1 down, 26 to go. You spelled "does" wrong in the thread title.

The first line of the post also has "does" misspelled.

2 down! Or 1 1/2. Whatever.

Also, of the 29 sentences starting with a number, 15 have a period, 1 has a question mark, and 13 have no form of punctuation at the end. :D

No personal by means of picking here for a moment, but is "Horsesense" genuinely a man with a horse's sense, or is he just testing us - on the misspelling that is?

To Horsesense: "You are infact Horsesense ... doesn't make me Birdbrain". :neener:

1 to point out that an internet forum is an unlikely place to get lightbulbs changed due its inconvenient lack of a physical presence.

How about "compare 75 watt to 100 watt?" and then, after this has run its course, "compare 100 watt to 75 watt?"

I went to the lightbulb store yesterday and they had posted no handguns in this department. Light bulbs are not gun friendly so we should boycott all light bulbs.
sent all letters to edisonlamps@light.com

You know, the Nazis were known for their affinity for light bulbs.

"How many Internet Forum Posters (pick a forum... any forum...) does it take to change a light bulb?"

Thats easy. Takes 100 posters to change the bulb. One to hold the bulb and 99 others to drink enough to get the room spinning! Another 100 to sit around and talk about how good the old light bulb was :D

Then there is the whole "What's the minimum lumens to use on Space Alien, Blue-Helmeted, Zombie Bears ??" discussion.


Plus 26,000 "Florescent vs. Incandescent for Home Lighting" threads.

At least 15,000 threads on "Flashlights - How do you Concealed Carry ??" in which every thread will contain at least once, the mandatory post "concealed means concealed".


And the usual gang of suspects will blame President Bush every time a light bulb burns out.

But you ALL forgot that it only takes ONE A-R moderator to look at the thread, decide that the rule as "Posts must be related to firearms." has not really been complied with, to lock the thread!

Fun idea: find out what caliber those teeny-tiny little lightbulbs are (like, the kind in D-cell Maglites, or in the D-cell angle-head military flashlights), and crimp one into a case and show it off. Flashbulb rounds! Illumination! Real tracers! Hehe..

You need at least one poster to claim that W hates light bulbs (and Karl Rove is behind it all).

This is not a light bulb forum, and as such is off topic. Please withdraw your post and post on a dedicated lightbulb forum.

100 lumens is a better darkness stopper than 75 lumens. Remember, 75 lumens might get brighter, but 100 lumens will never dim. :D
