A little humor ... :D

How many message board members does it take to change a lightbulb? Answer: 422.

1 to change the lightbulb and post it to the board that the bulb has been changed.

14 to respond and share similar experiences.

7 to caution about the dangers of changing lightbulbs.

27 to point out spelling errors and grammatical errors in postings about changing lightbulbs.

53 to flame the spell-checkers.

156 to write to the administrator to complain about the lightbulb discussion and its inappropriateness to the board.

111 to defend the relevance of the lightbulb discussion.

27 to post website addresses where one can see different examples of lightbulbs.

14 to complain that the website addresses are incorrect and post correct ones.

12 to "leave the board forever" because they can't handle the lightbulb controversy.

and 4 to throw in witty "zero value added" sidebar comments to the lightbulb changing thread that have no actual correlation to the changing of light bulbs in the first place :)

Don't forget 150 to email the moderator to remove the inappropriate discussion, then 100 to cry "censorship" when he/she does.

And don't forget about the 50 that don't really know what a light bulb, but just like to argue anyway.

Don't forget the 35 who will complain that two women and one minority were given the light bulb changing job ahead of them, even though they had more light bulb changing experience.

.....and the 47 who will claim that they can become qualified light bulb changers because they have watched a qualified changer for 250 hours...

and one more person who just randomly goes through posts and revives one that currently has no relevance, has already been discussed and been at the bottom of the post pile for three months.

and 6,142 knife-sharpeners that want to be light bulb changers, that post to find out if there is a possibility of them ever becoming a professional light bulb changer or if changing from knife sharpener to light bulb changer is silly this late in life....and then wondering what the quickest way to becoming a professional lightbulb changer is....

and 3 to discuss the ramifications if the lightbulb is screwed in too tight.....

or if the lightbulb spontaneously combusts

or if the lightbulb starts talking....

or some other very unlikely possiblities that are simply ludicrous....

And one to wonder if it is our responsibility to change the light bulb or if we should leave it to the authorized LBCs (light bulb changers).

and 2 more to complain about all inspections that the light bulb must undergo before being changed and the inspections of the LBC (lol--funny one JediNein) must undergo before even getting the lightbulb, and the inspections for the spectators of the lighbulb being changed

then an additional 2 to argue that the the crazy lightbulb inspectors are not doing a good enough job of inpecting said lightbulb, said LBCs and said spectators...

n/a
At least three to suggest that one must think outside the "box" to change the bulb.

One to suggest that the lightbulb is really a manifestation of inner weakness and desire.

One administration to confiscate the lightbulb as a security risk.

Two to pat down the person changing the bulb, for unauthorized tools.

Two inspectors to determine that proper approved data was used installing the lightbulb.

One bulb inspector to assure that only a parts-manufacturer-approved bulb was used, and verify the custody chain on the bulb.

Two folks to do background checks on the bulb installer.

Avbug, to disavow any knowledge of the bulb, it's installation, or the circumstances of how it came to be, and to whine about being implicated in the whole affair.

Somebody to toss in gender or racial issues related to light bulbs.

At least one person who complains that we have gotten too far from our roots with the whole lightbulb issue, and who advocates returning to candles.

One lightbulb abuser.

The monkey who steals the lightbulb.

At least three dozen folks who want to know if they're too old to screw in a light bulb.

The bear, who eats the monkey, who stole the lightbulb.

How many people does it take to screw in a lightbulb? None. You can't fit people in a lightbulb.
