Forum Humor

Saw this on another train forum, thought it was funny!


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

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

1 to move it to the Lighting section

2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section

7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs

5 to flame the spell checkers

3 to correct spelling/grammar flames

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 lightbulb 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

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

3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group

13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, just to 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 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

almost sounds like the Air Force and our aircraft forms, it takes like 10 people to say, yes, there is gas on that jet.

Ike,

I used to be a load master on C5's. We used to say, "We can't take off, until the gross weight of the paperwork, execeeds the gross weight of the airplane."

Hi Glenn, I see you're switched on to this topic, most illuminating, watt LED you to it? A beam? or just a filament of your imagination?

And so far (at least) 3 to use comments related to the lite bulb as a springboard for off the topic discussions

Wow, a F-15 crew chief and a C-5 loadmaster. I work at the depot that abuses both! Go Air Force.

we send our jets for Depot to Korean Air Lines at Kimhae. We also send them there for airframe related TCTOs and such. All I know at Kunsan is F-16s.

Well.....you might as well add a Buff Screwchief here too. As long as the "overflow" lighting is being discussed. Make that retired "Screwchief" from the "Silly Air Circus"

Ike,

Ya -16s at Kunsan. It's been a bunch of years since last time I was there. Long enough to have forgotten a lot.
