Post 345: One Bulb Short of a Landing Party

Many Baby Boomers grew up watching Star Trek: The Original Series. The next generation watched, er, The Next Generation. We absorbed many ideas about what the future would hold. We invested in iPads so we could be like Commander Data. We got Virtual Reality head wear so that we could drop in to the holodeck and live out a fantasy. I mean, another, totally different, fantasy.

And this is what all that future dreaming has led to.

Hologen Accent Light Blubs 12Volt Light

I have about 10 Blubs

I could be wrong, but I bet it says halogen right there on that box Sparky so nicely included in the pictures.

The design of the package has changed some, but I am pretty sure it has always said halogen since someone burned a finger on a hot lamp and tried to sue. Not to mention he failed to say these are free, so if you didn’t notice that they were in the free stuff, you’d be trying to pay him.  Just another case of Sparky being clueless. Thanks, Ralph, I feel smarter all the time.

  1. Hologenesis spurs some thought–the Greek root being hollos, entire, or whole. So a creation entire, in a fell swoop bt inference. Or, the classical from of Magick in fantasy writing.

    Now, halogenesis would be the creation of astronomical lensing (and not a new iteration of a FPS, although it couls happen). Alternately, halogenesis could be the hollogenic (😁) creation of auras (or canonization) of people or groups at will.

  2. Ok, required lighting designer rant.

    The bit you put in a lighting fixture which illuminates is a “lamp.” Lamps may have glass bulbs but are not required (cfl & led lamps have “fixtures”).

    Bulbs are for gardens.

    Bulbs are for CL.
