CFL bulbs can burn down your house

The compact flourescent light bulbs that Washington is forcing you to use could burn down your house, unless you install a new wall switch for each bulb!

So when you read about all the money these bulbs will “save” you, make sure you factor in the cost of replacing all your switches. And don’t forget to factor in the risk of mercury poisoning and the cost of disposing of used bulbs — it’s illegal to throw them in your trash in most places.
