101 members

1 to change it, and 100 to argue about how many lightbulbs there actually are.

Fixed that for you.

Jeez dude, learn what a leitmotif is! :mrgreen:

1 to write a detailed report that makes changing that light bulb in the bathroom sound like the most epic event in the history of mankind, coming in at 14 written pages and with 147 high-res photos inline that are too large to fit on your screen.

Can some/all of these members swing by my house? I've got at least 4 lightbulbs/light bulbs/lamps burned out right now.

12 to post cartoons and music videos vaguely about lightbulb changing
1 to state that stepladders are making lightbulb changing too easy for beginners
7 to respond to the above with "+1"
3 to point out that stepladders improve lightbulb-changing safety
1 to claim that the real danger is electrocution, not falls
129 to give opinions on which beer goes best with which lightbulb
1 to start 17 threads criticizing an incumbent politician's policies

I'm new to changing lightbulbs, but I love it.
I'll be coming from sea level and spending a week changing light bulbs. How does my acclimatization plan look? Should I use a step ladder for a day in Denver before trying a bigger ladder in Leadville? How about diamox?

Also, I'd like to rappel down the face of the ladder after changing the bulb. I haven't rappelled before, but think it'd be an epic adventure. Can you give me some info on how to rappel down the Diamond Bulb Face?

:idea:

1 person to put on a costume and high heels while changing lightbulbs
1 person to photograph the person changing lightbulbs
4 people to whine about it later and claim they are changing lightbulbs for more legitimate reasons and say that changing lightbulbs is a serious activity that should not include any lightbulb-changing shenanigans

5 to point out you shouldn’t trust a step ladder left behind by someone else. 3 to declare the step ladder shouldn’t have been left there. 2 who will state they’ll clean the route of all step ladders. 4 who will admit they’ll use the step ladder if it’s there. 2 who will say they’ll pack their own step ladder and take it with them when they’re done. And at least a few that will proclaim if you need a step ladder you have no business changing a light bulb!

Is that the requirement for a "ranked" lightbulb? If so, what is a "soft ranked" lightbulb?
