A dumb dim light bulb

In 2011, we've turned over a new leaf.

We are going to post about dumb dim things.

Here is the first, the eco-light-bulb that costs triple the old bulb, is a toxic mess to dispose of and casts a gloom so crepuscular you'll be buying candles to light your rooms. (We've tried them. We do not exaggerate.) The light cast by the new bulb may also trigger epileptic attacks and migraines.

Thank you EU and British politicians.

This was not well thought-out, except for those lighting companies poised to make a bonanza.

But oh, yes, energy costs for the new bulbs will be lower until the government raises them.

Link thanks to Instapundit.
