use LED lights, much less energy and "IF" they burn out you can pull out the two wires, crush them up into sand again and sprinkle them on your favourite beach.

What idiot dreamed up the idea to have a bulb like this in the house when it needs a virtual hazmat team to clear up after you break the thing.

Heres something about those light blubs which I think is odd. I have one in my bedroom and ever since I have been getting these strange dreams. But if I keep the light on all night I don't get these dreams. But with the light off I have these really weard dreams. YOu would think it would be the other way around.
I think I will remove that light blub, unless its to late and I have a mercury brain. LOL
There will be a problem in the future because these are the only blubs they will be making. The tradional blubs they will stop making.
(3) Light sources for use in the field would be cumbersome, easy for the enemy to avoid, and easy for snipers to hit.
(4) In some cultures, phenomena such as seizures and hallucinations have positive rather than negative connotations.Possibly some groups would interpret these phenomena as good omens.
The background information leading to the interest in pulsed lightas a potential weapon can be summarized very briefly. Recordings (electro-encephalograms or EEG's) of electrical activity from the human brain were made in 1924 by Berger, who identified and named the predominant wave (alphawave) of the electrical activity. In the 1940's, it was found that alpha rhythm can be controlled by photic driving, i.e.,by having the subject watch a flashing light. Later it was discovered that pulsing at certain frequencies can induce epileptic attacks in some epileptic patients.

The strobe light was popularized on the club scene during the 1960s when it was used to reproduce and enhance the effects of '___' trips. Ken Kesey used strobe lighting in coordination with the music of the Grateful Dead during his legendary Acid Tests.
