    I've now changed the light bulb.

          I had a similar experience changing a lightbulb (it's really ONE word, you know) that I thought I'd share.

          See, it was back in ought-two, I was sittin' back, minding my own business, when I decided it was time to go to the kitchen and get me a sandwich. So I got up from my chair and walked over to the kitchen, casually flicking the light switch as I entered. Pop! A bright blue flash of light, and then darkness. I stood there for a second in the unexpected darkness as my brain pieced together what had just happened. The thought occurred to me: I bet the lightbulb needs changin'.

          Now, I've changed a few lightbulbs in my time, but I tell you, nothing adds to the challenge of changing a lightbulb like having the socket just out of your reach. You may know what I'm talking about -- it isn't high enough to warrant the use of a ladder or step-stool, but it isn't low enough to be changed comfortably. I'm a tall fellow myself, but darn it if all my ceilings aren't well over 9 feet too.

          So I went to the closet to grab a replacement lightbulb. I was glad I'd stocked up on the screw types -- I find they hold in place far better than the bayonnet variety, and besides, Home Depot always seems to have the best prices on my Phillips, which I find far superior to Sylvania or any other brand. I dragged a chair from the dining room into the kitchen. I stepped up on that chair and got my balance before I started to unscrew the spent lightbulb -- and just as a side note, I'd really caution anyone to be very careful when doing this, because I've had the experience of falling over while performing this task, and I tells ya, it ain't pretty. Spent lightbulb: unscrewed. I toss it onto the carpet. I grab the fresh lightbulb and screw it in.

          Voila. Light.

                  Wow bigmattyh, never have I seen such a long discussion about a lightbulb .

                  Ever touched a hot lightbulb? I have I only did it so I could say I did it and you know? To see if it's hot and all.

                  I hate lightbulbs though, I'm just gonna live on solar light from now on as my lightbulbs (I have 4 in my room - one of those funny lights where there's 4 bulbs ) and one blows out every 2 weeks.

                        Or you can help the environment AND the department of nuclear energy if you simply give yourself an overdose of Uranium and have yourself glow orange.

                            Hey! If you hold a lightbulb by the actual bulb loosely with your finger tips, and aim the metal part directly towards the ground, it won't break when you drop it! LOL!!1!
