How many forum members does it take to change a light bulb?

One to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed.

Fourteen to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently.

Seven to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

Seven more to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs.

Five to flame the spell checkers.

Three to correct spelling/grammar flames.

Six to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another six to condemn those six as stupid.

Fifteen to claim experience in the lighting industry and give the correct spelling.

Nineteen to post that this group is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb (or light bulb) forum.

Eleven to defend the posting to the group saying that we all use light bulbs and there fore the posts are relevant to this group.

Thirty six 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

Seven to post URLs where one can see examples of different light bulbs.

Four to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL.

Three to post about links they found from the URLs that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group.

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

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

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

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

Three to tell a funny story about their show dog and a light bulb.

AND



One group lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

I love this forum

You left out the ones that "have seen the light"
and then the ones that will argue:
that the light doesn't exist

Thank you, for posting the correct order for replies to any given post . I have posted to this fourm in the last couple of years with a blatant disregard for the correct sequence of posting. I shall in the future refer to this as the idiots guide to posting. No really! Great Piece. Thank You.

The beatings will continue untill morale improves.

Ever worse would be that special oil that prevents final drive failure.

Touché, Hans.

And yes, I think referring to the posted list as "the idiots guide to posting" is pretty accurate . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Talking

When we change the bulb do we need mineral or synthetic oil in our sump??

What tyre pressure to we run, is it what the manula says, or what the tyres says, or do we belive the old dude up the road who still rides his BSA Bantam to church every sunday?

Do we really use lemon pledge the wash the bike with??

Forget oil in the final drive, you want a drum full of WD-40 cos it says on the can it cleans and protects

If i fill the tyres with helium to about 150 psi does it really decrease the bike weight by as much as 30%???

If i build the home made rocket i found on google from some old 44 gallon drums and mount them to the rear of the bike and illuminate it using Luxeon Leds and ignite it with the spare ballast from my HID install, will this cure the rattle i have hidden deep within the fairing of the beast??If so will it eliminate all rattles or only just a few??

If synthetic oil and mineral oil have such great properties each, then next time i service my bike i will just add 50% of each to my sump and all will be good!

Is it true that by removing one wire from the heated grips, i can make the *ENTIRE* handlebar assembly glow red day or night to make it easier for me to see what im doing when i take my eyes off the road to look at what button im going to press next?


If i change the mounting position of the rear shock so it faces straight upward to the pillion seat is it true i can turn the seat in to an ejector seat like in James Bonds cars and catapult any wrong do'er who decided to ride with me about 50 foot in the air???

If i did any of the above to my bike, would i void my warranty???

What if the place i bought it from installed it for me???

Is the warranty really worth the paper its written on?

mmmmmmm.... yes, its a *SLOW* night for me tonight...
