I used to think that, too. When I was 8, I made a bet with my dad that if I broke a light bulb in a bucket of water, no bubble would rise to the surface - the vacuum would just collapse. When I lost that bet, I did some reading (way before the Internet) and found that most household bulbs had argon in them.
