The lightbulb in my room wasn't working, so I got onto the desk, took off the old lightbulb, got a new one to replace the old one, wrapped the old one and put it in the trash can.

What brands of lightbulbs do you recommend?

Is using the desk safe, or should I use a ladder next time?

Now do the same with your underwear.

And don't forget to stand on the chair.

Yes, that happened to me also once. But i got up on a chair, had my sister to get me the new bulb, replaced the old one and then put that in the trash can.

I'm incapable of changing light bulbs, so I congratulate you on your light bulb changing expertise.

I remember the last time you changed a lightbulb...

Do you?


Well... It's this experience I posted here. :P

It's not difficult.

Perhaps some expert on Queenzone could post a better technique.

I basically rotate the lightbulb counterclock wise (in some places it could be clockwise, I dunno, here at home it's always counterclock) until it comes out.
Then I put the new one and rotate it clock wise until it looks safe.

Then you can light it to see if it works.

That's a terrible method and I'm going to judge you harshly from now on for using it.

I assume you have a better method then.

Yeah, but why the hell should I share it with someone who changes his lightbulbs like you do?

Well, according to MS word, you're WRONG.

(Unless of course there's a difference in the UK spelling.)

It did. But even lamer than usual. Read his opening post. That is *supposed* to be funny.


Anyways...

How many Rafs would it take to change a lightbulb?

101

One to do the job, 99 to share in the experience and one more to boast about it on QZ
