i don't get it. why outlaw regular bulbs? don't energy companies make more money if i burn the old style? i just read a thread here saying that the gov is considering taxing/penalizing people for using solar panels. do they want us to save energy or not?

You can spend...20$ and never have to change them again.
I got that beat.
The bottle of vanilla that cost me $400.00
My own fault.
I let my license expire.
Drive to the store for vanilla because I was having company and was making cookies for them.
Got stopped for speeding.
Misread the court date on the ticket.
100.00 fine for speeding and expired license.
300.00 to get my license reinstated.
I had no idea that incandescent is going away for good.
I would rather spend $500 on a lifetime supply of filament bulbs than $100 on a coupla LED or flourescent.
personally, I require that light be warm. like a fire. I like to FEEL the light.
i have the same problem with computer monitors but i found f.lux great way for you to control it
I like traditional light bulbs. I need to go and buy some more 40 watts. We go through those a lot in the kitchen and Diningroom lights. It seems we change one every couple months, but there are five in each light.
I hate the little fluorescent lights, I can hear the sound they make. It is much less than the sound of the long fluorescent fixtures but is still hearable. The light on the LED lights is bright, but for some reason it does not seem natural. I don't care for the computer monitor either, it is hard on the eyes. We have a Plasma TV. That isn't as bad on the eyes but the depth perception is not there like on the old TVs. I think that is the digital myself, it is not full spectrum anymore.
Up here, we use very little lights in the summer, in winter it doesn't matter, the heat from an incandescent bulb just helps heat the house. I haven't paid over fifty cents for an incandescent bulb yet, except for the rough service bulbs in the garage. Well, we did buy bulbs from the Lions Club before, but that was sort of a fundraiser for the chairity work they do.edit on 10-12-2013 by rickymouse because: (no reason given)
I hope they come with a guarantee, like for when the door slams too hard or the lamp gets knocked over...
