LEDs are bullshit

Post by Captain Goddammit » Thu Jul 16, 2015 10:00 pm

I put a so-called "100 watt equivalent" LED bulb in my EZ-Bake oven, and I've been trying to bake a cake for the last three goddamm days. Piece of crap...

Leds are 'fake' lightbulbs. You're supposed to bake those fake plastic foods with them.

There's a whole lot of shitty 100w going around. From China. Not all LEDs are bad. Just those.

Is there even a number of LED's you could use to get hot enough to EZ bake anything?

I am surprised Randall Munroe hasn't answered this in an XKCD "What if?" yet.
When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

Boxes are ALWAYS the problem.
Do not recycle them, burn them instead.
We can do this.

BTW, the number of LEDs it takes to roast some roast beef is 47.

Yay Ratty! We should go exploring together, that'd be fun!!

And if at night you see big fire shooting out the roof of a van, that Oneeyed Dick's Welcome Wagon and chances are I'll be in it. Run over for a ride!

Yes! I'll look for you. If you're around Mash I'll probably see you because I'll be looking for CO, (do I have the right name?), in regards to the Potty Project. Last year I spent 30 minutes at the man and never made it to embrace, the temple or much of any art. This year I'll see it all. My work schedule is much easier to handle. 4 hours every morning. Excellant. The perfect work-a-holics vacation.

Hee, I take it you're joking right? You know that LEDS are more power efficient because they only put out light in the visible spectrum, unlike an incandescent bulb that puts out light across the spectrum. No infrared means no heat for your easy bake oven.
