Nuke Lamp

Add a little armageddon chic to your home with the Nuke Lamp from VeneriDesign. It's yours for only $1,445.53.

If they're charging that much, couldn't they have rounded down to an even $1445?

You're conversion is off a bit, Alex. €1,266.26 = $1,741.88 but, I wasn't really going to buy one anyhow. is where you can convert current monetary values.

Perhaps the 45 refers to 1945 (the first A bomb) and the 53, 1953 (the first H bomb).

Expat -- I didn't convert anything. $1445.53 is the price I see quoted on the site. Is it quoting you a price in Euros?

A gift for those waxing nostalgic over those "duck and cover" drills we used to go through in grade school.

When you see the light, what do you do?

It always helped to have a handy drainage ditch nearby.

It's just me, but I'd have priced it at something esoteric like €1,299 because that converts to 19,456.16 ZAR (South African Rand) -- 1945-6-16 was the date of the first known human-created atomic explosion.

If I had a surplus of funds, I'd buy four of these and put leds in them that change color and use them as a clock (white=0, red=1, green=2, etc.). "Oh, look, it's already red, green, blue, yellow -- we're going to be late if we're going to get there by white, red, white, white."

It'd be my own version of an atomic clock.

It is kind of cool looking. Colored lights would make it even cooler. But not for that price.

@Alex: Yup, and it looks like the site is smart enough to pull out the IP and display the local ducats. Interesting, however, that it's $300 more expensive for me! (Nothing new.)
