Elecromagnetic Radiation: CFL vs LED vs Incandescent

RE: Elecromagnetic Radiation: CFL vs LED vs Incandescent
CFL bulbs break very easily!

Last week I accidentally crushed one with my hand. I grabbed the glass tubes in order to unscrew the bulb from a lamp socket. It collapsed. White powder and glass shards sprayed all over my couch and computer desk.

I must break this habit I acquired from decades of unscrewing incandescent bulbs. Grasp the CFL bulb by the *base* not the bulb.

Incidentally, I replaced that bulb with an incandescent because it sits right next to my head when I'm on my couch.
