    isn't changing a light bulb akin to throwing your hulls in the trash? there's nothing wrong with those hulls, i can reload them. just as there is nothing wrong with that light bulb, it just needs a new filament! btw, if you do have to dispose of the bulb, do you spread it around in the garden like you do powder? or do you soak it in oil and then bury it in the back yard like you do primers? or do you... good luck with it
