    anyway, here's what I had in my room when I had a black light, and it worked reeeeeeeel well.

    Get a fluorescent black light if you can find one, those bulb types get hot as hell.
    I mean like, burn your finger tips off kinda hot.
    Plus the fluorescents spread the light out better.

    Well, the '70s are long ago and far away, but as I remember it, having both a bulb and a fluorescent, the latter was a lot brighter.
    I'll assume it had something to do with the larger surface area, or maybe that fluorescents run cooler so they could safely up the wattage, but I'm talkin' outta my butt here.
    I don't know if they make 'em like this anymore:

    Mine was about 15 inches long or so, and had a reflector under the bulb on the base.
    I guess now that they've got fluorescent "bulbs", one like mine might be harder to find though.
    I'm too lazy to google it right now, sorry.
    Suffice to say, I was a lot happier with the flourescent, and it lasted a lot longer too.
    Just my two cents.
    ..and I'm still not gonna ask about the spit & pee. [​IMG]
