above is unknown.

Regards...

Re: Changing a light bulb.

Bah! You forgot:

13 to post off-topic posts, resulting in 75% of the bulk of the thread having absolutely nothing to do with the lightbulbs (or light bulbs) (or lemps) (or lamps)...
