"Obama also banned sales of the 100-watt incandescent lightbulb in 2012 as part of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 was taking hold. Conservatives complained at the time, calling the bans an infringement on consumers’ rights to choose how they light their homes."

It really doesn't bother me except for the fact that those bulbs made good pump shed heaters in the wintertime. I'm glad we have LED bulbs now.

My weed plants like a combo of the grow lights and the incandescent, it seems.

IDK, seem to get less males, and more dense buds when I started including those wavelengths...I'm almost out...

I use LED and compact fluorescents in my cave. But, I do indeed object to anyone telling me what lighting I cannot use.

I also bought a bunch of light bulbs before the ban and still have plenty of them left.

I dislike the government getting involved in the free market system. I'd like to be free to make my own decisions. Yes, I like the idea of LED bulbs. I have almost all LED's in my home. I also have to have incans for my pump house in the winter, it takes 2 100w bulbs to ensure that the pressure switch doesn't freeze, and keeps the pressure tank at an even temp as well. They're on for 2-3 weeks every winter, and I had to buy "rough service" bulbs at 4x the price. I found out, those aren't "rough service", they're the old 100w incans with a much higher price tag.

Oh boy. Rough service. They feel like messing someone over huh? I'm like you, I really didn't appreciate the government deciding it's in charge of micromanaging everything we do. Kinda like the forced digital TV transition. I didn't appreciate that much either. But I still like LED bulbs. Unfortunately I figure the price of them will go up if incandescents come back, cause most people are gonna go for the "cheapest" bulb right now, instead of the more expensive, but cheaper in the long run bulbs. Maybe I'm wrong. It is nice to have options though. I don't appreciate being told you can't have that by the nanny state.

Huh?

Speak more slowly please.

Besides the poor quality of light,

I always thought the dumbest thing about those curly Q fluorescent replacements was that they contained mercury.

How stupid is that ? 

 

 

OOOOOh  Radio Frequency interference, right ?

Now what's CFL ?

More coffee....

 

Compact fluorescent= CFL ?

I think the reverse.

The price of LED's should come down if they have to compete with incandescents...

 

No ?

Dude, weed is a spiritual miracle. 

Everyone should be doing bongs when their feet hit the floor getting out of bed in the morning

more at 11:11 AM and PM, and another the last thing before the hit the rack.

The world would be a better place, everyone at peace with the cosmos.
