go to this link and read what you need to do when you break or throw away these bulbs

Doesn't make me want to buy any, even though I'm sure they're safe.

In the interest of trying to be "greem" (and save $$) we put the fluorescents throughout the house; but the light is so awful we have gone back to good ol' incandescents everywhere except where the quality of light dosen't matter; garage, porches, etc.

And that was before all the information about proper disposal and clean-up after breakage came out. Now we're phasing them out altogether.

we'll you better stock up on the old type bulbs,because after 2012 they will no longer be sold and manufactured

I can see a huge black market in incandescents coming; the fluorescents are just inferior in every way--except price and cost of operation.

The electricity company gave me 12 of the 75's. I bought 2 100's for the bathrooms. I like them alright so far. I've been using the lower watt ones in the stove hood for years because I leave it on all the time.

I'll be careful should I break one.
