CNN Writes Obituary for the Incandescent Light Bulb

CNN has written an obituary for the incandescent light bulb. It’s quite funny as we get rid of these bulbs forever.

“It lit up the world and showed us all our way. It served presidents, princes, and paupers with equal alacrity,” wrote the national news outlet. “It brought the writings of Yeats, Joyce, Rowling, and Trudeau to millions of bed-readers, and helped countless people around the world avoid stubbing their toes in the dark. And now, it is no more. Farewell, traditional light bulb. As the clock strikes midnight, the light dims on your reign as the mechanical illuminator of human existence. Rest in peace.”

Back in 2007 President George W. Bush signed a law to replace standard incandescent bulbs with more efficient bulbs. These 75-watt and 100-watt bulbs were already banned and this year production stops on 40 and 60-watt bulbs.
