How many???

How many ham operators does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
  • 1 to install the bulb...
  • 1 telling them they're using the wrong bulb...
  • 1 telling them they've installed bulbs for 35+ years and that he knows how to properly install one and that the installer's doing it right...
  • 3 to commandeer the group conversation to discuss a completely different topic (e.g. body aches/pains)...
  • 1 to post on Facebook about how frustrating it is to listen to all the garbage in the house over a stupid bulb...
  • 7 to come into the group just to say they're "listening" then back away...
  • 1 to question whether the installer has the right license class for the wattage of the bulb being installed...
  • 1 to casually throw in the fact that you only need a 10w bulb to see most things in the house...
  • 1 who is a Brand X bulb mark and has all the products made by that company...
  • 1 who worked for the light bulb company telling you how great that bulb is...
  • 1 who hasn't worked for the Brand X light bulb company (or any light bulb company for that matter) to tell you why Brand Y is still better...
  • 1 to compare Brand X and Brand Y and brag that their Chinese bulb does the same job for less money...
  • 1 who is the house owner and jumps in there to tell everyone to play nice or he'll shut off the power to the house so that no one gets to use their light bulbs PERIOD...
  • And 1 to announce to the entire house that there will be an ARES net in 5 minutes and clear the house so that they can use it.
If you've been in ham radio for any length of time you know exactly what I'm talking about.
