    rofl..... doesnt matter if they are energy saving, the fact that they light up means they will give off heat (its what happens to bulbs).

    which is why they're light bulbs. light bulbs obey classical physics, while leds obey quantum (and also dont produce enough power to generate heat)

    I've only ever approached it in Economics, but I think it goes something like this:

    You've just been arrested, accused of murder. So has your friend. You're dragged off to separate cells, to be questioned, before you get the chance to talk to each other. The situation is, if you both plead not guilty, then you both get off, no problem. If you both plead guilty, then you both get 10 years. However, if you plead not guilty, and your mate pleads guilty, you get life and he gets 10 years. What do you plead in order to minimise your prison sentence?
