BTW, you can still score regular incandescent 100 watters from Amazon. I 
bought TWO cases! That should hold me till the industry comes out with 
an alternative that 1) actually produces equivalent light output [vs 
their lies] 2) lasts a reasonable time given its absurd cost 3) or is 
reasonably priced 4) MOST IMPORTANT, my comfort rules: does NOT flicker 
or "sparkle", put out funny colored light, or give me a f*****g headache.

Screw IT! I'm not gonna be a guinea pig for $5 - $40 products that suck. 
I KNOW what's sucking power in my house (HVAC, water heating, 
dehumidifier, stereo, PC farm)
