>>think of the money one could save on electric bills at airports. you could
line out the landing strips for night flying with bioluminescent plants.  It
is a wonderful idea! you could also do away with the light inside the
refrigerator, and find you food at night by the glow of the vegetables

Good grief, you could open your fridge and find the milk, meat, flax seed
oil and vitimins all spoiled by luminescense.  The light 'really' doesn't
stay on when the door is closed.  I looked.  Someone needs to thwarth this
idea quick before you can't find a fridge on the market without it. .....and
what about those dead bioluminescent plants down the runway that didn't
survive the locust storm?  Pilot to pilot:  "Can you see the runway yet?"
"No.  It was there a minute ago".
