I did this before i signed up for sfØ.

At 19th st BART station, in the bottom, there are a number of bulb-less lighting sockets.

And now... my Magnum Opus. The best part is that the light is initially off, meaning that someone will monitor it being turned on and freak out. This is the Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority House, btw. I plan to check back nightly.
