quote:

The Continuum 2.4, from UK company Ceravision, has a theoretically infinite lifespan. A microwave emitter excites the gas in the "bulb" without any physical contact and reaches 50% energy efficiency, versus 15% for a fluorescent tube and a paltry 5% for an incandescent bulb.

“The lightbulb. People said what’s with the lightbulb? I said here’s the story. And I looked at it, the bulb that we’re being forced to use, number one to me, most importantly, the light’s no good. I always look orange. And so do you. The light is the worst.”

Trump blamed energy-saving bulbs for making him look orange. Experts say probably not.
