I'm  Posting This Here Because It's As Close As  I Can Get On This Topic We May Be Taking For Granted.

 

I Have No Idea What This Man Says Is True... Sure Sounds Exactly What Our Gov. Would Do.

 

If True, Please Be Very Careful.

This was over 8 years ago.I read the piece on it back in 2008. The EPA got out of the light business  right after that.The lights made after that time dont have high amounts in them. The one's that were coming from China did and those are the ones they stop here.You may thank General Electric for man dating the CFL's and phasing out the light blub.They pushed the gov hard for that change and in comes CFL's from China with high levels of Mercury.  that was over 8 years ago Will.  Peace

Nice Catch Toke And I Thank You Very Much... Back Around That Time My Wife Had Dropped 2 CFL Bulbs At Different  Times And Merely

 

Swept And Vacuumed Up. Then By Accident As  She Was Taking A 1,000 Watt Bulb Out Of The 5k, White Powder Leaked Out  And She Did

 

The Same Thing. I Thought My Solution Was  To Borrow My At The Time In-Laws Rainbow Vac {The Type Where No  Bags Are Used With All  

 

Being Vacuumed Up As It Goes Directly Into A Water Bowl To Catch Much Of It.} I Still Have Worries. Well Toke, You Know You're Intelligent

 

And Catching Something That Can Be This Freaky Handling It, You Kind Sir Relieved Much Stress With Your Setting The Record Straight.

 

You Are So Good At Seeing These Things. Seriously, Thank You My Friend...  Been On My Mind For Years. We Had To Do The Same Thing

 

Just Months Ago On Our Bathroom. I Had Just Starting Our Bathroom And Just Couldn't Finish It. For Years It Sat. I Hope This Remodeling

 

Isn't Driv'in You And Kitty Nuts ? Soon, It'll  Be Just A Memory And A Super Fine New  Bathroom. For That Background Noise, Do You Have

 

Your Headset Or Ear Plugs ?

 

Peace Brother And Thanks Again Very Much For Revealing This Truth.... A Grateful Will

Yeah... At First CFL's Would Last 2-3 Years, Then 10 And Now A Lifetime. Or  So They've Stated Right On The Package. All BS.
