...to change a light bulb?



>1 to change the light bulb and 1 to post a topic 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

>27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in sentences about changing light bulbs

>53 to flame the spell checkers

>41 to correct spelling/grammar flames

>6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as anal-retentive

>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

>156 to complain to moderators that some members are in violation of message board rules

>109 to post that this message board is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a light bulb message board

>1 person who just joined the message board to respond to an old post and start it all over again



biggrin



Edit: I just realized this was posted back in August last year by someone else, but hey, it's worth reading again. smile

Maybe we should add:

>1 person to unknowingly post exactly the same thing as someone else did a while back, and 14 people to direct that person to the original post

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

How True!!



And of course,

15 to talk about the different techniques/equipment they use whilst changing their light bulb and the sort of attachments they use including screw end or stubby

12 to say how long it took them to learn the move in the first place



And



1 who has a new name for it as they do it under the leg BTB with a turn

499 people to gather in a field and celebrate the changiing of the lightbulb with a festival. And 15 people to teach others the joy of changing lightbulbs.

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.
