How many unicyclists does it take to change a light bulb? Given the number of engineering/software/computer types in the unicycling community: One person to order a light bulb online; one person to tell you why it’s the wrong type of light bulb for this particular application; someone to reconfigure the light bulb so that it suits this particular application; an engineer to calculate the brightness to crank-length co-efficient of the light bulb; another unicyclist to insert the GPS co-ordinates of the light bulb and plot it on Google-Earth; and someone to screw the thing in.
