light bulbs

Discussion in 'Australia Photography' started by Andrew Hennell, Aug 11, 2003.

  1. Sorry, having just had a most relaxing time in Tasmania (Hobart to be
    precise), I thought I'd return by posting something I was recently
    sent, and found very amusing.

    Especially following recent ebay threads, etc.

    I trust (well actually, hope) that this post will not trigger
    something such as below ;o)

    --------------
    How many discussion group posters does it take to change a lightbulb?

    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

    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 anal-retentive

    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 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.
