What the heck i love a good explosion, i believe i'll hook up the heaters and see what happens. It would be cool looking to have a stand alone glowing tube. I remember listening to those old radio ghost story / mystery programs in the 70's when i was a kid. those glowing tubes kinda added to the experience.lol Thanks for the info.
