    Default Air Race Fans.....

    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!)
