    Should high capacity strip lights be banned or should there be freedom of enlightenment.

    I believe all lightbulb changers should be trained and certified or there could be blood running in the streets. The horror of it all, where are the children.....save the children!!!!

    FYI, "Luminaire. A complete lighting unit consisting of a lamp or lamps together with the parts designed to distribute the light, to position and protect the lamps and ballast (where applicable), and to connect the lamps to the power supply." per National Electrical Codes and Standards 2002

    I definitely have too much time on my hands.

    I'm just trying to figure out what QK is trying to say!

    He is completely off base on this one. We never run ourselves in circles here. We are always polite and agree with everyone.

    QK thanks, that was a good way to start the morning.

    Are lasers technically lights? They are high intensity and pinpoint accurate. You could take out an eye with one of those things.

    They should be banned along with lamps with two or more of the non-necessary features:

    -dimmable switch
    -multiple bulb sockets
    -brass attachments
    -lampshade (light suppressor)
    -a socket that can support any fancy shaped bulb.
    eschew obfuscation

    As for lampshades, you like them IWB or OWB?

    Also banned is track lighting, it allows to much freedom in placement and directional control of your light output. It makes it to easy to "spray" the room with light.

    And I am an industry professional, The proper term is "Lamp" the "Lamp" is installed into a "Fixture" or "Light Fixture" or even some of the smaller simple units are referred to as a "Lamp Holder". The upper end Lamp makers are Phillips, and Sylvania, but beware of the cheap crap coming out of China.

    I agree, the LED lamps are superior, someone actually invented a higher performance unit with reduced recoil. It's not just a gimmick people.

    Light bulbs, or lamps are unnesscary we do not need them. All of our lighting can be provided by candles and oil lamps just as the framers of our Constituion had. The oblivily didn't intend for us to use electricity.
    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.
