...and just one to smash the lightbulb so we can all have a little privacy while we poop on the summit.

[-( If you people would just look at the statistics you would know that almost nobody dies from electrocution when changing a bulb. You are way more likely to die falling from the ladder or getting caught in bad weather and having an accident while trying to rush down the ladder to get away from the arc. [-X

None.

14ers members are all busy either climbing or fighting on 14ers.com

8 people to rescue an abandoned, scratched bulb on the sawtooth.

3 people to yell at ya'll for leaving your broken bulb waste on the summits of 14ers.
