27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs.

53 to flame the spell checkers.

6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb"
... another 6 to condemn those 6 as anally retentive.

2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp".

15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct.

156 to email the participant's ISPs complaining that they are in violation of their "acceptable use policy".

27 to post URLs where one can see examples of different light bulbs.

14 to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URLs.

27 to post about links they found from the URLs that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group.

33 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too".

12 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy.

19 to quote the "Me too's" to say "Me three".

If a bulb glows in the forrest how many chickens does it take to cross the road?
It depends on how many trees have fallen in its path, making no sound before they crushed bears sh*tting in the woods.

If they crushed a bear then the trees would have made a noise cos the bears would hear it. What would have been noiseless was the squishing of the bears and their poop.

Alas, you are correct. Philosophy was never my strong suit.
Perhaps I should have suggested that the trees fall upon a box containing Schroedingers cat, which would have been simultaneously alive and dead the split second before the tree hit.

Of course, the resulting release of radiation from said box would kill any chickens before they had a chance to cross the road, rendering silver_foxs' question meaningless...which would take us to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle which states.....AAAAAAGGGHHHHH!!! (head explodes)

I hope your head has re-grown as I forgot to mention the two nearby grey squirrels who were copulating at that moment in an effort to build an army to repules the invasion of chickens who had crossed the road into the forest. So, ALMOST, certainly heard the bears get squished.
