Winter illumination/SAD lamps

    It's coming into winter, and at this latitude it's suddenly now getting dark around 6:30 pm instead of 10:30pm.

    I've set my wifi LifX bulb to come on before I wake, and have gone on a bit of buying spree with regards to bright LED bulbs. It's kind of frustrating how rare/expensive they are.

    I have even bought a bayonet socket to 5x edison screw converter, first cheap edison screw bulbs I find here (we get them a lot, due to Lidl/Aldi not realising we use bayonet sockets over here) I'm going to buy 5 of them and make a super light bulb.

    I also have an IR bulb and a UV flourescent lamp.

    I'm going to grab a lamp for my desk at work too.

    Anyone use the dedicated SAD lamps? They seem like overkill.

    Sorry, just that irish people being super pale and living in a cold dark wet climate is funny. You need this stuff for sure.

    Nobody cares why you hopped over the border. But, I will tell you this, while the Irish resemble salamanders, mexicans tend to resemble toads. I think you may be distant cousins somehow.

    Just get a cheap reptile light. It's the UVB that helps with SAD, not any other part of the spectrum. You only need a certain number of minutes under it each day.

    A study at Boston State Hospital showed that people exposed to UV light on their chest and back saw in increase of 120% to testosterone.

    That’s pretty good.

    But when the genitals were exposed to the same like testosterone production increased 200%! [source]

    As mentioned this may be because Vitamin D is not really a vitamin but a hormone precursor. So it makes sense.

    As the testicles are where 95% of testosterone is produced, if you can localize your skin’s formation of D then you can see a direct increase.

    So after hearing about this in my studies, like a good student, I had to give it a try.

    There’s other people that live around me, so its not the easiest thing to pull off.

    But I had to try. Sitting in my yard one day I pull my pants down slightly and let the sun shine…

    What I saw next surprised the hell out of me?

    My balls appeared to move of their own accord.

    I watched in awe for a couple minutes, as they basically squirmed around.

    The irish are much paler than everyone else, it would probably only take a few seconds of exposure.

    That study is from 1939. Basically meaningless without reproduceable resultsd
