Saw this and thought you may find it amusing.

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 "light bulb" is perfectly correct 19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb 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 search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs" 1 to hijack the thread and ask how to change the horn 1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

also...

4 people to try and sell you their light bulbs, then get in a fight about who has the brightest/whitest/longest lasting bulb, dusted with a few choice insults.

1 random Chinese supplier offering low cost PCB's

2 Scientific experts declairing the lightbulb officially dead & superceeded by the LED.

& 2 good arguements about the merits of shoving dead lightbulbs in the ground afterwards & corresponding EU legislation.

.....and it's definitely humour - Dave what are you doing to our beautiful language???

No worries, Rob. It's being suggested that our use of it is only temporary. ;)

Rob,

Here in Riyadh, you'd get your arm sawed off for making statements like that! :)

Hi Samir,

In London at the moment you'd get arrested for a name like that! (sad though it is!)

Have a good weekend,

Rob.
