  3. I need a garage.

    No wonder when I put the bread on the stove under the cfl (on 24/7) it never got moldy.

  8. 100 watt heat producing globes are still lawful.

    Shame about all the extra light they produce.

  10. I could so make a lot of money out of this. I can’t tell you how. I would have to become a felon first, and then if I told ya’ll about it, ya’ll would become felons for not turning me in.

    I think it’s called “Misprison of a Felony” in several states, so I’m not going to tell ya’ll about it.

  12. Alan, when my summat Liberal d-i-l (love her dearly!) asks about my gun/ammo stash, I reply that I’ve got enough to last the rest of my life or the end of the Øbama administration, whichever comes first.

  13. Wonder what would happen if pissed off voters got their MERCURY FILLED CFL BULBS and threw them on the steps of the government offices in protest.?

    I mean thousands of people did this. Tens of thousands.. hundreds of thousands!

    Yes a huge HAZMAT problem but still, isn’t free speech protected?

  16. Does anyone know whether those Germans who contracted-out manufactured bulbs [to their own specs, remarkably similar to patent-free incandescent light bulbs] for sale as heating elements?

    And there are still 100W incandescents being made. As industrial lights, with much thicker glass and [white-hot] wire, and costing as much as equivalent CFL…

  17. I use puppets and crayons to communicate with my co-workers, who are mostly zombies and Obamunists.

  18. What about infra red heat lamps?

    My chickens need to keep warm until they all die of mercury poisoning.

    And I think we have a lot of politicians who need a Kenworth injection.

    We had a gal at work who was treated with a Peterbilt.

  20. There is so much about this issue that is a crock. First of all, I don’t believe mercury is the environmental risk it’s being hyped to be. And sure, the lights must produce UV to operate, just like every other fluorescent lamp in history. Again, nothing to see here. Move along…

    Of course, the incandescents are not the environmental risk they’re being hyped to be. I use the CFLs because they produce more light and less heat, so they’re cheaper to operate. But I’m switching to LEDs as they’re now become more affordable and brighter. They are more reliable, have longer life, reach full brilliance instantly, and they have a better color spectrum.

    Stupid, stupid government, trying to compensate for our stupidity, ‘cept we’re not stupid.

  21. I’m pretty sure the bulb in my sister’s old Play-N-Bake oven still works.

  22. ^^^^^ There will be code words, and even possibly puppets. I can’t promise the puppets.
