Myth: Incandescent lightbulbs will not be available much longer.

Reality: While most incandescent bulbs currently on the market won't meet strict energy-conservation regulations set to take effect in 2012, all the major lighting manufacturers are working overtime to come up with more energy-efficient versions of the Thomas Edison original. Phillips has already introduced a halogen incandescent that uses 30 percent less juice than its older bulbs. So if you're not a fan of CFLs, know that there's still a light at the end of the tunnel.
