Hi paul wheaton,

I wanted to reach out to thank you for putting together your video and your experiment. I appreciate the time and effort this sort of thing takes.

I've had my suspicions about CFLs for a while because of anecdotal use in my own home. I don't think I use many lights in my home for 30 seconds or less, but I do seem to change bathroom fluorescents more often than the others.

I think it's great that someone with a genuine interest in economy and nature is making an argument against the received wisdom of fluorescents.

Thanks again for continuing your years-long experiment (and for reporting even "suspicious" results that run counter to your thinking).

Have a great day!
