If I just looked at that picture without reading the post, I'd have nightmares about finding all those coming into a gutter made up with a big blue wirenut! shocked

why would they pay to have the lamps "burned out" if they're not connected in the first place?

Yes, a nightmare IF it was wired. As to why spend $$$ to burn-out bulbs, only the designer knows!

I'm guessing the designer spent the extra money because it wasn't HIS money.

I'd be the dummy tring to set up a 10' step ladder in the cluster, to change out bad bulbs, and cause a chain reaction of bulbs smashing other bulbs.

His invention was the invention laboratory funded by venture capital.

His first successful invention was the stock market ticker-tape!

This led to branch offices for Wall Street...
Ticker tape parades...
Bucket shops...

BTW, Smith was the inventor of the tungsten wire bulb.

Edison was notorious for ripping off his own staff -- and his financial backers.

That's how Thomas Edison's General Electric Company became simply General Electric Company: the board members kicked Edison out the door and he demanded that they take his name off the building.

Ever wonder why so many Utilities have Edison's name in them?
Consolidated Edison
Detroit Edison
Commonwealth Edison

Good ole Tom wouldn't sell you his generators unless you incorporated his name into the name of your company.
Pretty slick, huh?

Where is the one that is lit? I only see MH luminares?

I believe it's the G50 globe in the cluster. Next time I'm in the mall, I'll scope it out again.
