One, but first we have to research lightbulbs...do we go with standard, LED technology, or compact fluorescent?

Will the light be too glaring or stark with the LED, will the compact fluorescent we choose "hum" and make us nuts...impact on enviroment, energy savings, quality of light...

Oh we'll change it, it just may take awhile.

How many of me does it take to change a light bulb?


Just one but I have to finish watching Benny & Joon first.

None! I would never use a light bulb as the light would hurt my eyes too much.

Only 2, but knowing aspies and how much trouble they have with relationships, it's difficult to imagine them ever having sex. Oh, and the light bulb would have to be pretty big too.

One, but it took me all day, because I misinterpreted something the lightbulb said and we had a huge argument.
