And my folks refuse to listen when I tell them Boosh was a drooling buffoon. Seriously, The new CFLs are dangerous. I don't recall needing a HAZMAT certification to clean up a standard 40W bulb.
Maybe next they can tell me I should what type of underpants I should wear. After all, I can't figure out what type of light bulb is best...edit on 16-12-2013 by JackSparrow17 because: (no reason given)
What I may end up doing is buying the LED types when I absolutely have to.
I'm sorry...just how does that work?
While the mercury bulbs are dangerous for chemical reasons (toxic as hell) they consume less power than resistive types. AND, because of this, can not radiate more EMF.
Just trying to understand but you are in favor of continuing to produce a light bulb with 10% efficiency?
Embrace LED bulb technology, and throw away the inefficient, ancient incandescent bulbs.
Aren't LEDs too bluish? Most LED flashlights I've seen have a white-bluish light I don't like.
