Sparkle ponies don't screw in light bulbs! It might damage their manicure, then they could put a snag in their costume with a hangnail.

how many know-it-all Burners does it take to change a lightbulb?

one, but he'll critique the type of bulb you have, ask for another kind, try to ascertain if the wiring is up to code (while knowing nothing about wiring), let you know that you've given him the wrong kind of screwdriver to remove the shade when it doesn't need any (and don't you have any better quality tools), explain using big meaningless words the co-efficiency of radical particles in determining the throughput of charged electrons that needs to be understood before this delicate operation can be undertaken (and offer links to papers that have nothing to do with the actual bulb-changing), complain to other people that you are doubting their ability to complete the change and then leave without changing it because the variables are too broad for the mission to be undertaken safely, all while letting you know you're doing it wrong.

Hey! I'm still around, though more lurking than anything as of late. Was at the burn last year, but missed the meet up. Honestly wasn't sure if I'd be remembered.
