An easier method is to use plain old, garden variety steel wool. No need
to go through the inconvenience of breaking a light bulb.
Of course, if you really want to break a light bulb, use a flash bulb from
older-style cameras. That also gives you a nice bright flash when you
connect it to the battery!
