I just saw a post in an email I receive from the American Prepper Network. Someone filled a plastic coke bottle with water & bleach. It did not give the ratio. Put a whole in the roof. Looks like the bottle stuck out about 1/3 of the way. It provided the same amount of light as a 55watt light bulb according to the caption.

Anyone have any other gadgets to share? Original or not.

I saw that on APN also. It was very impressive with the amount of light it produced.

Ahhh, solar powered lighting. What a novel idea!

I have several large flat panes of glass set in my walls that provide a similar function.
And they don't make my roof leak when it rains.

After the sun goes down is when I start being interested in other lighting options...

The bleach is just to kill critters.

Which is odd because other people use the sun to kill critters in water bottles.

You just need to go on the roof and shine a flash light on it at night.

In forums designed to help people & provide suggestion, why make statements that do not fall under either? Rhetorical or not. You can find a positive way to have your voice heard.

Really? I thought it was used to make the light whiter.
