I wonder if compact fluorescent light bulbs were not so long-lasting as we were led to believe. I’ve filled the house with them and they go out quite often…more so than incandescent bulbs. I theorize that the average house has light switches that don’t provide even current as you turn them on and the bulbs can’t take any variation. Maybe there are better bulbs out there or something? Maybe some that can withstand fading.
UPDATE: These things are going out all over the place. They are Feit Electric flourescent bulbs. Avoid them like the plague.
