At least they're a well-behaved bunch, needing no intervention from the moderators.

Yes and a 2 page argument on how light bulbs might be a different concept to light globes. And does this include LED lights and flourescant tubes? Why are you changing the globe anyway? Lights that don't work use less power and are better for the environment. Therefore you sir are a fascist. Which brand? Were they made in China? If they were you are a commie traitor. If they weren't you are a racist.

I forgot to add. Light bulbs are proof of intelligent design. Have you ever seen a fossil light globe or a missing link light globe? No I thought so. So how did light globes evolve form monkeys? Or vice versa. They were created by God thats why.
Great thread.
cheers

It's strange, I wasn't aware that online conspiracy forum members could actually change anything important. We talk a lot but it rarely changes anything.
If we did manage to change the light bulb, the ones running things would cut off the power.

Look, that's just a strawman reply, quit being a shill for the light bulb companies!

You forgot a couple


42 to claim that they were the first to write a thread on lightbulbs.

3 wisecracking Edisons to claim that they were the ones that invented the light-bulbs, and that Thomas Edison looks very similar to a person living in the current (he must be a vampire).

2 to claim that the fossil lightbulbs were already found...on mars and the moon.

1 to claim that the light bulb mentioned in any evidence is just a rock, shaped like a light bulb.

And,

1 person to shut down the thread, because everyone was talking about other things except for how to change a lightbulb.

Not correcting your list, just appending onto it.

If it had been a Nikola Tesla lightbulb it wouldn't need changing.

Or an electrical outlet.

In fact there would be an immediate conspiracy theory that the light-bulb had never been changed.
It was still the same light-bulb, under a different name.
