Incandescent Light Bulb Energy Meter

The candle probably gets the worst lighting source ever, but in terms of using energy, the incandescent takes the cake, converting the majority of its energy into heat. What will Easy-Bake ovens do when they are outlawed? Don't get me wrong; I love the light it puts out since it is a steady light, as opposed to horrid florescent bulbs that cycle on and off ever millisecond or something, giving many people a headache of unknown origin. Fun fact: the US standard for light is still measured in foot-candles that correlates to the light given by one candle from a one foot distance. Antiquated? I think not.
