Aren’t they also a potential bio-hazard due to their mercury content?
Once again... the feds helping us goes very wrong.
We stocked up on incandescents and probably have enough 40w, 60w, 75w, and 100w bulbs to keep our great-grandchildren in warm, safe light.
Don’t won one! Don’t want one! Went to S-Lowe’s in 2011, but up a bunch of all the bulbs necessary, after doing the mental figuring, to last me till they carry me out of this apartment! I started this year, since last year was a ‘year of doctor crap’, by replacing them all. ALL incandescent, ALL cheaper on MY pocket, and fits MY budget!
Happy New Year!
Just wondering - aren’t those long tube florescent lights the same? Don’t they have mercury in them as well?
This is a, ‘Good-News/Bad-News’ situation.
The good-news is that I can’t afford to buy these bulbs because of the new taxes.
The bad-news is the new taxes.
“Federally-permitted lightbulbs a cancer risk”
Anyone paying attention when this moronic law was passed already knew this, but was called an “anti-environment, anti-science whacko!” at the time, as you recall.
Funny how these things ALWAYS come full-circle to bite us on the a$$, isn’t it? Mustn’t let little things like FACTS get in the way of the Democrat/GE agenda, can we?
Good to know Consumer Reports gave them such a good write up.
From "Amazing Grace":
William Wilberforce: No matter how loud you shout, you will not drown out the voice of the people!
Lord Tarleton: (insulted) People?
” - - - Exposure to the bulbs could lead to premature aging and skin cancer, according to doctors.
It can also cause skin cancer in the deadliest for, and thats melanoma, said Dr. Rebecca Tung. - - - “
Where is the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) when yuh need ‘em?
This is exactly the kind of crap that happens when government dictates technology.
Watch how fast they will remove these bulbs from the Pentagon, the Capitol Building and the White Hut and expect the populace to continue using them.
Any of you mothers willing to expose your babies to these money-saving light bulbs?
Did you ever notice old plastic cased computers turn yellow with age? Mostly on the side facing windows with exposure from sunlight. But also on the areas exposed to fluorescent lighting in offices.
I have old computers and toys in rooms with only incandescent lighting, and they don’t suffer from yellowing. Yellowing happens with the UV from fluorescent lights. Try it on the new CFL bulbs, it will quickly yellow light colored plastics. Then consider what CFLs are doing to your skin.
Mail all broken, burnt out CFL’s to your Cong - ress - Critter / Imperial Senator, in protest.
Has anyone had one of these hippie contraptions pop on them? I had one burned out the other day. When I pulled it out, there was a big hole in the glass. Ungood.
The Congress is so gutless that it can’t give us back the Edison lightbulb. It is so afraid of being called anti-environment that it will continue to support a POS lightbulb that doesn’t work and is dangerous.
And we expect these turds to fight the nazi Buckwheat and his coven of fat welfare mommas with cell phones stuck in their ears?
What’s the highest watt incandenscent I can stock up on today?
Where should I get them?
Thanks in advance for all info.
Psssst!... Hey, buddy. You wanna buy an incandescent light bulb? Cheap!!??
