You could stand on a chair and have some friends spin the chair while you hold the bulb in the socket.

That's how I'm going to change the next lightbulb I have that burns out. :D

And nice quote Shalendar. :( I like the bits of my sig in there.

You sir, do not understand what a true comedic document of literature is truly about. The above example was lacking in any real substance, going off of an untrue stereotype that's come from the emotional reactions of people on the internet. I find it rather crude, derivative, offensive and boring.

haha thats funny, that reminds me of something else i saw.


if you give 10 forum members a rope and tell them to pull, 3 will push, 3 will tell you to buy a A5, 2 will complain about paintball "snipers", and the last 2 will tell you to stay away from smartparts.

I'm not a professional on this matter in any way, sort or form, but I believe the 10th one is either changing a light bulb or pulling the rope. However, here are some google links to ensure that he changes the light bulb correctly, but he should really consult a professional first before he changes the "lamp". Now I'll be back in six months to start this all over again.....

And the British will show up, well, because they always do.
