    Second of all, who in the hell are you to pose a national/racial/sexual orientation slur?

    I think I am entitled to make that joke, since I am Irish/Scots (oh my god does that make me a halfcast?? oh sorry, is that an a racial slur againt me???), and no not of the i'm irish decendant from 800BC and that makes me entitled to go out drinking every St Patricks day. Where was the sexual/orienatatioin slur???? unless you have some term for lightbulb that i'm not aware of?

    Wait until Octalpuss gets a hold of you...you will not fair well. She's Irish and does not suffer fools well.

    It's a joke, not aimed at Octalpuss, my appologies if she or anyone felt offended.

    Keep it to tech, bucky...

    Bucky? The national drink in scotland for Alcoholics and tramps? are you trying to insinuate i am an alcoholic or homeless? Now thats a slur, Defamation of character if i rememeber my Law correctly. For the record my name is Kibble, can't you read?

    /me begins to peel back the sod...

    Just to get the thread back on topic, I'm going to be the 1 forum member telling you about the next generation lightbulbs :
    Smart light bulb texts you when it dies
    SMS lightbulb

    This is great — now, if you don’t have any friends, at least you can get SMS messages from your lightbulbs.
    Must be inspired by a Psychiatrist. Now his lightbulbs can tell him they really, really want to get changed.

    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.

    check it out man i'm telling the truth

    i saw his one of edison's light bulbs burning brightly in his winter home in FL when i went there on vacation
    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
    The most significant feature of Swan's lamp was that there was little residual oxygen in the vacuum tube to ignite the filament, thus allowing the filament to glow almost white-hot without catching fire.
    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.."
