[-( If you people would just look at the statistics you would know that almost nobody dies from electrocution when changing a bulb. You are way more likely to die falling from the ladder or getting caught in bad weather and having an accident while trying to rush down the ladder to get away from the arc. [-X

None.

14ers members are all busy either climbing or fighting on 14ers.com

8 people to rescue an abandoned, scratched bulb on the sawtooth.

3 people to yell at ya'll for leaving your broken bulb waste on the summits of 14ers.


FireontheMountain and Nkan02...nice. I'm gonna try and show some restraint on this one. [-(

I haven't read every single post in this thread nor is this right on topic, but your posts remind me of this episode of Drunk History - it's hilarious!

So, I didn't get from this discussion if we are suppose to build a cairn if we have changed the light bulb or if we didn't change the light bulb?
It looks like the ridge is just right up there!
