    Lightbulb 99p Stores Bargain

    Just bought this Chinese made lantern for, yes, 99p.



    I've filled it up and I'll let it burn itself out and let you know if it explodes. Or not.

    Came with a spare wick.

    There's been a few evenings when the wife's fully warmed up that I wish I came with a spare wick!
    Good value lantern there. Makes you wonder how low chinese wages are to arrive at that price (only one kid each must save a bloody fortune though eh?)
    If you stretch out both arms to represent all time on earth, then with one stroke of a nail file you could eradicate all human history, and 98 per cent of all human history was spent in the stone age.

    PS. Still burning brightly in the garden. No explosions yet.

    I would do a group buy on these, but the glass is a bit fragile for that kinda thing.

    Not sure the rate but sounds about right, just never understood your currency, you have pounds, pence, quid, blah, etc. Pounds used to be about $2.22, but exchange rates and my not following it. Anyways, so pence is 100th of a pound? And what's quid, 10 pence or 10 pounds? What every happened to the metric system over there anyways? LOL
