Energy saving bulbs


Recommended Posts

let me start by saying, "I loves Mrs. Crusher, but this time she's gone too far. She had someone come in my house and replace all my bulbous round sexy old school light bulbs with these ******* energy saving light bulbs. NOW.. Every time i look at a light in my house I feel like someone is pointing a "raygun" at me. These things are all twisted and menancing and really unsettling to look at. I understand they last longer and they save energy, but I don;t care. I was hoping to use up the Earth before the meek got it anyhow.

I use them, and will continue to...but the 20yr thing is BS.

My basement has 16 can lights in the ceiling...and the kids leave them on all the time. With 15W CFLs it's only a 200Watt mistake vs a 1000Watt mistake. But in 9yrs I've probably replaced each bulb 3x. I bet I pay more in bulbs but save it in electricity.

The worst thing for these lights is quick on/off stuff. I still use incandescent in closets for this reason.

I only put CFLs where they'll be on for a long time, like the living room etc. Another great spot is porch/outdoor lights. We accidentally leave them on alot...and now it doesn't cost us much when we screw up.

What the hell is all this technical gibberish about Jerry? Your channeling CTM, I hope you don;t get to the noodle dancing part. I have never been a big light bulb guy, only the one that lights my fridge peeks my interest. OH MY GOD I hope to God this woman didn;t change that one... Hold on... I'll be right back

Eat one of them. Tell Mrs. Crusher you can't help it, they just look so yummy and with her depriving you of glorious fats and sugars you're on edge already and you refuse to give up your new low calorie snacks as long as they are in the house.

Damn you CTM!!!!! You never listen to me. I like the old round ones cause they remind me of meatballs. I didn;t eat a lot of them, but on occasion I did indulge. These ones are scary and not appetizing at all. Thanks for being their dick.

Finally I have someone who understands. Thanx for getting me. Please feel free to personally insult CTM today, you have a pass.

Thanks again

Teh Crusher

You're welcome. One day, if we're lucky, Tesla's ideas will hit the masses in the form of matter. I can't even pretend to imagine the amount of money the average family wastes and will continue to waste on electricity as it's done today.

I actually have a Tesla coil right next to my E.M.P device in the basement. I'm ready for the Rise of the machine's.

I always preferred the Obelisk of Nod to the Tesla Coil.

Ebergy saving bulbs are useless, take ages to give full brightness and no matter what it says on them, aren't anywhere near as bright as the incadescent ones. Naturally enough, those boneheads at the EU have seen fit to ban the older bulbs.

Ok, i think I have it. Calorie's are a measurement of energy, your subconsious is reading "Calorie saving bulb" instead of "Energy saving" and you are recoiling in horror at thsi strange new Diet Bulb

YES!!! this is actually very helpful. Maybe if I can convince Mrs. Crusher to smother the new bulbs in gravy I will no longer be afraid. Thank you bro, nothing but love.

I agree, but couldn't couldn't find an Obelisk Nod. Let me know if you come across one at the annual Mensa garage sale.

Energy saving bulbs are low in calories and suck. Unless they are covered in gravy.
