120 - Parallel LEDs

I’ve been meaning to do something with all of the electronics I have in my workroom, but I’ve been envisioning some grander things that require some serious planning. Then I had this simple idea: six LED’s arranged in a star. They are wired in parallel, as my little power supply doesn’t have enough juice to drive even two in series very brightly. I know I’m being a bad circuit designer by leaving out current limiting resistors, but they would have cluttered up the breadboard. I’ll have to give resistors their due in another star.
