Bunny video
Post by Dan Kolbet 
The folks over at killed a bunny for Easter. It was a chocolate bunny and it was for science – so it’s OK.

Ninety percent of the energy emitted by a standard incandescent light bulb goes towards the production of heat and not light. To demonstrate the heat-emitting, energy-wasting ways of incandescent light bulbs, two blinged-out chocolate bunnies in the above video are put to the test. Check out the video to see which one survives. I bet you can guess.

Editor’s Note: We at the Avista Blog do not recommend melting bunnies of any kind (they are too yummy), but we’ve made an exception for this little demo. But seriously, we don’t endorse any particular brand of lighting, but love the effort to show how LEDs are cool and efficient.

Try some LED (or even CFL) lighting when you can – it just might save your bunny.
