  • 3 members to start going off on a tangent, so that by the time we reach post 63 the subject has nothing whatsoever to do with lightbulbs...or even changing...and users have to go back to post 1, read the whole thread again, and realise why they clicked on the thread in the first place...

If the lightbulb really wanted to change it would get professional advice and ignore all those people trying to change it. If it didn't, what's wrong with a lightbulb's rights to stay just the way it is, if that's what it wants.

2 to count the 14 days until the bulb blows, as long as its not a lamp.

 

If it is a lamp that will blow in 14 days, that needs 4 to monitor.
