Off Topic!

How many Lake Stockton forum members does it take to change a light bulb??? :lol:

1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed
14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently
7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs
1 to move it to the Lighting section
2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section
7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs
5 to flame the spell checkers
3 to correct spelling/grammar flames
6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid
2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"
15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct
19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum
11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum
36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty
7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs
4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's
3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group
13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"
5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy
4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"
13 to say "do a search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"
1 to hijack the thread and ask how to change the horn
1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

Being from the Great White North, I understood what you wrote. You forget that these boys all speak a much different dialect. In fact, the usage of a light bulb is confusing, as electricity is a relatively new concept down here.

I am doing my best to get them up to speed on how to speak fluent English, as well as introduce them to such things as: What a toothbrush and comb are used for, dating someone outside the family, marrying someone outside the family, you don't have to eat roadkill, and, electricity and all its' wonders.

Some of them are from Iowa and Wisconsin, which means they understand these advancements, but are still a bit on the "slow side"!

Now if they only knew that toothpaste is also to be used in the process.

Arkansas McDonald's Employment Test:

McDonalds lines up 3 of their popular food items as a placement test for employment.

-If you can recognize french fries, you are qualified to make fries.
-If you can recognize a hamburger, you are qualified to work the drive through.
-If you can recognize a hot apple pie, you automatically become a regional manager.

Frostbite Falls:
Rocky & Bullwinkle's hometown, is actually based on a real place, International Falls, Minnesota. He nicknamed it Frostbite Falls after one report called the area the "icebox of America". On a map, located on the northern border of Minnesota, right next to Canada, thus the "international" in the name. Today, its known for its recreational activities and beautiful national parks.

And "Frostbite Flats" is a REAL place too. Several years ago, there was a contest to officially nickname the winter-time Lake Mille Lacs . Frostbite Flats won and since has been referred to by that name in USA Today, Good Morning America and CNN and now on the infamous Lake Stockton Forum. No cartoon about it! So there...it's MY thread! lol

Things must get awful slow during those six month long nights up in the far frozen north.....this being one of those Guvner approved equal opportunity places, I guess we gotta put up with the guff. After reading JC1's CW-like post from yesterday, I'm wondering if he might not have been practicing his Iron Cross moves and the rod slipped. We gotta get that boy some fine upstanding Swedish stock female companionship, preferably the human type, so he can spend less time on posting here and more time on the things that really matter.
