The other day, when replacing yet another (GE) CFL after about 10 months 
of service, I observed that I still had plenty of 20-year-old 
incandescents installed, but not a single CFL.  And I purchased them by 
the carton then.

Over the past couple of years, I've replaced the dark-activated 7W 
"night lights" in my home with modern white LED ones.  Big 
mistake--after about 2 years, they're much dimmer than they started out 
to be.  I didn't replace the EL or neon night-lights and they're all 
still fine.

I don't get it.  Or maybe I do.
