    I ran across this video the other day and while watching it, I suddenly realized how a small group of citizens could easily:

    1) shut down the federal government, 2) make the govt repeal it's mandate on these light bulbs, or 3)accomplish both objectives.

    If there were accidental breakages of these bulbs in key government buildings daily then they would have to shut down the affected buildings and evacuate them each time for at least a few minutes to comply with EPA regulations.

    One will wreak just as much havoc as 100 and you donít need an assault - just Joe Shmoe dropping by his favorite govt bldg on his way home from Walmart and accidentally dropping one out of his Walmart bag.

    I had no idea you were supposed to dispose of those bulbs in a special way.

    I don't use them because they don't fit in everything and because of the delay. The other day, I replaced a cfl bulb in my sister's bathroom with a normal bulb, placing a normal side by side with a working cfl. The light from the normal was much brighter and more "clear".
