Free light bulbs

condition: good
Check your Spam folder for reply. About 6 or 8 regular light bulbs free, all work but are not the new energy-efficient kind

Light bulbs? Light bulbs, you say?


*rubs eyes*

*looks again*

Nope, still not light bulbs.

Still, maybe I’ll finally have a use for this:

Free Fishwasher

Thanks, Ralph and Mackenzie!

    [lighting corey] Technically, the “bulb” is only the glass covering the filament. he term “bulb” started as a way to describe the shape of that glass–this vice other shapes, like tubular.
    This practice goes back further than electronic illumination, to refer to the blown glass shapes used on kerosene and gas fired fistures, and the globes used over candliers.

    The complete assembly, with socket, electronic parts, and illuminating filament is a “lamp.”

    Which, naturally, causes confusion with those non-fixed lighting fixtures which have convenient bases allowing them to stand neatly on floors or tables and the like. (The industry collective term, “lightolier,” sounds silly, even to lighting professionals, and can be confuting, as there is a manufacturer of lighting fixtures by that same name.)

    For an aquarium corey, there as “bulbs” on the lamps in the hood on the tank pictured. As a general rule, aquarium lamps are in odd sizes, and are not “the energy efficient kind.”

    For the ludicrously curious, many of the new “screw in” (e.g. medium base) LED lamps have “bulbs” to give them the appearance of the incandescent lamps they replace or emulate.

    This looks like the sort of lightbulb that is sensitive to changes in its environment. I wonder where I can find a cooler to take them home in.

    No, guys…the bulbs are right there.


    Under the fish tank….

    Behind the stand it sits on…..

    Other side of that wall…

    On the other side of the room that’s on the other side of that wall…

    In the closet….

    In the shoebox….

    Top shelf, on the right…

    No..wait…in the shoebox on the left…

    Or was it the shoebox on the floor?

    Anyway, they’re RIGHT THERE!

    Sheesh…some people…can’t see what’s right in front of their noses…

    Hugs and Unicorns,

    Why is the fish tank bulb located so close to the microwave? Sushi and Sashimi look concerned.

    These must be some of those discontinued sardine bulbs. Like Sparky, they’re not very bright, but you gotta love their in-canned essence.

    So many nights
    I’d sit by my tank,
    Waiting for someone
    To sing the fish song.

    So many breams
    I’ve kept deep inside it.
    Alone in the dark
    But now you’ve come along.

    And you
    Light up my tank.
    You give me bulbs
    To turn on.

    You light up my rays
    And fill my nights
    With aquarium.
