Under the Watt-saw Convention, anyone injured in a room during the changing of a lightbulb is entitled to $75,000, unless the person or surviving family members can show wilful misconduct-ivity on the part of the lightbulb owners.
In the famous Thai Lightways International bulb explosion near Kathmandu, surviving family members were able to receive above the $75,000 Watt-saw cap because they were able to show that the bulb crew engaged in wilful misconduct-ivity by screwing in the bulb 360 degrees when they meant to screw it in only 180 degrees. Everybody got screwed in that event.
Consider the fate of the Concordia, the super-bulb developed by the French and British electrical industries. This revolutionary light bulb took the world by storm, promising light that would travel faster than the speed of light. Its sleek, delta-shaped glass fixture, powered by four Olympus titanium/tungsten filaments, transmitted light across the Atlantic and back in half the time required by more conventional, bulky light bulbs. Russians stole the design of the Concordia, unveiling its Concordia-ski months before the debut of the Concordia. With its retractable canards that provided stability during slow-revolution entries and exits, the Concordia-ski stole the show at Paris but met an untimely demise when a small French spy bulb came too close to the Concordia-ski, causing the Concordia-ski to disintegrate during its first public lighting.
Unfortunately, even after almost 30 years of service, the Concordia recently lost public favor when a French version exploded outside of Paris. Preliminary investigation revealed that a three-filament American bulb may have triggered a chain of events leading to the explosion when a .01 centimeter U-shaped metal shard fell off the American bulb, entered a ventilation system and was blown into the waiting socket of the Concordia, which exploded shortly after screw-in when the metal shard ruptured the Concordia's fragile latex electrical contact, leading to the fiery burn-out videotaped by a Spanish trucker's wife.
European electricians and American electricians continue to debate the cause of the Concordia tragedy. Europeans argue that the American bulb should have been maintained more, while the Americans contend that the Concordia wasn't designed tough enough to withstand normal contact with metal shards during screw-in.
