As Dave said, that's an interesting way to put it.

I've been to plenty of terrible restaurants that didn't make me sick :)

Yeah I avoided it for a while because of the credit card thing, but from what I understand it was just an employee or two, not the actual business doing it.

Honestly it'll do it no matter how it's mounted I would think. I'm surprised nobody has had their ASA/NV go flying while unscrewing the bottle :) (or, if it did happen they didn't tell us)

The kelvin rating is just a way for us to talk about how the bulb "looks." The real difference is in the actual spectral response of the lamp. If the spectral curves of the 2 lamps are similar and...

I think the best that could be done is general estimates like we have with the chart, but include fixtures with crappy reflectors. Most low-cost fixtures don't have good reflectors and so they can't...
