New $60 light bulb designed to last 20 years

Since the dawn of man, we’ve looked to bring light into darkness.

It started with fire. Then, with the discovery of electricity, Edison brought us the light bulb. As time progressed, the bulb became more efficient and lasted longer.

Then came the super efficiency of the squiggly compact fluorescent bulbs that last up to 10 years.

Now, Philips is releasing a new bulb for Earth Day; they claim it will last 20 years.

Just imagine what can happen in those 20 years.

  • When these go dark your newborn, may flunk out of his junior year of college.
  • The Rockets may actually go to the playoffs, nah, who are we kidding!
  • We will probably live through 4 recessions that the government won’t admit happened.
  • Or you could finally pay off the second mortgage you had to take out in order to pay for the amazing new bulbs.

They will cost 60 dollars a pop, ouch.

At those prices, we may just have to go back to burning candles.
