    I have unscrewed many light bulbs in my life. Most of the time, the light goes off. You find a replacement. Then you unscrew the old and screw in the new. Every once in a while the bulb will not easily unscrew. Sometimes, I have had to break the glass and used a needle nose pillars to unscrew it.

    Not with the new light bulb, it has great danger. The EPA says to be very careful with these things. In a year or three, a bulb may go out and not want to come out.

    Yipes!

    Well then be careful ya stupid fuck. Get with the program.

    We demand convenience, efficiency, and economy yet want nothing to do with responsibility.

    And given the opportunity we'll skirt a system, bypass protocol, bend rules, flat out lie and cheat.

    Own up and pony up.

    If I could speak for Mr. HJMICK (but I don't), I'd suggest that he's referring to:

    Shining a light on fluorescent bulbs - US news - Environment - msnbc.com

    Important to know that you shouldn't be filling the wastestream with these ohsogreen items..

    The only ones "demanding" the "convenience and efficiency" of these mercury bulbs (let's call them what they really are) are environmentalist wacko moonbats like you, which is a little ironic in itself.....

    CFC's are a stopgap. LEDs will be here shortly.

    Then what was the basis for beginning the ban of incandescents ALREADY? Or setting a standard that is ALREADY obsolete? Was this the "hope and change fairy" deciding lighting policy?
