How many forum members does it take to change a light bulb?

Borrowed this from Nikonians, pretty funny!

So, really, how many forum members does it take to change a light bulb?... Answer = 30

1 to change his light bulb and to post that his light bulb has been changed
1 to share a similar experience of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb might have been changed differently
1 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs
1 to move it to the Lighting section
1 to argue then move it to the Electricals section
1 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb"
1 to condemn the last poster as stupid
1 to condemn the last poster for being disrespectful
1 industry professional to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"
1 who was in the industry, and posts that "light bulb" is perfectly correct
1 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum
1 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum
1 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
1 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs
1 to ask who has light bulbs in stock in Greenland
1 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's
1 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group
1 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, adding "Me too"
1 to ask who has light bulbs in stock in South Georgia (the island that is, not the lower half of the U.S. State)
1 to post that his light bulb is faulty and ask if anyone else is affected
1 to say "Yeah, me!"
1 to ask how he can find out if his light bulb is faulty
1 to say that his light bulb was faulty all the time but now it's repaired and is faulty only some of the time
1 to say how much he loves his make of light bulb and how bright it is (and so what if it's a little bit faulty?)
1 to say that he's never had a faulty light bulb and why would anyone want to change it?
1 to say that it's the best light bulb she's ever owned
1 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they are sick of this light bulb controversy
1 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"
1 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.

So, should I use a standard bulb (wattage?) or one of those cool compact florescent ones? Has anyone came out with a LED upgrade yet?
