    was it at least an eco-friendly light bulb?
  8. You forgot about the 5 people who will say that the foreign made bulbs (that were previously made in the USA) have horrible quality control and are no longer living up to the name they used to stand for.

    Also, the 80 people who will say that Brand B light bulbs are just copies off of Brand A bulbs, and last only a limited time due to cheap construction and materials, despite some Brand B bulbs lasting years without a problem.

    200 to say that the MarkBass LMII can do it all by itself with the punch of a SS head, but with the warmth of a tube.

    You forgot to add Major Metal screaming "Metallica!" and uttering random Metallica lyrics in the process.

    One to ask "Is the lamp itself american?"
  15. 2 to argue the fact that light bulbs made on CNC machines are inferior to those made by hand and another 4 to argue whether Korean made light bulbs are just as good as US made ones, as long as they come over here to be set up.

    Six more to offer their views which kinds of filaments in the bulbs would best do the job.
  17. You're forgetting 25 people starting an argument over which provides better, more authentic light: regular filament or fluorescent bulbs =)
