Would that be a normal lightbulb or one of these new fangled LED nav light ones?

Best post of the week , but I am concerned, that someone might be offended by identifying with one of the less complimentary categories and therefore will take out an injunction preventing the rest of us falling over with laughter.

when the light bulb explodes whats the best way to clear up the glass


Please remember the capitals and punctuation!!! ;)

Is an LED a lightbulb? Should it not be discussed on its own seperate thread?

Hi, my first post here – Just to say I have worked in the industry and it is one of my pet hates – it is a lamp not a “bulb” whilst the fitting is a luminaire not a “lamp”.

OK that’s one down, one more to go on that one!

By the way:

Since I have been a lurker for some time – does that count as that point as well – or am I too early?
