Now this might seem like a silly question, however I hope that as the conversation evolves, people will disagree and challenge my answer.

Before I give it out though, I am going to leave time for other members to post their answers and challenge others.

So what do you think ATS?

How many lightbulbs, does it take to change a lightbulb?

Edit To Add: As it's been pointed out that the question is bit open ended. It is intended to be. I want whatever you think the answer is.

Reformulate the question if you wish.

Just one.

This might be a one line post, but it is one with logic and sense.

Two

The old useless bulb replaced with a new bulb.

Or are you counting the lights in the bulb factory among other things?

When i first saw this i thought about energy saving light bulbs.

As in 'How many normal light bulbs will we have to use before we realise we should be using energy saving light bulbs?'

So my answer would be, too many.

Only one light bulb. It has to want to change, however...

Ok, I say none...

You already have a lightbulb, how can you change it for another lightbulb..

No one said the lightbulbs work or dont work..

Why bother changing it..

Cheers,

JQ.

You've posted this in Psychology, Philosophy and Metaphysics, so I'm guessing this is related to one of these topics. Could you please direct us poor subjects as to which of those 3 you are relating your questions?

Psychology would suggest our state of mind in how we answer.
Philosophy pertains to our universe and our relationship to it in regards to lightbulbs.

Metaphysics, in the case of lightbulbs, would be best explained through the transmutation of incandescent bulbs (as one member above noted) into flourescent ones.

A hint would be nice.

No problem

I am posting in the philosophy because it comes down to what we classify as a lightbulb and how we are told that things are no longer what they were, if they have been used.

Is a non-working lightbulb still a lightbulb? Most people would say no, as they have answered the question above with a 1.

The answer is 2, since you need to replace the broken one with a working one, the task still requires that you interact with two lightbulbs.

None, nothing is ever changed in the universe, matter is never made or destroyed, therefor, the lightbulb was always there.

I believe the answer may change depending upon time of day and weather conditions. Your question is far too open ended for me to even venture forth a respectable answer.

That's the beauty of the question my friend. Your answer can't really be wrong as the the question's meaning is subjective to the human experience.

What do you think I am asking? Whatever you "think" the answer is, that is what I want.

you have not set adaquate perameters to answer the question, because of the symantic structure of the sentence.

if it is day time, why change it ?
and if it it is night time you might not find it (it's dark and i am assuming there is only one light bulb to change)
so maybe you need none
get some candles and have an early night!

None. You wait for the chicken to cross the road and it will change it.

You need three lightbulbs.
1. The lightbulb to be replaced

2. The lightbulb to be installed

3. Another bulb that casts light on the socket, or else you will be unable to complete the task, assuming you cant see in the dark.
