If the LORD had said, "Let There Be Light!" today ... it would have taken at least six days for the damm thing to actually turn-on and stay-on, such that, by the seventh day, He would have needed a drink.

... before the Devil could get there on the eighth day to start working on the mandatory upgrade. ("Aww, to hell with it ...")

New light sockets have SecureSwitch enabled. If you want to use Linux light-bulbs in them you must purchase a key from Microsoft®.
