And don’t forget about the lone dog barking in the background too.

Like I said, Moxy


#8

And here I thought the purpose of all of the other threads. regardless of the subject matter, were for blowing off steam, getting off topic, getting on high horses, and other stuff.


#9

Obviously Dave, that is what we all get for thinking…

…no time for bs :open_mouth:

I thought that the incandecent light bulb was banned in many states because it is too energy inefficient. Should’t we change to a more environmentally friendly form of illumination. I wish I could post this in the High Flying thread.

That emoticon is supposed to be a light bulb?- I always thought that one was used to “moon” the reader.

Just last week, the incandescent light bulb was banned altogether in Australia. Not sure about any bans stateside, though. I have a bunch of flourescents in my house. Supposedly, each one saves about $10 per year over its “standard” counterpart. That $10 (from 1 bulb) will buy you a 6-pack of 14W (equivalent to a 60W incandescent) bulbs at Home Depot. They say they’re guaranteed for 7 years, but I don’t know how to collect on that guarantee. Mine have typically burned out after about 4. That’s still better than the old bulbs.

I know those light bulbs, I buy them at IKEA and hate them. Never mind the cost savings, I have lots of kids, how long you think those things really last? Maybe 8 months in a floor lamp. Maybe longer in a ceiling fan. I also hate the light that they put out, it doesn’t bath a room in light. I also don’t like LED lights for the same reason.


#18

Legislation is being introduced in California to ban them here. I have florescent replacements for the 65 watt floods here in the office and love them They put out more lumens than the incandescent at about 16 watts.


#19

Where do you get the LED lights? I remember reading a USA Today article when they first came out with them; aren’t they supposed to be cheaper and more efficient than even the flourescents? I haven’t (to my knowledge anyway) seen them in any stores.
