    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 George W. isn’t the brightest bulb.

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

    1 moderator to lock the light bulb thread.

  5. i enjoy this on multiple levels as:
    1. people often ask people on netrider if females that they know are hot or not.

    2. light bulbs produce heat
  6. 7 people to post how the police are responsible for the light bulb blowing in the first place.
  7. *edit*

    Bugger - Already said ...

    Carry on...

  8. It's amazing that the bulb got changed at all after all the indecision over who was going to lead the operation and who was gonna go TEC
  9. In amongst all that, Did the light bulb actually get changed.
  10. No, which hand did you use to put the light bulb type questions?

  13. If my 'nod' button was working I'd give you a 'nod'. As it is you'll just have to settle for a 'nod' so here it comes :

  14. There is a nodder in every thread :p
  15. - At least a couple to discuss appropriate safety gear for changing the light bulb..
    - A couple to say that anybody who changes a light bulb themselves these days is a reckless idiot, gear or not.
    - A few to question whether the speed of light is an appropriate limit (if light were travelling at 1079252842km/h instead of 1079252850km/h, the bulb may not have blown in the first place).
    - 3 or 4 to take the thread OT and start talking about boobs.

    ... etc..
