Is there an orange stamp on the other side of the tube?

I remember these lamps. When I was small, many stores in the area I was were lit with GE pre-Ecolux F96T12/SP65 75 watt!

Am I the only one thinking that daylight color is just a waste of money and tube materials? Like who the hell uses daylight tubes on their own will? Like, the color is just atrocious. Everything looks like straight from the morgue room, and everything looks as ugly as it can get. I understand daylight tubes in hospital, morgue, or public showers for hell sake, but who goes and buys daylight tubes to install them in kitchens or livingrooms? Am I the only one who thinks this way?

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.

Good for you. For me Cool White is the way to go. When I go to school and all fixtures are installed with D or WW it gets on my nerves. You probably can tell that I am very 'passionate' person

Same here! Tommorow I'm going to change every tube that's WW or D in my school to /941 (90 CRI range Cool White). With permission of course (they let me! )

Yes I do.

How the hell they let you change the lights? How old are you? I am 19 and teachers really struggle to let me unscrew the flashing EOL tube from old soviet fixture, let alone taking it out. Some are more cool than others. Some don't even let me touch it, because "oooooh electricity, you will die if you touch it"

@Lightingguy1994: My elementary school almost let me change lamps too. Problem is I had to be in their church which was odd. I go to a different church though.

My honest guess is there was some religious reasoning behind their decision

Yeah I was thinking that because churches are usually considered "gods house", you have to be in the family to make alterations to it

Though in my school right now (High School), I don't have to be part of the church which is good. He said I had to bring lamps (I have plenty.) and you can change the lamps!

Nope. It's a private one so your parents take you directly to school and pick you up. I've also had my fair share of looks lol carrying 10 F32T8 lamps lol.
