     really cool keep up the good work

    I did this, and I filled mine with those half flat colored marbles. cool effect.

    I don't mean to be rude or anything, but why would you want to light up a bottle?

    Instead of asking why, shouldn't we asking why not :)

    it works as a night light or whatever and becouse you can lol.

    that franks red hot is the best hot sauce ever, i can drink it out of the bottle!

    COOL! now when i go on a bar they are like "wtf , his bear is blue!!!"

    Err... completly unnecessary...

    Well my younger brother and I have been toying with the idea of using Tonic water and a UV LED to make the bottle glow (the tonic water has Quinine in it which apperently under UV light glows) So you could do something like that for halloween but I think a bright glowing red would look better on a hot sauce bottle than a sort of glowing green.

    i like the UV idea i might try that

    As stated LEDs would be great. One step further: some bottles, glass or plastic are UV active. Using UV LEDs would surely make great decorations, especially for Holloween.

    what I would do is drill holes in the tops of the bottles, then string them togeather with those little colorful christmas lights. mahe about 2 strings of em' 10 ft. long maybe. Then turn the whole operation upside down and press the tops into the dirt along the edges of your sidewalk/driveway etc.

    somebody already asked that look at the 2nd comment

    yeah no offense but this is kind of stupid...why do you want to put a light bulb in a bottle? lol

    sorry for the double post bit i used an AC adapter for my gameboy color batterybac charger FYI..
