I stole this from another forum...but it is funny...

How many forum posters does it take to change a light bulb???


1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed
14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently
7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs
1 to move it to the Lighting section
2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section
7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs
5 to flame the spell checkers
3 to correct spelling/grammar flames
6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another
6 to condemn those 6 as stupid
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
11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum
36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty
7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs
4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's
3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group
13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"
5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they
cannot handle the light bulb controversy
4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"
13 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"
1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

Waiting the rain out here in Tally. House shopping right now...what a PITA! Road with the regular Sunday group, Watched a fellow wrap an '02 triumph 955 he had owned for 2 weeks around a tree. Ripped the front completely off, broke the frame when it pulled the triple clamps away. He froze around a corner at about 100...hit the brakes, stood it straight up, off the road and he was lucky to have bailed about 20 feet from tree. It didn't even have a plate on it yet. 2 weeks! No insurance...he said it wasn't worth the 300/month...I just shook my head and pointed at his $7000. lawn ornament.
He had only been back on his feet 3 weeks since a car hit him on his rc-51, and put him in the hospital. Obviously has more dollars than sense. This is his fourth T/A in 2 years...The best part of the day was when the property owner came out while we were loading the pieces on the trailer, and made the guy pay up $ 50.00 for the damage to his tree!!! :rofl3:

I'm guessing he paid the guy off not to call the cops. :skep:

Yeah while the $50 sucks... a call to the cops or a claim to the insurance for that tree would suck worse!!!

I found out this morning, two weeks ago, coming from other direction, home owner's nephew hit same type tree planted on other side of driveway and almost died...It is a bad curve from either direction...Also, 50 bucks was cheap to keep highway patrol away...This morning I also found out there are some questions about his license and registration, I'll go by the shop this afternoon and see if I can get some pics. I plan to stay away from this fellow so I don't get electrocuted when the lightening strikes again!!!...

It's pretty easy to explain. You just have to ask him how much he loves riding. It's not SMART but it scratches the itch, know what I mean?

He was dumb while he was doing it, and now he's a dumbass for getting caught.
