I’ve replaced many CFLs. Seems at least 1 goes out every other month. More expensive CFLs plus the need to drop it off at a collection center when they burn out, and the tint and output is inferior to incandescents makes the CFLs a clear winner.

Yeah, right, that's where I take mine too.

I have about a dozen CFLs just sitting on a shelf. I stocked up on incandescents the past couple of years. I didn’t mention that the incandescent in the lamp post has an electric eye, so it goes on and off slowly. No big surge to blow the filament.

It would be a shame if people got into the habit of disposing of old CFLs at city hall. It would be an even bigger shame if people accidentally broke the bulb while positioning the HazMat sign.
