How many geocachers does it take to change a lightbulb?

Recommended Posts

I want to know if they had permission to put that bulb there to start with. I looks like a private socket to me, and the was nothing written about permission.

The guidelines only require adequate permission to replace a light bulb.

Yeah but is his adequate permission going the help me when I'm the one changing the bulb and maintenance man, who was not informed about the bulb, walks up and ask what I'm doing to his light fixture?

Was it a UNION bulb, only UNION members can install/change/unscrew/screw/touch UNION bulbs and ONLY with a special union light bulb change work order form filled out in triplicate with the presidents signature - the form myst be clearly posted while the bulb is being changed.


This geocaching thing is getting out of hand. First we pay for a GPSr, then some of us opt for GC.com membership, then there's that GSAK thingy to buy, and now on top of those, i have to pay UNION dues just to change a bulb. Sheeeeesh, what will it be next? :blink:

Found the bulb site fine, but it turned out to be a lame urban microbulb. I HATE lame urban microbulbs (LUMs)! So, I refuse to change this light bulb or to log a change. In fact, I am filing an SBA on this bulb because I hate lame urban microbulbs and nanobulbs so much!

This topic has nothing to do with caching. I will be moving it to another forum.



Oh, wait. I'm not a moderator, but if I were I would move it. I don't know where I would move it but I would move it somewhere just because it hasn't been moved yet.

I hear George W. Bush uses light bulbs. I would post a pic but can't get it to work. And I tried a link but the moderator said that wasn't allowed. And my original post was moved to another forum so I tried to do a search but couldn't get it to ##@% work. I don't think I will come here anymore because everyone is jumping on my case about light bulbs......


:laughing: Okay, okay. Just kidding.


Really, though. You forgot the one geocacher who hides the bulb in the cache to begin with and the one who holds the GPSr (and won't let anyone else touch it).
