    ** The year is 2012AD.

    Full prohibition is now law.

    No store in the land has any normal bayonet fitting lamps or Edison screw
    lamps to sell.

    But CFLs are on sale everywhere, packed in neat boxes of dozen, just like so
    many eggs.

    You can get a dozen box of mini-spiral ones for as little as $12 or the
    larger ones for up to $36.

    However, many lamp users are more EQUAL than others !!!

    Millions of folk bought up a lifetime supply of household lamps in the
    previous 3 years so have no need of the new CFLs.

    The prohibitions apply to selling 240 volt incandescent lamps with the two
    common fittings, but no others - so the sale of 12 volt halogens has boomed
    with 50% of homes now using these energy hungry little suckers.

    Hordes of Ebay shops are offering the "illegal" bulbs to the public direct
    from China - $25 a hundred, plus delivery.

    Hawkers are busy all over the country, going door to door, with packs of
    bargain priced "illegal bulbs" offered for cash - no questions asked.

    CFL sales have fallen to the lowest level in a decade.

    Energy consumption is up too.

    Greenies are tearing their hair out .......

    Let me predict the one fuckwit who will attempt to corner the market. Should
    beat repairing toasters, eh?
