I have an incandescent bulb I just replaced after almost 30 years of regular use at full intensity. It was powered thru a bedside "sun-rizr" controller that ramped up the power smoothly, instead of a typical switch that shocks the cold filament with full current. Made a night vs. day difference in bulb lifespan as well as my sleep habits!
A friend of my parents once invented a device that screws into the lightbulb socket before the bulb that acted like a surge protector for incandescent bulbs. This dramatically increased the lifespan of the bulbs in his house to the point where he never had to replace the bulbs. GE learned about it when he tried to patent it and got the device patented before he could. This device has since been buried
you're really a Swifty lmao
The light bulb cartel were mostly Jewish.
Sadly it's the exact same concept why they won't cure cancer, if your not sick they can't make any money from you!
So much energy is spent working in circles. No actual progress can be made until we move on from repeating the same tasks.
i am homeless in a tent right now. if i could've saved using more durable materials, lower prices, and less waste, i would still be in a house.
As I’m watching this on a rounded 14pro max
And yet the Chinese led bulbs I got at the dollar store are already failing. Accidentally bad? Conspiracy?
Our species is deeply flawed.
Lol, I'm watching this a year later where the iPhone 14 doesn't have rounded edges. Pay up Veritasium. LOL
Except led bulbs circuit is designed to only last maybe twice as long as an incandescent lightbulb
Time to boycott phillips and all these other companies.
Of course the only people that can work together in this world are the rich assholes working together to screw the little people over.
God, I hate the industrial revolution and it's consequences
The truth is, good things aren't last forever.

Base of every business is profitability and continuously never just once. So system of upgrading and adultrations came to existence. Scientific community might be honest and loyal but sponsors have no mercy.
at wuhan, with fauci bucks, they have started the planned obsolescence of people... they were lasting too long. it's the Melusine pact.
