Invasion of the Fluorescents

A dyed-in-the-wool leftist Democrat eco-freak relative stayed at our house. On Sunday morning he ran off to Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Lowe's while the rest of the house was still trying to shake themselves awake with massive doses of coffee. When he got back, he proceeded to change most of our lightbulbs to these energy saver fluorescents. They're supposed to last a very long time and use much less electricity. He estimates a $20 savings per month.

I thought that was pretty bizarre, but pretty nice too. Now I've got a bin full of old bulbs that still work. Damn wasteful green freaks.

  • At least you can throw all those traditional bulbs in a traditional landfill with no environmental repercussions.

  • Funny, I had a green-freak friend dogsit a few weeks ago and she did the same thing- she chucked the perfectly good ones! Arg, wasteful hippy-crits. :)
