    You simply amaze me with all that diverse content, Just when I thought as a collector and 45+ years old geek that I saw it all, Fran makes me feel I've just begun to scratch the surface.

    Yes , with Red , or Blue light. Depending. IN a Mortuary it is probably very commonly the RED light to try to bring some "WARMTH" feeling back to the loved one's display.. . heh, what's so amazing? – is where my mind goes with it? … :-)))

    Thank you friend that was very interesting to say the least I do go to funerals out of respect for the people that are grieving it's a whole psychological breathing thing funerals my people I happen to be Hebrew don't involve anybody by Hebrew law you're supposed to be buried within 24 hours unless you die on the Sabbath I will use are supposed to use no metal in the coffin my dad and my sister my dad when I was a kid always told me just a plain prime box and my sister got the same thing everything is I guess joints not the kind you smoke but that may come after the funeral LOLs but there's no metal at all and the whole idea about the being buried with no in bombing no preservatives and no metal is that everything is supposed to go back to where it came from which would be dirt and dust so at the end of the day you left with bones and if you wait long enough to bones are no more in Israel which is where I live for years how much dual citizen they don't even use coffins they just put the body directly into the ground anyway I thought that might be interesting to some probably not thank you again France and silly yours, above the blind bedroom guitars

    To me, this is one of those "Where have you been?" videos, as I have found that the occasional funeral is a fact of life to my knowledge. While I have noticed the pink bulbs–usually in a series of eyeball ceiling lights near the corpse, I have never found them interesting enough to want to acquire. (High discharge lamps are a different story, though.)

    "A few months later I was at my grandpa's funeral with my grandma. I saw
    him in his casket and I thought of my flashlight; I thought of the batteries in my flashlight. I said to my grandma,
    `Maybe he's not dead. Maybe he's just in the wrong way' " – Stephen Wright 🙂

    Wow – I never really had heard of such a thing. I imagine there are other things about the mortuary biz that we don't know (and maybe it's better that way LOL).

    Meat departments used to use a pinkish lamp over the meat counters for a similar reason. I don't know if they still do, I suppose I could dig my colour temperature meter out of one of my old analog camera bags.

    My folks had a floor lamp that was a 3 way mogul base fixture. The original was a 100-200-300 watt lamp. Later 3 way lamps for it were 50- 100- 150 watt. Many years ago I had some S 19 lamps. They were 2.5 watt discharge lamps with I think argon gas in them. they glowed about the same color as modern purple LEDs. They were made by GE but have since passed away.

    LED's for the living! Fran, I know it is electronics but I was thinking. Can you do a vid on an 8X8X8 LED cube? I made one and it doesn't work right. I suspect the board (Chinese made. I checked every LED in my grids and they all worked). I have two kits but I only built one cube. It flashes but with no discernible patterns. Email me if you are interested. I will send you both kits. I still have the Heathkit scope, too.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jlucasound says:

    So when the bulb stops working, is it "dead'? Or just burned out? "Burned up"? (cremation). Will you break the bulb and do an autopsy? I'm sorry. I just watched Jeff Dunham's Halloween Special. 🙂

    Not that it needs clarification but what you refer to as the "Edison" base is more commonly known as a medium base. A decade plus in the retail lighting industry has gifted me a wealth of useless information. Interesting video!

    Why not get together with Caitlin Doughty of Ask a Mortician. It would be great to see you both do a video about lighting the dead, the science of funerals & alternates to wakes etc.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Hendrickson says:

    Very interesting, I had never known about this. Of course, some modern LED lighting makes even the living look like corpses.

    I was thinking this might be useful in observatories — astronomers use red lighting to preserve night vision, and the infrared would help stay warm on cold nights, but it looks like the red isn't a very deep red so may not be so good for the night vision.

    I'm with you Fran on toteism …. I want to "evaporate" when I change from this dimension …. perhaps to higher one ? I love the title … it says it all for me. Perhaps evaporation will be a new type of future funerary tech for wispisng the dead to the afterlife ?
