      It's a trick question! Everyone knows it takes one conservative hubber and there's not enough liberal hubbers to handle the job.

      I was thinking of something more witty, for now though, that will do.

      You're right. They wouldn't bother changing it. Who needs a light on when there's the soft glow of the monitor to illuminate the immediate space around the hubber?

      However some may only have the courage to change it if there's a hub about "How To Change A Lightbulb" with step by step instructions with accompanying photos! big_smile

    Six hubbers, One to hold the bulb and five to turn the stepladder, unless!  They get on a forum, then it takes about two hundred of us.  We like to dish INPUT, darn it!

    Well, that depends on the kind of lightbulb, of course.  For a CFL bulb, most experts recommend that you...

    Should the question not be how many but how long?

    We would all run out and write a hub not necessarily about changing a light bulb, maybe the history of a certain high paying adsense keyword light bulb. The writing will be well thought out, grammar and spelling better then that of the schools these days. Not once will they actually ask anyone to do change the light bulb (similar to not asking for clicks) and will assume that no one from the community will actually change that light bulb.

    So how long does it take to get the sort of good traffic that will do what we want without us having to  ask for it?

    Only 1 just we're just so awesome and smart.

    Unless millions of light bulbs need changing at once. Which they probably do haha.

    That'd make a good business. Light bulb changers.
