    You forgot to add one for the fundamentalist who condemns anyone using the word "screwing" as applied to securing the bulb in its socket.

    :D I didn't make up the list I just cut and pasted. But, I would add:

    • 1 old timer to complain about the "noobs" coming in here and making any comment about light bulbs.

    • 3 more old timers to agree with the old timer complaining about the "noobs" coming in here and talking about light bulbs

    :D

    - One fundamentalist to claim that since seeing the light (bulb) a couple of years ago, he's realized it's never changed, has never needed changing, and never will change, and who has thoughtfully encased the lightbulb in an opaque black lampshade just in case anybody questions its wattage.
