      3 Phase Light Bulb? No problem. Many households have them I'm sure. My late mother was a great
      user of them. Course we called them 3-ways, but 3 phase use is entirely possible none the less.
      Think about it.

        When I was a kid, light bulbs weren't invented yet. Had to manipulate our bone slide rules by candlelight.

          The voltage in the US is being changed from US volts to metric volts as of that date, and you have to go out and buy all new bulbs if you want lights after June 30.
          That date isn't very metric-y. We should have changed on 10/10/10.

          I bet we're going to 100V at 100 hz, which will make Michael Jackson's voice sound funny when you play an old record.

            That's because it is pre the change. See post 26.

            It would be against procedures to change early, and you know, we are ISO 9xxx here, so we have to follow them. You could get the procedure changed. maybe, but it would not matter because there is an obligatory 12 month (old months) delay in any procedure change. And it would be against procedures to change retroactively. after that, although you COULD maybe get that procedure changed, but.......

              Light bulbs bah!. Real men use heavy bulbs.
              I guess all the readers of this forum are male as nobody has put forward the feminist point of view. The bulb>socket interface is clearly a sexist male invention designed to reinforce the domination of the illumination industry by men intent on using their electrical power to exploit women.

                Clearly the right thing to do in these times would be to redesign the bulb/socket interface to be more androgynous. We should give the light bulb a choice whether it actually wants to be a light bulb or not. Who knows, some light bulbs might be born as different appliances, stuck in a light bulb form. Who are we to force a life of illumination on a bulb, that actually identifies as microwave, or refrigerator.

                  We haven't heard from the feminists yet because of the current gender choice of the interface. Image the upheaval when a female socketed light bulb is discarded after years of use and replaced by a younger model.

                            you forget the 2 who've never changed a light bulb and the 6 who've done it once chirping away on exactly how you should do it because they are right.
