Australia has announced it will ban incandescent light bulbs in three years in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, becoming the first country to do away with this technology, which has been in use for more than a century:
People this is why I'm a genius. John Howard is actually a reader of my blog and saw the posting a few days ago. Ipso facto, this new legislation from down under. Bow down before me! Bad news if you happen to have a peanut allergy.

Likewise, I realize you may prefer yellow light, but the simple fact is that we need Big Brother to show us the way.
