You hang on to dead CFLs because you might someday have a use for the electronic components in them.

Do you sometimes answer simple math questions in Octal or Hex? Do you often have MCUs on your kitchen counter mixed in with all of the other stuff people accumulate there? Rather than throwing out an old computer, do you feel compelled to scavenge it for any useable parts? When asked by a friend or family member what you did at work today, do you sometimes stop in the middle of the explanation because you've already lost them - and they don't notice that you stopped? When you have a WiFi or cell phone signal drop out, do you try to imagine the signal propagation first and complain second? When an electronic consumer product gets warm, does it bother you because you assume that to keep costs low, they used electrolytics without the proper thermal range?

I am proud to be an engineer. Yes, my wife has given me the cold stare when she finds out I am thinking about physics while staring at sunsets. I also admire the show and take photgraphs, but she can't understand that engineers are always doing multiple things at once.
