A guy I work with is in the electrical department and he attended a class to stay up on the rules and codes , the instructor told him in 2014 they will no longer be selling incondecent light bulbs , it will only be fluorescent and LED . So if you like the glow of a standard bulb stock up ! The instructor also told him that electric companies will be raising their rates up to 3 time as much because they won't be making as much cause we're trying to save. How fucked up is that.

Nice. The power companies are the ones telling us to conserve energy and even how to do it. But now they aren't making enough $$$$ so they have to raise rates. Nice.

I have an under tank heater but a real heat emitting light is beneficial.

The rocks are good for lizards they burn most snakes.

I absolutely hate the light from CFL's and LED's. I shit you not, I will literally buy $XXXX worth of the old school bulbs to last me a lifetime if I have to.

the main reason for the switch is the new type bulbs are made in china, and there was a co. in the US making the old ones, and we cant have our imagine taenished by manf. something in this country
remember the switch to digital TV, where do you think all the converter boxes were made-china
where do you think all the new dig. tv's are made-china
anyone see a pattern here, that has been long developing, lol

I hate how when I open the closet door and flip the switch the CFL light flashes 6 times like a stobe light. I fucking can't see after that.

I've used nothing but CFL's in my house since 2002. I've changed one of them in that time. There are GE's and were $20 for a pack of 8 at Sams. I'm sure they're cheaper now. The color temp is very close to an incandescent bulb and none of them flicker. Quit your whining and watch your bill drop.

Bullshit. I put one CFL and one standard in my garage door opener as a test and the standard comes on 2 seconds before the CFL and the CFL starts out dimmer and then ramps up.

Apparently you guys don't have any dimmers in your house.
CFLs sucks for Dimmers.

I have CFLs in my bathroom. Turn on the light and it's almost dark until your done pissing.

Leave the light off and listen for the splash. Problem solved.
