    How many message board members does it take to change a lightbulb??

    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"

    1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start
    it all over again

    This reminds me of whenever my engineering friends and i do pretty much anything together. One of us always seems to say "Ok, so how many engineers does it take to...(fill in whatever we are doing)". Its a spoof of those "How many blondes does it take to...), you know, one of those. Anyway, it was pretty funny the first 5,000 times. I dont think we ever changed a lightbulb though. There was one really funny one, but i dont remeber it since its finals week and i pushed everythnig else out of my brain except the stuff (some of it, anyway) i need to know for tomorrow. damn, not remembering this is going to bug me.

    Awesome! Only you forgot about the guy who claims that the original poster has never even owned a lightbulb, demanding to see pictures and wattage numbers.
