Did you hear? The light bulb has been invented already.


I have heard.

But in South Carolina there are still folks who refer to it as "the fireless fire that still burns when you try to pick it up".

I see CFLs as a stopgap until LEDs are cheaper.


also the lumens/watt of brighter bulbs still have some catching up to do.

and omnidirectional light is an issue too. They make great spot lights and flood lights, but hopefully, this bulb is going a long way to fix that:

Where does the constitution give the government authority to tell me what kind of light bulb i can use?


Don't sweat it, bad-@ss SC made a law nullifying it and the companies making them are moving there to start manufacturing again. As always, looks like SC is gonna have to lead the charge.

F*CK YOU MAN-MADE CLIMATE DICK SUCKERS!

Article I, Section 8, Clause 3:
[The Congress shall have Power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian tribes;


Commerce clause has been twisted and warped well beyond what the Constitution allowed for.
