    How Many Forum 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

    I saw it on Facebook. It gave me a chuckle, and I thought others would enjoy it here too.

    8 who get into the LED vs Incandescent issue

    10 who argue about wearing gloves for personal protection or for preventing hot spots on the bulb from skin oils.

    6 who offer ways like the potatoes or needle nose pliers for extracting broken bulbs.

    20 who get into the 220 V and 110 volt controversy.

    35 who think their way of treating burns from light bulbs(or shields) are the best

    15 who suggest unplugging the machine first.

    9 who ask how to get the light cover open on their machince without a model name or number.

    So funny. Sometimes it is this way here, but it's dead on in Facebook groups. LOL

    45 to say it’s your lightbulb , change it your way

    21 to say no one will notice from a galloping horse whether your lightbulb is even on

    2 who have no spare lightbulbs; they shop for one fixture at a time

    521 overwhelmed about all the broken pieces of lightbulbs they’ve saved for 30 years to glue together to make 45 new lightbulbs

    Thanks for the giggle! I identify-everytime a light bulb goes out in my sewing room. My guaranteed long life bulbs keep going out! It takes a really tall guy and a ladder to replace them.

    Too funny. The one you missed: I don't know anything about lightbulbs. Sorry I can't help.
