    Topic evolution on TZ-UK

    Q: How many people does it take to change a lightbulb on TZ-UK?
    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.
    17 purists who use candles and are offended by light bulb discussions.
    6 to argue over whether it's 'lightbulb' or 'light bulb'.
    Another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid.
    22 to tell THOSE 6 to stop being idiots.
    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.
    249 to post meme's and gif's.
    19 to post that this page is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a light bulb page.
    11 to defend the posting to this page saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant here.
    16 to post 'Following'.
    36 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.
    7 to ask if the brands of light bulbs used are worth the money.
    19 to tell them that if they like the light bulbs, buy them.
    5 People to post pics of their own light bulbs.
    15 People to post "I can't see S$%^!" and use their own light bulbs.
    7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs.
    4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's.
    13 to comment "Me too".
    5 to post to the page that they will no longer post or are leaving because they cannot handle the $!%cking light bulb controversy.
    6 to report the post or PM Eddie because someone said "f$"
    22 to ask if there is a flounce in progress.
    349 to post flounce memes.
    4 to say "Didn't we go through this already a short time ago?".
    13 to say "Do a search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs".
    1 to bring politics into the discussion by adding that (insert politician of choice) isn't the brightest bulb.
    4 more to get into personal attacks over their political views.
    Eddie to ban the light bulb posters who took it all too seriously.
    1 late arrival to comment on the original post 6 months later and start it all over again.
    Cheers..
    Jase

    Surely 1 post to ask what light bulb to buy and 1 to ask how to do it first?

    1 to ask how big is your lamp shade? because that looks like a clown bulb in there.
    8 to point out how 100W bulbs are a passing trend
    6 who agree 45W is their sweet spot

    I don't like the gap in the bracelet, particularly daft when the original had fitted end links.

    27 to cream their pants at the thought of bringing back Halogen bulbs now that weve voted Brexit and escaped the shackles of interfering Europeans and their energy-efficient LED lights.


    13 to blame Jeremy Corbyn/non-white people/Rolex ADs/the Honey Monster because the bulb broke in the first place.

    If only Rolex made light bulbs, Omega made limited edition light bulbs, Steinhart made homage light bulbs and G-Shock made digital light bulbs life might be easier.

    But wait, PP have just released a Nautilus light bulb and the 'I'm considerably richer than you' brigade will want those...

    6 to post that you can’t actually get the lightbulb you want due to availability issues,
    1 to post that he got his lightbulb but took it straight to a grey bulb dealer who then put it up for 10k more
    43 to post condemning the profiteer
    43 to post defending the profiteer.

    1 to post that “his” bulb dealer had told him that if he bought a lamp, lampshade and extension lead he could “magic up” the bulb he really wanted (in direct opposition of the claimed “waiting list” for said bulb)

    2 to post this isn’t true

    1 to post a “unified bulbs in stock” thread
    2356 people read the thread


    1 person to bump the thread with a speedposting “looks great”

    1 person posts “light that bad boy in good health!”

    1 outlier to make their first post "how I made my own lightbulb" with a homegrown garage project that puts most niche commercially made bulbs to shame

    Well there are strip lights and red lights, but you'll have to go to the boy's room section to see those bad boys.

    Cheer up chap, I thought this post was funny, hence my somewhat sarcastic reply.

    Surely someone must insult another poster with hes not the brightest bulb and an argument ensues as to how that is finished?

    WTF, how did that get in this thread?? Anyway, if you were eagerly awaiting news on whether or not I like the bracelet on a Tudor Ranger, there's your answer.

    Class.


    Actually, a glow worm isn't a worm at all, it's a beetle. I should know, my father used to kill them for a living.

    And then almost immediately after all that, with light bulb awareness suitably raised, the OP coincidentally offers for sale on SC a job lot of guess what?
