    Psarhjinian read my mind. I would only add... We have heard 'bout them whiz-bang LED thingys, and though they may be fine for those commie-lovin' import buyers, we know that a real 'murican is quite happy with the inefficiency and unreliablilty of an incandesant filament bulb. Them folks is only a tiny slice of the market anywho.

    It takes three. One to borrow money to go to the hardware store and get a new one, one to try and convince everybody in the room it's still on, and one to promise to they'll switch to CFLs.

    Hire about 150 bankruptcy lawyers at an average billing rate of about $600 an hour. Have them file motions asking to be discharged from any liability for changing burned-out light bulbs, and explain to the judge in court that all the burned-out bulbs belong to the old company in any event.

    I have no funny or insightful comment to add. Only a tip of the proverbial cap to Farago for the question and the B&B for making the answers so damn entertaining. Mr. Farago, you will be missed.
