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

It’s good but:

I saw the title and immediately thought someone (the 6 month lurker) had resurrected the origional :smiley:

Arrrh but you see this thread proves there an option not on the orginal
list so therefore this is a very valid post :nod: :wink:

LOL now we need a lighting section!

i think we should tick off the list as we go

Is it an energy saving bulb? We should use one…Less energy and needs changing less often…

however you must ask the question, will it be as bright and therefore sufficiently light the room

Going by my experiences with energy saving bulbs, indeed it’ll be fine. A 20W ES bulb = a 100W non ES bulb.

And a 100W is quite bright…

Yes, yes, but let’s not make the bulb(lamp) too bright…it’s just too hard on my eyes.

Alright then…what about a 12W Energy saving one? Thats a 60W non ES one…

I’d like it to be a 200W bulb, not bothered if it’s ES or not :slight_smile:

It has to be bright in here, otherwise some guys may start wandering about wearing a dress, or high heels, or even lipstick :eek:

… best make it 400W to be on the safe side :lol:

Rather than wasting all this time on light bulbs just pile all you stuff in the middle of the room and set it on fire. That should make things bright.

yes but my house insurance doesnt cover open fires, only nuclear explosions so sorry i cant afford that

Save energy buy a candle :chuckle:

I thought the same wolram :smiley:

thats a rather distressing leap of thought from light bulbs to transvestism Wolly, is there some Freudian connection we should know about? (or should we start calling you Gwendoline?)

When you reach my age mate, you tend to try and avoid sudden shocks :smiley:

I’ve no idea who would do such things … but I try to be prepared, just in case :wink:

oh, and … ** get off my damn porch ** :lol:

Do they do 200W light bulbs?

dunno :confused:

might be easier to get 3 x 60W bulbs in a triple socket - then if one blows it doesn’t matter, no-one has to change it :lol:
