3. Not yet, but it looks like an interesting movie
I don't do movie theaters so I have to wait.

10. Because changing light bulbs is the only household chore I've ever successfully mastered.
These CFCs are not quite the same and I don't want to start all over learning a new skill.

14. You can't use them with dimmers! Not even the X-10 dimmers!
That's just life for now.

15. There are dimmable CFLs, but they just don't work very well
I've tried a number of them, and they just don't put out the quality of light that I want in my bedroom - soft and warm.

16. That's how Hitler started.
Chapter 5 of Mein Kampf: "Ich mussen incandesish Bulben hoarden".

17. It is a little known historical fact that Warsaw held the largest cache of bulbs on the continent.
