I have to say for once here is a newer thing than the other things that doesn’t suck–and that’s great. Fluorescent tube light had been the bane of my recent life (at least while living in korea). Yes they are energy efficient but it’s a horrible glarey unrelaxing light and they were _everywhere_ in korea: restaurants, homes, workplaces = everywhere.

So when I saw these energy-efficient, coiled fluorescent-style light bulbs in the supermarket I steered a wide berth, for a while at least. Then I thought, okay we’ll try the kitchen. Pretty soon they spread to everywhere in the house. It’s pretty cool that they can be only using 14watts but emitting the same amount of light as an old 60watt globe. And the best thing is it’s a _warm_ white.

  1. Those are not really comparable to the fluorescent tube-lighting that’s known to induce brain fogs in laboratory animals. Not even similar. What I can’t understand about Asiatics is though is how they can worship neon signs–which give off a cool, ambient feel that anyone would find relaxing–and squeeze them in on every corner of the street but, at the same time, install those flashing fluorescent rays of death in their living rooms. Pretty glaring contradiction if you ask me.
