You know that old style house I was raving about that I live in and junk? Well, not much had been done to it in it's first 50 years. The first big thing I did to it was ADD insulation to the attic. Sheesh. And on top of that insulation, now, this weekend is a bajillion incandescent lightbulbs. I'm storing the hoard up there. They are light enough.
I was semi-onboard with the enviromentalist dream of all twist CFL bulbs. The light sucked but they last 10 years. So it made economic sense. Scroo the Mother Nature side of the equation. Thing is, they don't last 10 years. They last the same amount of time as an incandescent.
So while they are more expensive, at least they don't last longer.
So the hell with them. I've laid in a 60 year supply. You can have my 60-watts when you pry them from my cold dead hands.
