Think of it this way, Frank; this bulb has now lasted better than $50 worth 
of other bulbs... If that bulb were on the shelf today with a $50 price tag, 
you wouldn't even think of buying it cuz it is too expensive. We can't win.

On another note, the CFL bulbs take a couple minutes to reach full 
brightness (less in hot weather or when held in front of a heater; longer 
when encased in another shell to look decorative).
