    Default I finally figured out what happens in 2012!

    Incandescent light bulbs become illegal.

    I now direct you to my topic I made many years ago, then reposted.

    12 to post to the board that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy

    Seriously, this reminds me of when low-flow toilets were mandated.

    I have no problem with florescent lights I just find it ludicrous that something like this requires a federal mandate.

    It's going to take them THAT long? It doesn't take a genius to figure out which design is superior. Shame Edison didn't think it up.
