    I'm with the right on this one. The government can FOAD.

    And I'm also installing dimmer switches to save electricity, so don't hate. Or do, I don't care. You can pry the incandescent candelabra bulbs out of my cold, dead hands.
    I'm with you. We have several very large chandeliers. I would not put those things in them ever!

    QUIET!! Don't give them any ideas.

    The Livermore light bulb is cool--I've been to see it a few times when I lived there.
