If someone posts something on BLF that doesn't make any sense, that's on them.

I certainly didn't force them to post nonsense.

Since when are you an electrical expert to judge others, especially with all the nonsense that you post? LOL

This looks like a first-time poster asking a question about how could this be possible. If english is not his first language it could be difficult and the grammar might not be correct.

Here’s what it could be:
Someone (not the OP) is claiming that a silicone coated wire inside the lamp would allow full light with less heat and with reduced power input—and the OP is wondering how could this be true, since lightbulbs make heat (radiant light)?

Think outside the box sometime.
Do you know where the Matheson corporation is located and who was a founder? Maybe somebody works there.
James Matheson

You can defend nonsensical word salads all you want, but I'm not going to.

We'll just have to agree to disagree.  :-)

(And, for the record, I don't post nonsensical word salads like the original post of this thread.)

Wasn’t Light Bulba the sequel to Gogol’s Taras Bulba?

Yes he was. Old Taras died of the bulbonic plague. When people tried to revive him, by going back in time through a worm hole, someone stepped on the worm. The parts they could retrive are known as Light Bulba.

Yeh, that’s the one.

Jamesmatheson1 hasn't logged in for over 3 days.

I wouldn't be surprised if he were to insert a spam link into the original post.

Never understood how that could have worked when both parties didn’t knew the stories behind the headlines.

And why in the world do we all remember this episode?

Spambots frequently post strange things, then disappear for a while, then insert a spam link into their strange post.

I don't know if Jamesmatheson1 is a spambot, but he might be.

You pick it up on the street.

Same reason why “Shaka, when the walls fell”, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat”, and “Bye, Felicia”, get around.

I get it. I think everybody is confused because this is in the wrong forum. It should make perfect sense to those people that want to continue to play with 1.5 volt batteries.

Back in the incandescent days i had some bike lights that ran on AAs, was useless for lighting so for night riding on trials i just didn’t bother with them.
Why use lights that light up nothing, not on roads so no car worries, trails with no people at night but animals and ate expensive alkaline AAs for breakfast.

I usually give newbies a warm welcome, but they have to make sense (and they can't be trolling or spamming.)  :-)
