I want pajamas that are flammable. Who gave the government the right to make that illegal? Ding-dang nannies…..
Please get over this; it’s such a small part of the way of the world. Incandescents are woefully inefficient, create great amounts of heat, cost way more in terms of energy expended, and therefore contribute to needless pollution by the energy companies who have to provide more energy for the same light, and cooling for large spaces full of bulbs.
“It’s for your own good” applies here. Government is not totally wrong 100% of the time.
