No bulbs needed because sunlight was stored in earthen pots coated with padarasam to be used at night. All in the vedas, you just need to read it.

I prefer a German bulb with nice 6-straight or v-10 filaments arranged in the front! Or another German bulb which has its filament in the rear and lights up very brightly for many, many years

For me ... one of those bulbs with a super huge filament... coated in banzai blue with white skunk stripes.

Note from mod

Folks

Lets end the bulb stuff. It is not worth moving this to another thread and it is n0w wearing thin. Another more stuff on this will not be deleted. We might delete the bulb stuff later once the topic is cold in order to let others have better access to the other jokes

Moving away from the bulb series, here's a joke i recieved as a forward :

A Indian and an American are seated next to each other on a flight from
Los Angeles to New York . The American asks if he would
like to play a fun-game. The Indian, tired, just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks.

The American persists and explains that the game is easy
and a lot of fun. He says, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know
the answer, you pay me $5, and vice versa."

Again, the Indian declines and tries to get some sleep.

The American, now worked up, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $500."

This gets the Indian's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment, agrees to the game.

The American asks the first question, "What's the
distance from the earth to the moon?"
The Indian doesn't say a word, reaches into his wallet,
pulls out a $5 bill and hands it to the American.
"Okay," says the American, "Your turn."

So the Indian asks, "What goes up a hill with three legs
and comes down with four legs?"
The American thinks about it. No answer.
Puzzled, he takes out his laptop computer and searches
all his references. No answer! He taps into the air-phone with his modem and searches the Internet and the Library of Congress. No answer.
Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and co-workers.
Checks the input. All to no avail!

Finally, a long time later, he wakes the Indian and
hands him $500. The Indian thanks him and turns back to get his sleep.
The American, more than a little miffed, stirs the Indian and asks,
"Well, what's the answer?"
Without a word, the Indian reaches into his purse, hands the American $5, and goes back to sleep!

Once Punjab police gets invited to USA to participate in the "Best police force" competition.
Competing along with them is Japan Police, Scotland Yard and FBI.
The task is straightforward and simple
"From the jungles of Africa catch a Lion alive. The first team to do so wins".
So the race starts.
First are the Japanese, who catch a lion in flat 5 hours.
Close on their heels is Scotland yard who return in 7 hours.
15 Hours later FBI has also come back.
24 hours pass, there is no sign of the Punjab police team.
This way 3 days pass, and people are getting worried, so a rescue team is assembled.
They search and search for hours and then hear some noises which sound like a Bull baying in agony and lots of expletives and dull thud thud sounds.
They rush towards the source and here's what they discover.
A bull has been held upside down, and is being beaten up by two policemen, who are shouting "Bol to Sher hain, Bolda ke phaniye teriyan lattan"
Translated : Say that you are a lion or we will break your legs

Default 0 to 200 in 2 sec!

A husband got in big trouble after his wedding anniversary.
His wife told him the day before: "Tomorrow there better be something in the driveway for me that goes zero to 200 in 2 seconds flat."
The next morning the wife found a small package in the driveway.
She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale.
