From the Coalition of Hippy Hoarders Against the Ban

In the EU, the Final Solution is approaching on September 1 2012 when all remaining incandescents for general service are to be banned by the Brussels Bureaucrats.
Relevant regulation details http://ceolas.net/#li01inx
Alternatively scroll to the bottom of the EU technical document (pdf)

So, unsurprisingly, there are stories of hoarding appearing in the media, as has been the case at this time of the year for the past couple of years.

"Europeans Hoarding Light Bulbs Like It's the End of the World"
the German Die Welt newspaper said yesterday..... and so on.

Putting a little light relief to the theme, and solving the question of what to do when travelling around...
As suggested by the Coalition of Hippy Hoarders Against the Ban:

source  espaniainmortal
"Rings on his Fingers and Bells on his Toes,
He shall have Good Light wherever he Goes"

[Freely from the children's nursery rhyme
Ride a Cock Horse to Banbury Cross...
Perhaps more apropos the original
"Rings on his Fingers and Bulbs on his Back,
He shall have Good Light for any Old Shack"]

Back now to doing something more useful?..;-)
