Dim Bulbs

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 10:57

Remember those CFL bulbs the dimwits in congress want to force you to buy in order to “save the planet” from the imaginary threat of anthropogenic “global warming”?

I have refused to buy a single one. And now I’m feeling smug about it.

Consumers who are trying them say they sometimes fail to work, or wear out early. At best, people discover that using the bulbs requires learning a long list of dos and don’ts.

John J. Miller tried buying some, not to save the planet but to save some money, and got stung.

But the dumb things keep blinking out. They don’t last 10,000 hours, as advertised. I’m lucky to get a few of them to last 10 hours.
