Bulblub

Which, you have to admit, is a better name than Lamp/Lamp.

I thought it was a gag until I clicked the link. Holy shock hazzard! If both ends are live, you could get a dandy of a shock with this one.

I rather doubt that both ends are live. The non-live end probably does get as hot as the rest of the light bulb, though. Just follow my rule for getting through life: don't grab hot light bulbs. (Confession: if I hadn't already decided that it was time to give up the wasting of money on whimsical items for the home, I'd want one of these things.)

Actually, "don't grab hot light bulbs" is a perfectly reasonable premise. We had a metalaw covering chemistry lab in high school: "Hot glass looks exactly the same as cold glass."

So what did you think of that Victorian-era PC keyboard?
