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

Postby Scott » Thu Oct 25, 2012 2:36 pm

How many SP members does it take to change a lightbulb? :mrgreen:

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 "lightbulb" 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 URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs

4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's

3 to post about links they found from the URL'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"

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

Shouldn't there be a seperate thread dedicated to removing the old light bulb? And probably links to a couple of trip reports from members detailing their experience with changing light bulbs.

1 to point out that the lightbulb forum would be better with SP version 1.
1 to point out that The Chief is the toughest badass light bulb changer of all of us.

Don't forget:

5 to ask about changing a light bulb with or without a guide service (and which ones were recommended)
2 to complain about rich people with no experience being dragged up the ladder to change the most visible bulbs so they can brag about it at their country club
2 to assert that the FA light changers read by candle light
2 to assert that ratings have creeped to the point where what now is considered a 100w bulb would have been a 50w bulb in 1980
4 to ask about appropriate boot choices when changing a light bulb
3 new members asking other members to critique their gear selection for changing a light bulb
3 to ask about the best training for changing a light bulb
1-2 to answer "Crossfit"
4 to discuss the merits of heart rate monitors when changing a light bulb
3 to post about how improperly discarded light bulbs are a blight on enivronment
