    How many forum poster to change a light bulb.

    Came across the following, seems to fit the bill nicely-

    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.

    you forgot which size lightbulb is superior...and the associated technique of changing said size bulb.

    30W, 60W and 100W

    that, and if you should change the lightbulb stoned...

    Wait a minute... I thought "light bulbs" were banned now-a-days. Aren't we all suppose use CFL's (compact fluorescent) now? Those are easy and require minimal effort to maintain. Install once and forget about them.

    No, no! CFL bulbs contain Mercury and are only made in China. LED is where it's at.

    After the 13 that say to do a search, there are 6 who say that the search function is broken and besides, light bulb technology changes so fast these days that it's good to revisit this topic periodically.

    Also missing is the debate about whether Bush or Obama is to blame for the burned out bulb.
    Speed solves all problems, except for those things it makes worse.

    The bulb burned out because it was a cheap Walmart piece of crap.

    Hey, as long as they're out there getting some light, we shouldn't judge them just because they can only afford WalMart bulbs.

    "19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take
    this discussion to a light bulb forum"

    No... it takes one mod to move it to the 'light bulb forum'.
    (Seems like an appropriate moniker for the OC)

    It won't take that many.

    Most posters here would rather stay in the dark.

    34 posters providing minimal information about their needs and asking which lamp to buy.
    Live like there's no tomorrow. But pay your bills just in case there is.

    Today atg work it took 2 people to change one bulb. I watched and the other guy actually changed the bulb. Along the way I suggested that maybe we should be at least 4 for that job.
    Rule #9 // If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.
