How many of us does it take to change a light bulb?!

I thought this was too funny not to pass along! The names were changed to protect the.....guilty!


How many of "that other forum's" 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 therefore 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 cat and a
light bulb.

AND

One group lurker to respond to the original post 6
months from now
with something unrelated they found at
snopes.com:blank> and start
it all over again!





I sure glad we are a sensible group....most of the time!

I think for (most) LT'ers the answer is two.

One to call the electrician and one to make the martinis.

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...

Hey, Ron - you forgot the most important one; the one who without their participation, the dayam project wouldn't've gotten off the ground to begin with!!
