How many forum members does it take to change a light bulb?
« on: November 16, 2009, 07:15:39 PM »
This sounds so familiar for some reason. Some of you have probably seen it.
 
SAW THIS ON A WATCH FORUM, BUT THOUGHT IT WAS KINDA FITTING.

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

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 U.R.L.s where one can see examples of different light bulbs,
4 to post that the U.R.L.s were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected U.R.L.s,
3 to post about links they found from the U.R.L.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 Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs", and
1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

On this forum that depends...
- Is the bulb made by Giant?
- Is the bulb going to break soon?
- Is the bulb 26 or 29 or 69 watts?
- Does the bulb turn slow?
- Is there a HD video of it without an shaking on it?
- Do I have to shave my legs to screw the bulb in?

160mm bulb or 180mm?
the 160mm would screw in faster due to less rotational weight.

Does the light bulb have a lifetime replacement warranty if it cracks?

What kind of "Upgrades" can I get for the lamp? Is the lamp a "Hardtail" or "Full-suspension"?
