UnLEDed

Today we enumerate the differences between LED and lead. Apparently everyone's been having problems with this.

Ok everyone, sit down. Since we're still getting a ridiculous number of customer complaints about this, we need to address the differences between LED and lead.

1. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. Lead doesn't stand for anything, it's lead.         

2. LED lights up, thanks to electroluminescence . Lead does not light up.

3. LED was invented in 1927. Lead wasn't invented, it's just been around since before 6400 BCE.

4. LED lights used in heavy metal shows. Lead is a heavy metal.

5. The only instance in which LED and lead mean the same thing are when spelling 'Led Zeppelin' in all caps.

Ok any questions?

So then we're all clear on LED/lead use?

TED: Well, my name's Ted. Where do I fit in?

Nowhere, Ted. There's no place for you.

TED: Ok thank you.

Anyone else with a question?
