Real or Rumor?

I had my overhead lights dimmed last night and it brought up a question I had considered answered.

All my life I had heard that a dimmer sucked up the power it kept from the light bulbs and  that power became heat. That meant power was not being saved but just held from the light bulbs themselves and thus, you were using just as much power as if you were not dimming the lights.

I looked it up last night and found out that was wrong. Power actually is saved not heat sinked and lost.

Here's another one:

Smoking is good. (We all thought it was didn't we? If not, why did we do it?)

Now, can you give me one good reason smoking is good?

If not, Stop lying to yourself. Stop listening to the bullshit we've been brainwashed with.

There is no evidence smoking is good but is mountains to the contrary.

This is your life. SMARTEN UP! Take it back!
