    Actually, this sounds about right. Sadly. Sigh.

    Why is it such much funnier to read on a post like this, rather than an actual post on something you might actually like to read/learn about. One of life's great mysteries!! Thanks for my morning laugh:-)

    It takes a lot to get rid of the newer bulbs. We are farm people and live where you have to take your garbage to the township dump on certain days. I bought one of the expensive bulbs, that would last 7 years, because we had an stair well that was very hard to reach to replace it, you know above cement steps. Well 5 mos. later it was out already, now I`m told our dump doesn`t take them unless they are in an-unbreakable container, and if it would happen to brake in my house I would have to go out side for 15 min. to let the house air out. Not to likely when we had 50 below zero wind chill factor this winter. It scares me. I would not change it at that time, but from the first day when I turned it on the bulb made a cracking noise when it was on, maybe because it was an unheated area?

    HOW MANY MEMBERS 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
    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 "lightbulb" 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
    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 - and that's why you're reading this now
    They forgot 1 admin to "close the thread" because it is causing too much controversy. Lol!

    Very funny. And so true. Which is one very good reason to stay away from forums. They will literally bore you to tears. She said as she posted...oh well.

    Yes, but things here have made me spray my monitor with coffee too! Nothing else makes me laugh so hard. I for one look forward to the laughs, even when they are at ourselves and the funny things that happen.

    Is it a compact flourescent (CFL)? Apparently they contain mercury, which is why disposal is so difficult. I did find this article on recycling flourescents: http://www2.epa.gov/cfl/recycling-an...-cfl-burns-out

    LEDs are much easier to recycle, although they also contain toxic elements:
    http://www.scientificamerican.com/ar...bulb-concerns/

    Also, according to this article, most CFLs are not intended for outdoor use:

    Even light bulbs are complicated these days!
