Related, I can't stand shopping for light bulbs. There are so many different kinds and measurements that for me it is impossible to tell what I want or what I'm buying without standing there for 20 minutes. There are watts, lumens, watt usage, tons of different types of bulbs, different sizes, different connections. Then when I have a ceiling fixture with 3 bulbs and one burns out I inevitably buy a bulb of a different variety and you can see 2 different kinds of light coming from the fixture.

Light bulb shopping is one of my biggest shopping pet peeves right now, rational or not. :mad:

With QuickDraw here. Completely rational peeve. Best part: you never seem to be able to buy the same kind of lightbulb for the same socket two times in a row!

Yes...and sometimes you have to bring in the burned out bulb, just so you can eyeball to make sure it's similar. So it's usually sitting in your pocket, god forbid you bump into something and spend the rest of your evening pulling out shards from your upper thigh. Also, I don't like how lumens are meant to be ubiquitous, but who actually knows what is a good lumen amount per bulb?

Not to mention lumens is a poor practical measure for light brightness.

You guys know that if you order on amazon, it will remember your order and then you can make sure you get the same bulbs as the past ones right?

How are you supposed to know what kind of bulb you need if you can't open the box and look at it and compare it to the old bulb? If i tried ordering on amazon there's a 10% chance I'd get the right kind of light bulb.

The bulbs should be labeled?

I don't know. I figured it out and I haven't gotten bulbs outside of Amazon in years.

What should they call it?

It clearly isn't baby yoda, it's a baby after yoda is already dead.

I don't know, but I don't like The Child, and I like Baby Yoda. That's what this thread is for right?

Sure. I just didn't know what you wanted it to be called.

If it's irrationally baby yoda, cool. Was just curious if it had a different name.
