I took three of those CHEM-LITE chemical flares, a syringe, and three
street hockey balls (light yellow). Removed the glowing fluid from
the flares and injected it into the balls. I managed to juggle in the
dark for about 5 minutes before the glow faded to a point where
I couldn't see what I was doing. Unfortunately, the chemicals seemed
to react with the air (or a component thereof), and lose their
glow strength VERY quickly.
I've been thinking about mounting some of these on the ends of my
(home made) clubs. (Perhaps a blue one on the Joy dish-soap bottle,
and a yellow one on the Salon-Selective shampoo bottle, and green
for the empty Cola bottle).
This way I can *shine* at night... well my clubs will anyway.
ps. Oh.. and I'm not silent anymore.
