You need to warn people. Over time, a high wattage bulb will heat the glass, and if it cools too fast, the glass will crack. Sometimes explode. Seriously.
you could use an LED bulb, they are nice and cool, and endorsed by captain planet.

Vonronge, thanks for the tip. I`ve included a precautionary warning.

i'm just saying... step 1 should be 'Drink the Contents'. Step 2 could be 'Sober up'. Very nice decor for the 'Man Cave'. I did something similar for my little brother's house, he had too many bottles around.
