How long do you think it'll be before this thread is locked? or do you think the admins might keep it open for a joke? :)

I don't see why it would be locked, other than a lack of use. They'll likely keep it till it gets old, then blow it up.

What are the odds. My parents had a similar problem, except they ran out of oil for the furnace.

And I figure the bulb will never be changed. Was there anybody that went out to buy a replacement one anyways?
