Gadzooks! The Government just posted is look for a few good light bulbs.. and the still haven’t found the one with the right stuff. This article from the New York Times details the government’s search for a LED light than can replace your everyday 60 watt incandescent. They have been running this contest for a while but nobody is entering! Are LED manufacturers just too shy?

No Entrants Yet in Contest for 60-Watt LED Bulb

By Eric A. Taub Last year, the Department of Energy announced the L Prize: a contest to be the first company to create an LED-powered lamp that could replace a standard 60-watt incandescent bulb. The winner would receive cash, recognition, and potentially lucrative government contracts. One year later, no one has stepped up to claim the award. It’s not for lack of trying, said James Brodrick, a Department of Energy official overseeing the government’s LED lighting initiative. But creating an LED lamp that can produce the equivalent of 60 watts of light while using a fraction of the power of a standard bulb is no easy task. Speaking at Lightfair, the lighting industry trade show, Mr. Brodrick told me that five companies have been discussing the contest with him, with at least two pulling out all the stops to win. He expects the first entries to come either this summer or fall. The cash prize — several million dollars based on what the government eventually allocates — is the least important part of the competition. The winner could also get large orders from the U.S. General Services Administration and the Defense Logistics Agency, which is looking for advanced lighting that can work under stressful environments, such as ships at sea. Mr. Brodrick estimates that there are 1.9 billion sockets in the U.S. that currently use 60-watt bulbs, so the potential market could be huge. But before any company can claim the prize, their product will have to undergo rigorous testing. That includes testing about 12 samples for light output, another 200 for expected life, and two to three dozen for their ability to operate under stressful conditions. The company also must be able to manufacture a minimum of 250,000 per year. The Department of Energy is trying to head off the debacle the country initially experienced with the introduction of compact fluorescents, when many consumers found that the first CFLs did not last long and gave off unpleasant light. “This is the Kentucky Derby of lighting,” Mr. Brodrick said, who added that he wouldn’t be surprised if a dark-horse winner emerged from the shadows at the last minute.

Aries: He’ll jump up to change it right away, but if you don’t have the right size/type bulb, he’ll forget all about it. If you wait a half hour for anything, he’ll forget about it and go on to the next chore.

Taurus: Wait, I’m not ready to change the bulb. I have to move the stack of ironing out of the way and them I’ll go down to the basement and dig out a bulb. Serves me right for buying whatever’s on sale; they never last. OK, now I’ve got it, now where is that Aries?

Gemini: Too busy answering emails and phone messages to actually do it. Is surveying everyone he knows about which brands are best.

Cancer: Loves every task involved in keeping up her beloved home, sweet home. Is only too glad to give her precious home a new light bulb.

Leo: Why don’t we rip out the old fixture and put in makeup lights around the bathroom mirror? How can I possibly look my best if I have to use this 50s-era bathroom to prepare for my entrance??

Virgo: Yes, Virgo has an assortment of new bulbs in organized trays by size and wattage in the basement. Takes 30 seconds to pull out a new one and efficiently replace the old one.

Libra: Honey, can we put in pink lights? They’re so much more flattering. And can I hold the ladder for you, honey? You know I love it when we work on a projects together. What do you think, dear?

Scorpio: Can find his way around in the dark very well. Forget the light bulb. Just take my hand, honey, and trust me.

Sagittarius: Ooh, it’ll be like roughing it. Let’s camp out in the back yard, I can put up a tent in no time. How about it?

Capricorn: Don’t get excited, it’s very simple and routine. Call Virgo to efficiently replace the bulb and bill me.

Aquarius: Better check the continuity on that lamp, it could be the wiring. Better yet, maybe we should rewire the whole house; this is a safety issue!

Pisces: Why does this house hate me? Last month it was the plumbing leak. Next month it’ll probably be the roof flying off. Take me now, Lord.

The lightbulb joke is an example of an endless-variations joke and has numerous versions that satirize a wide range of cultures, beliefs, occupations and groups.Generally, the punch line is derogatory to the group that is the subject of the joke.

The generally acknowledged “original” goes as follows:

Q. How many [insert target group here] does it take to change a light bulb?
A. Ten — one to hold the light bulb and nine to turn the ladder around.

Over and Out
