From The Wall Street Journal:

I get up most mornings at about 5 a.m. and read my Journal by the light of a lamp with sockets. Being greenish and patriotic, I replaced my two 100-watt incandescent bulbs with two of the new fluorescent bulbs of the same alleged wattage. Result: I couldn’t read my Journal. My wife had the same experience. We gave our fluorescent bulbs to someone who doesn’t read.

    The 60-cycle flickering from CFL is abominable.

    They cannot be dimmed.

    My wife bought a few once, I immediately threw them in the trash.

    What bothers me most about them is that they look like white twirls of dog sh*t
