Bulb Numbers




Everyone is always jabbering on about how we need to stop using regular old light bulbs. But, to really convince people you need numbers, tests, men in lab coats (that's right, only men can perform these sophisticated tests). So we've scoured the internet and brought the numbers to you. Check this one out. Or this one The verdict: if you're sort of smart, you'll switch to fluorescent, and if you're really smart you'll switch to LED. Here's the trick. Don't feel bad right now, and don't go run out and spend a ton of money switching every bulb you own. But the next time one burns out, and you're puttering around the store, say to yourself: "I'm sort of smart. I'll buy some fluorescent bulbs." You'll feel great about yourself.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
