How many Ranger fans does it take to change a light bulb

How many Ranger poeple does it take to change a light bulb?


*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

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 "light bulb" is perfectly correct

19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a light bulb 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

5 People to post pics of their own light bulbs

15 People to post "I can't see S$%^!" and their own light bulbs

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

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 search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"

1 to bring politics into the discussion by adding that George W. isn't the brightest bulb.

4 more to get into personal attacks over their political views.

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

Mine are better. They more efficient, displace more lumens of light, and consume less wattage.

These are also not light bulbs. Since the lamp is in the shape of a twisted tube and not a "bulb", the proper term is fluorescent lamp.

Flourescents are dangerous! My father's son's inlaw's cousin's friend's hairdresser killed someone after they ran up a $30 bar tab and bragged that their LED's were better than his flourescents! He shoved a box of LED 194's down the guys throat and killed him!

I think it's the mercury vapor that did it...

Who drinks at a bar while handling light bulbs? Isn't that a federal offense?

Only in "Blue" states... (dang liberals can't even stay out of a man's choice of lighting...)

It's getting so a man can't go out to a bar and get lit...
