: : Don't know about Dana, but I know I AM certainly in your demographic group! Now, geographic is an entirely different sit-chu-a-shun....I don't go where it stays dark for 6 months!!! God, I'd never be able to stand the depression or survive the first winter. Lizzie Borden wouldn't hold a candle to MY bizarre behavior if I was deprived of sun for more than a week.

Oh my god.....it just gets scarier and scarier. We are alike on this one too. I hate winter. By the end of January I am like really depressed and irritable. Don't know that I would go so far as buying one of those contraptions though.....WHAT IS IT with you and these electronic helmets????????? At least the other one would arouse you, whereas this one you speak of could only burn huge holes in your retinas.....how could something that puts you in darkness like FOREVER be touted as a cure for no-sun depression? Check the label, I bet it was made by our nightly Chinese visitors.
