Someone told me that fluorescent lights don't actually produce light. He said they suck in darkness, which makes sense because they also suck the will to live right out of my body. Those long, skinny light tubes melt your brain and sap creativity. If you look at one long enough you'll go blind; it may take several years, but it'll happen. The old fluorescent lightbulbs contained mercury and every company threw them into landfills with the rest of their garbage. The mercury got into the groundwater and that's why today you can only eat a few fish a year out of some lakes or you risk turning into something that resembles the liquid metal Terminator. Anyway, I don't think fluorescent lights actually suck darkness, but I still don't like them very well.
