I use a 100watt lightbulb in the winter to keep my rabbit's water bottle from freezing. I guess he'll get thirsty this winter.

Just like with my ballast dilemma - if you search long and hard enough on the net, you'll find a patriot or two willing to extend their middle finger to the overbearing government and sell you one anyway. All the banned products are still being made by American companies, but are "supposed" to only be sold overseas.

If I want to buy a light bulb, then dammit I should be able to buy whatever damn bulb or ballast I damn well want!! :mad3: EPA sucks!!
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are
neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. ...Such laws make things worse
for the assaulted and better for the assailants, they serve rather to
encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with
greater confidence than an armed man."

- Thomas Jefferson, quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in "On
Crimes and Punishment."
