        Yeah, I got it too. Speaking of lightbulbs, you would not want to see some of the xrays I've seen over the years...

          Yamhills are more suited for the task. They have more cycles per second than an apple.

              the lightbulb edison invented is still burning brightly

              why? the filament hasn't broken yet

              that's the way it was designed. but people wanted to make money off his invention so they started making lightbulbs with filaments that would break, requiring replacement

              so why don't we start making lightbulbs like edison intended and forget about changing them

              that would eliminate a lot of users

                Okay, I'm certainly not an expert, but I call bullshit. Edison worked very hard to find a material that work for a useful amount of time, but I hardly think he discovered a material that would never break. Companies are competing even today to increase burn times, and I'm pretty sure we can file this permanent light bulb in the same warehouse as the water-powered car. It isn't a conspiracy, just plain-old physics.

                    Use of the word "the" here makes it sound as if it was the only one, or perhaps was the first one.

                    The first one that showed significant promise was made of a carbonized cotton thread.

                    Sure, but how long has the bulb been burning? Has it been under-volted?

                    Let's look at other citations:
                    webcam of the longest burning lightbulb (1901) .

                    GE says it is your light fixture that is to blame. (heh heh)

                    The Voltage, Light Output and Life section primarily discusses voltage WRT bulb life, but has this about Oxygen elsewhere in the same page:
                    Originally posted by url above

                    I guess this makes me one of the:
                    "27 to post urls where we can discover the various electric light bulbs..."

                    and you one of the:
                    "12 more to agree that they don't make lght bulbs as they used to be.."

                        Too bad there is a "109" listed...otherwise all the numbers could have been in base 8 (it was posted by OP)-


                        How many Cotmans does it take to change a lightbulb?

                        None. He's not afraid of the dark.

                                How many Defcon Goons does it take to change a light bulb?

                                Only one. He holds onto the light bulb and the world revolves around him.
