Still this BS? The color temperature of CFLs is much better than incandescents (unless your ideal light quality comes from a whale-oil lamp, of course), they're less fragile than incandescents (ever shatter an incandescent with a few drops of cold water?), and the mercury issue has been shown over and over again to be just hysteria.

LEDs are even better. And you know what? My power bill went from about $60/month 15 years ago to around $40 now. 20 bucks will buy half a dozen LED bulbs at Home Depot.
