How and what we post can become a serious topic here some times, so I hope this joke I found about Forums may lighten the mood. (Mods are welcome to delete it if it is too off topic)

How many forum members does it take to change a light bulb?

1- to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed
14- to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently
7- to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs
1- to move it to the Lighting section
2- to argue then move it to the Electricals section
7- to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs
5- to flame the spell checkers
3- to correct spelling/grammar flames
6- to argue over whether it’s "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid
2- industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"
15- know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct
19- to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum
11- to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum
36- to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty
7- to post URL’s where one can see examples of different light bulbs
4- to post that the URL’s were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL’s
3- to post about links they found from the URL’s that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group
13- to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"
5- to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy
4- to say "didn’t we go through this already a short time ago?"
13- to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"
17 - to say they have the best brand lightbulb and accuse the rest of being fanboys
1- forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

Priceless, esquire E-Alf love those analogies, it causes a flash in our brain synapses and helps us to travel beyond the Twilight Zone in a new dimension of sight and sound.
You are illuminating and brilliant as always. Tip for changing the light bulbs....mechanics use this one alot (there are exceptions sometimes): righty tighty and lefty loosey (how to screw and unscrew your bulbs).

News Flash...this just in........I predict more humor relativity..atleast theorehtically.

I just measured the volume of a GE Soft White, 60W, Incandescent light bulb at 127.82 ml. That is about the same amount I used to leak into my pads daily.
Coincidence?

it is my understanding a fanboy is one who is a fan ( admirer) of something just to be part of the in-crowd ( the cool ones ) - hangers-on ...

David it's okay I didn't know what a Fanboy was, but sort of guessed along the right lines. (And hoped that the responses might explain, which they did.
Perhaps we'd better add:

1 - to ask what a lightbulb is
1 - to explain in bad Engish that they don't have lightbulbs in his country, who then explains how to change a candle.
1 - to query why there are no heavy bulbs.
