    Or they can buy a candle, use it multiple times, not have to lose blood and use the money NOT spent on an idiotic idea like a one time use lamp on something more important.

    I was going to call you a kill joy, but then again wouldn’t that be exactly what someone dripping blood into a device for fun is.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea hell and
    gave itt to my 4 ear old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I knhow this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
