    How many forum posters 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

    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 light bulb 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

    5 People to post pics of their own light bulbs

    15 People to post "I can't see S$%^!" and their own light bulbs

    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

    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 search on light bulbs before posting questions about
    light bulbs"

    1 to bring politics into the discussion by adding that Julia or Tony aren't
    the brightest bulb.

    4 more to get into personal attacks over their political views.

    1 moderator to lock the light bulb thread.

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

    I always find that if you blanch them in hot water, the skins come off much more easily!

    You also forgot the 20 who will argue that the use of light bulbs is irresponsible and that you should never use them! :D

    and then there's at least one poster who shatters a bulb trying to get it out of the holder because the damn thing got stuck when it was cross threaded when an idiot put it in..

    Just to add to that...

    7 to post that the lightbulbs are way better in France

    6 to complain that there are not enough lightbulbs in the UK and that local councils are not tolerant enough of lightbulb use near beachfronts

    1 psychiatrist to tell everyone that the light bulb has to want to change.

    ;)

    One, warning people not to deal with a dealer called Flog'emand Scarper" as they refused to replace their motorhome when a light bulb failed only bout 68 months after they bought it

    And then some one from "Flog'emand Scarper" signing up for five posts arguing they'd offered a replacement better LED one which was rejected
