hey, i just changed a lightbulb... man it was so awesome. i like, turned it, and it came out... i burned my fingers at first though, cause it was still hot from being turned on. Also, it was very hard, because once the light was out, i couldn't see any more because it was dark. i also dropped the dead light bulb and broke it on the floor, but i didn't really worry, since i couldn't see where the glass shards were anyway. then i forgot to turn off the switch, so when the bulb was screwed in a little, it nearly blinded me. But, the bulb was changed! woooot

I think you're lying! Either you changed a perfectly healthy light bulb, which was idiotic, or you didn't burn your fingers! You can't have it both ways.

I'll take your failure to respond as confirmation that I'm right!

It takes zero members to change a lightbulb. Random quantum fluctuations will deal with it eventually.

That was my answer:

None: Both CRTs and flatscreens are self-illuminating.

(I'm one of the "me too"s.)

Me three. :biggrin: :tongue2:

But obviously, the correct term here is "bright thingy". All of you who say "light bulb" are wrong.

In the beginning Greg created PF and the lounge.
And the lounge was without form, and void;
and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And the Spirit of Greg moved upon the face of the waters.
And Greg screwed in a lightbulb and there was light.

Hence, any attempt to change a light bulb will be against the will of Greg. Changing light bulb comes under religious activity, which is against the PF rules and not allowed.

And if you try to change a light bulb, Greg will send you to a special place outside PF, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer and burn and scream until the end of time. But Greg loves you.

That "Buwahahaha" requires some explanation.

Greg might seem as if he's leading some cult, what with this Sisterhood and such, but the truth is a little scarier, as is revealed by this dialogue from the Member Photo Thread:

Hello Greg, I'm wondering who must look at your attachments above then make a call on whether or not they should be allowed for general viewing?

I don't understand :confused:

Sorry about the confusion but I noticed initially the images you attached were pending approval. I thought Evo alone may have had the power to approve, which caused me to snicker considering your position.

The truth has been let out. Yes, evo has a special leash around me! :tongue2:

You forgot to remind people to donate to the church of physicsforums.com.

That's not true. If you were using the light when it burned out and you changed it right away with a light bulb from the closet where you keep new light bulbs, it could still be hot.
Not every one procrastinates :tongue2:

He'll send you to Sunday chat?

Peng is right, this was posted: May14-04, 01:57 AM I am surprised it still is around because some of the members who posted have long since vanished.

They didn't just vanish. Greg sent them to a special place outside PF.

* 1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

This is incorrect. It's happened several times since 2004.

I think that everyone should use green lighting technology.
