Have just replaced a lightbulb

#1

that is supposed to last ten years (lasted one) with another that is supposed to last 25 years.

Place your bets.


#2

I reckon it will last 60 years


#3

(Did I ever post about my great-Nan’s lightbulb that still works from during the blitz?)


#4

No. I would love to hear it but quickly a story of my own.

I got a lava lamp in the 90s revival. Haven’t used it since the 90s. My son spotted it in a box the other day and wanted to see it. Works perfectly.

Which side was you nan on in the blitz?


#5

<4 years. Baby Balonz and Ol’ Daddylonzo will accidentally break it doing a Star Wars lightsaber duel


#6

based on the broken one, this one will last 2.5 years


#7

It’s in the bathroom under a dome thing so that shouldn’t happen. We do have a lightsabre, a Vader one. I’m not sure if getting a second would be wise…


#8

That is some solid maths, mate.


#9

isn’t it just?

Yes, replaced one in the kids room yesterday.


#12

one year (also based on the broken one)


#13

Great article. Heartwarming stuff. I assume she has replaced that bulb with an LED one to keep fuel bills down?

Great shame about Woolies too.


#14

Only one person (me) has clicked this link! You should be ashamed of yourselves!


#15

She’s dead now (and was dead at the time of the article), the ladies in the article are my Nan and her sister.

there’s something about not touching a certain bit of lightbulb otherwise it shortens its life. i know this cos i was in some shop and the geezer in there was showing me the lightbulbs and I got one out of the box and he did a sharp intake of breath as if it was the most ridiculous thing he’d ever seen and i was like “I’m gonna buy it mate don’t worry” and he was like “ooookay mate if you want a lightbulb with a shortened lifespan that’s fine with me” as if I was the stupidest cunt he’d ever met.
