Skull Blacklight

Never knew they sold bulbs shaped like skulls.
Though I'm not a big fan of blacklights - they make my eyes hurt.
I love the idea of them and the strange light cast from them is wonderful, but when I look directly at them, I get a weird pain in the center of my eyeballs.

I probably have glaucoma or something.

The problem with these incandescent black lights is that they really don't do much beyond creating a fire hazard. They don't put out much UV, and they use an absorption coating to block most of the visible light they make, which turns it all to heat, so they're hotter than normal incandescent bulbs. If you want real UV, you have to use a real fluorescent style black light.
