To put your theory to the test, I'd like to share a similar experience I had with lightbulbs, as line 2 of your theory suggests. We can then see how long it takes before other lines are satisfied before reaching line 6 (the appropriateness theory). Hopfullly suphicient speling misstakes are present to allow others to jump in.. .Why does it take 5 women with PMT to change a lightbulb?. .(shouted) IT JUST DOES OK !!!!!!

I wish to point out that it's not appropriate to make fun of the 5 women with PMT. It's called sexual discrimination when you point out that women have issues with trivial maintenance tasks around the home. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

Not to mention the 323 who disagree with the Guvnors view on why the lightbulb failed in the first place.

Don't forget;. .. .121 discussing the finer points of the 'Service Advisory' issued by the OEM of the socket manufacturer with regard to the changing of the bulb.. .. .182 arguing the merits of the 'Service Bulletin' and whether non-compliance means that the room can only be used for private purposes.. .. .39 asking if someone has issued an STC for the instalation of a non-genuine/after market bulb.. .. .604 protesting that the authorities may plan to issue an AD on the bulb.

I particularly like the "Darkroom Lightbulb".. .. .Turn it on and it absorbs all the light in the room.. .. .Don't point it at the sun.
