What kind of light bulb does this lamp use?

What kind of light bulb does this lamp use?

Pictures of what I am talking about

I received this rather old lamp, but can't figure out what kind of light bulb it uses. As you can see, the inside is a bit rusty, but I can kinda sorta make out "150 W" and "250 V". I'm going to assume that means 150 watt and 250 volt, but didn't see anything close to those specifications on the light bulbs at the store.

I put a typical light bulb into the socket in the second picture to give an idea as to how big it is.

LPT If hot food is burning your mouth, blowing out warm breath is not as efficient as sucking in cold air to cool it down.

Suck that air in people, you're welcome.

LPT + TIL Combo: This small tip might make it easier for you to floss regularly.

LPT + TIL Combo: This small tip might make it easier for you to floss regularly.

Today at the dentist, after years of slightly sugar coating how much I floss, finally said….

"I don't know, I wasn't too good about it. It obviously works and should be done, but I think it's stupid taking a piece of string and spreading dirt and nastiness from one area of your tooth to another… how does that even clean it?"

She looked surprised at my understanding of flossing.

Apparently flossing isn't just to remove plaque or whatever by scraping it away… it's actually also is to disrupt bacteria colonies that "settle" in your mouth, undisturbed, kind of like an anthill or something. And by flossing you're destroying all their colonies and stomping on all the anthills… you're not just "removing gunk".

I found this way more interesting, and immediately helpful in my quest to learn how not to hate flossing. When I heard it explained that way it didn't seem like a far-fetched idea that works for everyone else except me, but rather an immediately applicable concept where I'm destroying the homes of bacteria in my mouth that cause plaque and cavities.

Where are the humid parts of Colorado?

Where are the humid parts of Colorado?

I'm writing fiction where a lot takes place in Colorado, and one of the chapters has a scene where it's humid. I want to know if this is correct, or if it's off the mark and humidity is rare.

LPT request: How can I catch a lying kid?

LPT request: How can I catch a lying kid?

I have three kids and when one of them break something or do something bad I can't tell which one did it because they keep blaming it on each other. How can I tell which one is telling the truth and which one is lying?
