Going back to the original thing:

One to wonder whether or not it was predestined that the lightbulb would be changed.

Ten to come in with their arguments about free will vs. determinism, and whether or not it would have been physically possible for the lightbulb to have not been changed.

One to tell the wonderer to get on with life and not go 'round and 'round about pointless philosophical questions.

...that is all.

Lightbulbs depend on the free will of the person using them. If I choose to switch a bulb on and off hundreds of times a day I will shorten its life. I am God, as far as lightbulbs are concerned.

Hah, fell right into my carefully crafted trap - these are attack weasels (they train regularly with the seals) and are unstoppable.

more than 5 years, so much progress.
back then anyone wanting to mess with lightbulbs should know so much about physics, electricity and stuff, become a full light-bulb hacker... nowadays any newbie can download the latest lightbul-buntu with auto-installation and auto-configuration, and a lot of eye candy

My gerbils are zombies and carry miniaturized chainsaws. They train with the ghost of Genghis Khan!

Can zombie gerbils change lightbulbs, though? Can they climb step-ladders?

Attack weasels all the way chaps. They have their own set of step-ladders (their real ladders left home).

Brilliant article, that. But a dead badger is really the equivalent of a desktop, so if you want something laptop-size - use a dead weasel.

Mwwhahahahahahahahahahaa! Your puny weasels and zombie gerbils are no match for my flight of Winged Monkeys who need no step-ladders to change a light bulb!

Microsoft are training a squadron of zombie vultures to attack Linux-powered Winged Monkeys that change lightbulbs, but they're not much of a threat since they crash after 3 minutes flying.
