    At least two that ask if you really need the light in the first place!

    Well from personal experience I can say that they don't smoke and catch fire like CFLs do. They also reach full brightness almost instantly like an incandescent, not a minute or two later. They also last longer than a few hundred hours. (8,000 hours my foot, I dated my cfl bulbs when I installed them.) Give them another 5-10 years and they'll replace CFLs.
