what better way to save energy than to paint everything with glowing paint? glowing duct tape, glo paint and other phosporescent things are fairly common, and i propose we save energy via utilizing the lumination that could easily be provided by glow in the dark resources. make road signs, cars and street lamps easier to see; you'll never lose yourself in the dark of your house ever again! so many things in this sad world are neglected of the joy of phosphorescence.

       If everything emitted the same amount of light, we would not be able to see anything. It would be like living at the bottom of the ocean, only with light.

       There's many a time where no amount of light could keep me awake.

       Great idea for streetlamps. Of course the sunlight probably couldn't keep the streetlamp fully lit all night, but its supplement of energy would surely cut consumption of manufactured power.

       hmm... strippers painted in this stuff with all the lights out. I'd call it art!

       We do have luminescent panels on some of our newer aircraft, Diamond, for instance. It's a panel beneath the glare shield, which casts a cool glow on the instrument panel.
