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

 

 

19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this

discussion to a lightbulb forum

Mercury :unsure: I thought they just had a sort of gas in them so I just opened the windown, picked the bigger bits up and hoovered up all the tiny shards that were everywhere including the carpet, dogs toys and settee.
