How many forum members does it takes to change a light bulb?

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' started by Rob_SA_Scoot, Jun 4, 2006.

  1. 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
    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.

  2. If you had used the search function you would have seen this joke has been posted before ................................JK :LOL:
  3. Re: How many forum members does it takes to change a light b

    It's a luminaire FFS. :roll:
  4. :shock: the insight into netrider life... its so clear now... :LOL: oh and at work we use the term "luminaire" on our electrical layouts and specifications.... :p
  5. Ah the joys of a self-fulfilling joke... :LOL:

    Oh the desolation of having someone else say something funny that YOU were going to say :cry:

    Nice one peter :grin:
  6. I hate youse all and everyone who has posted this joke before...

    This was just posted on another forii where I lurk and I thought "That's going straight to the (netrider) pool room"... but because I am a fart young smella I thought I had better check if it had been posted before...

    I hate youse all...

  7. Shouldn't this be in "general discussion"?
  8. 1 to tell us it's all a conspiracy and that the use of light bulbs is because of lobiests from the coal industry and how it's all the UNs fault any way.
  9. Squid. 'sif upgrade to a 100W from a 25W bulb, not as if you'll ever use half the light anyway, and most readers can't get anything LIKE the most out of a 60W :roll:
  10. but remember, don't upgrade to a 100W light bulb right away, you might burn yourself or squint too much, try with a 60W first. But then others go straight to a 100w, and just respect the bulb...
  11. Me too!
  12. ...and definitely go with an Osram, because GE and Phillips are just plain shit.

  13. I'm offended! :LOL:
  14. Of course, the bulb has to WANT to change......
  15. Or you could use a candle. Low powered, inefficient, costs twice as much...but it's got an "image" attached to it. :p
  16. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
  17. or get two candles and put them at 45 degrees to each other and get the same benefits, and wax leaking everywhere. :p
  18. :LOL: Funny buggers, the lot of you.

    Oh yeah....

    ...and the inappropriate use of your light bulb will reflect poorly on the rest of us.
  19. :rofl: :rofl: GOLD!! :rofl: :rofl:
  20. The lights on Harleys are just for show, they always break down, make lots of light but it isn't very bright, only enough to get you to the local cafe on a Sunday, and the riders are all so 'my light is the best, so I won't even acknowledge you'... I hate lights on Harleys...
