Ugh - I had so many LED and CFL bulbs die on me within months of purchase. I had to switch back to incandescents for a number of years. Lately, they are getting better (particularly Ikea and Phillips brands).

Avoid anything made by Globe.

Strange, I've had the exact opposite experience. Even CFLs/LEDs built for interior only seems to just can't be killed even when used outside in extreme conditions wherehas incandescents fail regularly even if they are built for exterior use.

I used to replace at least 1 out of 2 bulbs each year outside. Ever since I replaced 1 with a CFL and the other with a LED, I've never had to replace a single one and it's been 3-4 years.

Had to replace 3 in 3 years. And we are talking quality LED lights for rooms. Before that, my bulbs had a failure rate of 1 in 10 years.

Yeah, I'm almost disappointed my LED light bulbs are lasting so long. I bought some that are a bit too dim, but don't want to just toss them while they still work.
I bought these in 2015, so far none burned out and they are BAF*.


*BAF = bright as fuch

'I am' is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that 'I do' is the longest sentence? - GC

You know what else can copy my handwriting? A camera.

But a camera can't write a letter in your handwriting.

Neither could I, because I haven't hand written a single letter in 17 years. And my notes use block text, if you wanted to copy that you wouldn't need handwriting recognition. That's why I use it, because everyone can read it, and that's pretty damn important if you write notes for other people to read

What camera does the robot use.

I prefer idiot savants for all my specialized tasks. The savant I'm using now keeps track of the socks I wear and can tell me which mismatched pair i wore on July 8, 1977.
