How Many T-Men to Change a Bulb?

To be honest I stole this, but its quite amusing.

1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been
changed.

14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the
light bulb could have been changed differently.

7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light
bulbs.

53 to flame the spell checkers.

41 to correct spelling/grammar flames.

6 to argue over whether it’s “lightbulb” or “light bulb”…another 6
to condemn those 6 as anal-retentive

2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is
“lamp”.

15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that “light
bulb” is perfectly correct.

156 to email the participant’s ISPs complaining that they are in
violation of their “acceptable use policy”.

109 to post that this group is not about light bulbs and to please
take
this discussion to a lightbulb group

203 to demand that cross posting to hardware forum, off-topic forum,
and lightbulb group about changing light bulbs be stopped.

111 to defend the posting to this group saying that we all use light
bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this group.

306 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where
to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for
this technique, and what brands are faulty.

27 to post URL’s where one can see examples of different light bulbs.

14 to post that the URL’s were posted incorrectly and then post the
corrected URL’s.

3 to post about links they found from the URL’s that are relevant to
this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group.

33 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including
all headers and signatures, and add “Me too”.

12 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they
cannot handle the light bulb controversy.

19 to quote the “Me too’s” to say “Me three”.

4 to suggest that posters request the light bulb FAQ.

44 to ask what is a “FAQ”.

4 to say “didn’t we go through this already a short time ago?”

143 to say “do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions
about light bulbs”.

1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and
start it all over again…

genius!

I like that nice find :slight_smile:

That’s a lot of T-men. All that Test swimming around there could power NYC for years.

Rage,rage against the dying of the light.

I don’t see what this has to do with bodybuilding.

Or even “getting a life.” I come here, every day, for tips on how to get and/or maintain a life. Instead, I get posts about people posting about light bulbs.

Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone here has tried the Tabata method. I’m trying to get hyooge and get under 2% BF by next week, so I think I should cut my protein by half, so I’d be taking in like 75 grams a day or so.

Thx!

I have to disagree. Light bulbs are very important to maintaining my daily life. Without them, I would run into shit when it’s dark outside. I bruise easily.
