How many Air Race Fans does it take to change a lightbulb?


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.

6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ...

Another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid.

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.

19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take
this discussion to a light bulb forum.

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

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.

5 People to post pics of their own light bulbs.

15 People to post "I can't see S$%^!" and 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 link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all
headers and signatures, and add "Me too".

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

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 George W. isn't
the brightest bulb.

4 more to get into personal attacks over their political views.

1 moderator to lock the light bulb thread.

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

plus three "accredited" light bulb changers who won't do it unless they get to use their professional equipment, because providing light to the masses is too important to be done with simple cardboard tools.


(its a joke, people!)

Great one!
Of course the light bulb can't be changed without an environmental study, then a committee of engineers will have to meet to draw up specifications for the light bulb and an approved process for it's budget, procurement, changing method, required staff and disposal of the old bulb. Once the processing is completed and the proper permits aquired and funds allocated, a contractor can then be hired (by public bid) to actually do the work. They will arrive to find a candle has been substituted during the year it has taken to go thru the proper channels...

Has anyone considered that the lightbulb may not want to be changed? :dunno:

Okay, I gotta confess.......I swiped some of the content fromt the first post of this thread and changed the title a bit to reflect those of us that also frequent other threads about airplanes and such (Warbird Information Exchange...WIX). It was just too dang funny not to share with others. :)

Anyway, some of the responses are similar to what you've seen here, but I ended up making another post on the thread that pokes a little fun at myself. I've been part of a little thread on WIX where I've given semi-daily updates of our work on the B-24 (7 months...nearly 300,000 views), and my "light bulb" post, on page 2, is making fun of my B-24 stuff.

I reckon I just felt guilty about taking your hilarious topic about changing the light bulb (which fits the WIX folks well too) and moving it somewhere else...I hope I didn't step on anyone's toes. So here's a link to the "other" site for y'all to view. :D
