Plz help Urgent!!! You know when you switch a light on, the light comes down the wire and out of the bulb. Well, when you switch off, does it go back up the wire or just disappear? And if you switch on without a bulb in, does it all leak out into the room? And can you collect it in a bucket, like a water leak? Answers ASAP Thnx.

The light is stopped before it even gets to the bulb when you turn it off. Go read "man electricity".

Well, they can do an irish jig.

Those lightbulbs I planted in the garden two years ago still haven't come up. Somebody told me they would grow into an electricitree.

Lightbulbs should grow into street lamps.

Weasels are OK but you have to use a lightweight gui like "fluxbox for small critters"
Smaller zombie animals like zombie rats you would use "Really Damn Small linux" and the CLI.
Personally I like rats, they are my favourite animal
they are small, shifty and disgusting

I think the best lightbulb distro is Damn Small Lightbulb (DSL)

Not really. I had a rat. It lived for three years before we had to put it down because of tumors. They make such better pets than you would think. They are very smart creatures, and if bought at a store, are remarkably clean. Mine would actually sit on my shoulder. I was amazed it never fell off. They are only three dollars a rat, or, they were in 2005. Buy them young and handle them plenty, but be gentle. After a few months, the thing will adore you. Cages are cheap and can be found at goodwill, and you don't have to spend all that much money on food, give them a little rat food, but they are just as happy with a piece of oatnut toast.
