Kaleea BS: Replacements for incandescent lights (83* d) RE: BS: Replacements for incandescent lights 02 Oct 07


Um, this may seem like a dumb question, but here goes: If the original Edison light bulbs are still working in museums, is it possible for someone to make light bubls in their own home/workshop & use them?
Nest dumb question: do the little light bulbs in the solar garden/yard type lights bother people, too? They seem to all use reflective stuff around them to increase the output of light, but very low watt bulbs.
Irony of life: the local power company is recommending that everybody run right out & buy the new powersaving bulbs (which made me immediately become suspicious), but the local gov't. is threatening to ban them. Funny thing is, the tv station I was watching tell about this (some months back) said nothing about the mercury.
