Why did the light bulb keep going out?

Are incandescent bulbs worth keeping?

Those old bulbs are not worth the electricity they’ll use, so dump ’em. Unlike compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs, they don’t contain hazardous materials. The bulb materials are so low in value that recycling doesn’t help. Cost-wise, incandescents burn out before you turn ’em on.
