hmmm, can't say for sure but I wouldn't doubt it. Have you tried looking at:

www.newegg.com
www.zipzoomfly.com
www.svc.com
www.xoxide.com
www.hotbean.com
www.buyextras.com

the first 3 sites are the best but you probably already know of the first two.

I think you are thinking of black lights. Those are flourescent tubes with gas in them that makes light appear, but its the coating inside the tube that gives it the UV effect I believe

right, but they're not "black lights" they flourescent (?). I attended a seminar on plasma (the gas inside the tube) and the electric current flowing through makes it glow. pretty cool actually

yeah like I said I'm not 100% sure...but yeah the tubes are flourescent tubes, but its the inner 'purple' looking coating that gives off the rays...I think it just blocks all the light except the UV or something to that effect.

if it was plasma inside that tube it would have melted right thru and prob burned you even if you were 10 feet away. its gas not plasma. plasma is superheated gas

plasma will glow in a tube if you just hold the ends. I tried.
