How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb?

1 to change the light bulb and 1 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

27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts 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 email the participant's ISPs complaining that they are in violation
of their "acceptable use policy"

109 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this
discussion to a lightbulb forum

203 to demand that cross posting to hardware forum, off-topic forum, and
lightbulb forum about changing light bulbs be stopped

111 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs
and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum

306 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

27 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs

14 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

33 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all
headers and signatures, and add "Me too"

12 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot
handle the light bulb controversy

19 to quote the "Me too's" to say "Me three"

4 to suggest that posters request the light bulb FAQ

44 to ask what is a "FAQ"

4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

143 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about
light bulbs"

1 new forum member to respond to the original post 6 months from now and
start it all over again

Laughed so hard when I read this

Tried to change a lightbulb in my bedroom a few weeks ago. Ended up breaking the bit that holds the bulb, but dad didn't belive it was brocken and thought he'd be able to fix it (all mum said was "Men!  : " -  ), then he broke it more. When paint started falling off the ceiling he realised it was broken,  and had to turn off all the electrics in the house so we could cut the wires, then we had to buy a new holder thing and attach it to the wires then buy a new lampshade, then found out we didn't have any bulbs, and it was a Sunday so all the shops closed early.  :

Next day bought a bulb, but can't screw it in properly, so it's just kindof hanging there.  :-\ Kind of dangerous realy but never mind.

All that trouble to change a lightbulb. Took 2 days!!

Yes, tell us was it hard? Did you insert it the wrong way? Did you break something? Did you drop the bulb?

If this happens to you 6 or more times out of 10 you are a butterfingers so put your fingers on toast, pancakes, waffles, and pickles.

If you put butter on pickles 9 of 10 people say you have odd eating habits.

If you are that 1 of 10 who don't you also have odd eating habits.

We're always here for you Sorry about the broken bulb. If you had told us you planned this difficult procedure one of us could have been there to catch that slippery light bulb when you dropped it

You did all four! You Are A Butterfingers! Put pillows under the light so if it falls it hits the pillows.

Don't put your butter on toast, pancakes, waffles, or pickles. ESPECIALLY PICKLES.(unless you're eating them)
