Tonight I went to Home Depot to get some 60 watt compact fluorescent bulbs and some 25 watt bulbs for my ceiling fan (which takes 3 lights and was down to 1 that worked). They had a special on the fluorescents: a 4-pack for $4.88. And they weren’t even encased in a hermetically sealed consumer-proof plastic clamshell, nothing but cardboard. They’re actually 14 watts and give off 60 watts of light (I wanted 75-watt equivalents but it was either 100 or 60). The stupid little fan lights use 25 watts and won’t last nearly as long. And they cost almost as much: 4 bulbs for $3.68.
