    tee hee hee... but how could you forget:

    4 to point out that Sasha's extension is so incredible that no one could ever change a light bulb the way she does.

    50 to respond that Michelle changes light bulbs from her heart...

    15 of whom will also point out that Sasha has never changed a light bulb when it mattered without dropping one.

    You forgot-

    2 to bash Thomas Edison for not inventing a longer lasting lightbulb.

    3 to imply an Edison conspiracy to sucker the public out of the money for replacement bulbs.

    30 to defend Edison as a great inventor and noble American.

    (I must be spending to much time on the boards.)

    Also:

    3 to insist that this entire subject would be moot if the last two award-winning lightbulb changers had remained in the field rather than switching over to plumbing. Six to argue back that it's not the plumbers' fault--they simply had to follow their hearts--plus, they were just so sick and tired of changing lightbulbs day in and day out.
    :D

    1 to point out that edisons ideas are outdated and that we use alternating current now, which was invented by Westinghouse, who gets no credit at all.

    5 to say that they are Westinghouse fans and that he shouldnt be given the short end of the stick ever again.

    2 to point out that Westinghouse's improvments wouldnt have been possible without Edison.

    LOL....wonderful!

    How about:

    10 people to say that the light bulb purchased in Ukraine doesn't belong in the center of the 3-bulb vanity fixture of your vacation chalet in Lillehammer....the American bulb with the Vera Wang filament looks much better there.

    How about...

    7 to claim that light bulbs are overrated, and that candle light is much softer, more dramatic and more eco friendly and obviously what we all should be still using.

    5 to wax nastalgicly about the good old days when treaties were signed by candle light

    4 to point out how many career ending injuries are the result of light bulb use and the public's frenzy for it.

    That is my favorite one.

    When I first started posting, I don't know if this has happened to you but here is one that gets to me. Being the last poster on a thread. I always think --- what did I do wrong, my opinions count, why are they not responding, they don't like me
