  • 8 People to point out if you don't like Swiss prices then you can always leave
  • 2 People to say that the cost of lightbulbs is high, but so is your salary
  • 14 People to point out it's Switzerland, not Swiss
  • 12 people to point out that the average salary in Switzerland is only 70k and that relatively speaking lightbulb are expensive
  • 2 People to point out that if they don't like people complaining about prices in Switzerland that they don't have to read the thread

Re: How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb?

  • 5 people (that I can think of at least) to post witty and/or denigrating remarks based on a typo or unintended double-entendre and have absolutely nothing to do with lighbulbs, their replacement, spelling, price or availability

No! No! It is true Edison got the idea from a Siemens patent called the Volksglühbirne, later it became the Glühbirne then just "Birne" and now they are extinct.

Re: How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb?

Are you sure you can afford lightbulbs with a CHF120K salary? Maybe it's better starting a thread about it, as I'm pretty sure it's never been done before...
