None ... its a hardware problem.

One to put their finger in the socket to see if it has power! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

One more to see if the previous idiot blew the breaker! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

One more to bring out a volt meter.

6 more to argue about what the line voltage should be.

One more to say it doesn't matter if it's 110 or 121 volts.

6 engineers to discuss how many lumens at a certain voltage.

One wife to say, honey I can read just fine! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Interesting posts on lightbulbs.I'm a cartoon writer and usually my artist friend draws out my ideas. I've only drawn two cartoons in my life and I used Lightbulb characters to get my joke across. Feel free to check them out at this link:

My artistic talents are limited , henceforth the simple cartoons.For some better drawings by my artist friend Mike, please feel free to check out the rest of the site.Take care, RJ

Doesn't this thread belong on the RSB?? They would probably give an in depth explaination as to why they are superior at changing lightbulbs than any of the other boards.

In my house it only takes one. Of course I'm constantly arguing with myself about it /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

It must not take any.

For years, I've been told that I am in the dark about everthing. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Hi Tom,

That's too funny. Remember that post awhile back and you had to figue out what room light didn't work and you had to flip the switches and go outside and something like that. LMAO I guess we'd have to figure out that stuff first. LOL

Regards,

C.C.
