Let's discuss lava lamps.

Have you ever owned one? Do you like them? What do you think of them?

Lava Lamps.

I've owned one before, they're okay but I'm not particularly fond of them.

I had a couple when I was a kid. They run through lightbulbs way too quick.

I own one, but I never use it for fear that it will explode suddenly, expelling molten wax over my face.

The wax tends to bead up in them after a while so no go for me.

I had one for a while, until the wax got all globbed in one place and wouldn't flow anymore. I think they're neat for watching while you try to go to sleep, but other than that they really aren't that amusing or useful.

I had a blue one like the picture in the OP's post, but I think the light bulb broke or died out or something a few years ago.

I owned one, but then I was throwing shit around in my room, hit it, it fell over, and broke.

I never owned one myself I don't think, but I actually do have a brother who currently has one. It's kind of sad, most of the stuff in his room stays on the shelf all the time. I actually did end up using it at one point, but only accidentally when I was doing some cleaning around my brother's room. It actually lit up but then it just went back to a state where everything was at the bottom and nothing seemed to really add up.

I've owned a few. They're never as good when you own them.

Yeah, I owned one. I don't use it anymore so I got rid of it. When I did use it though, it was awesome. Since it was on it's side, the little ring that heats up got all messed up in the position it is supposed to be in and I am not sure if it works anymore.

I enjoy the company of lava lamps. They are quite relaxing and far less menacing than drippy candles.

I had a lava lamp a long time ago. They're neat for a little bit, but you forget about them pretty quickly. As cool as they look eventually all you can do with it is stare at the little globs of plastic goo floating around.

I will admit though whenever I put a new bulb in I always tried to catch it at the point when the "lava" at the bottom got hot enough that a giant pillar exploded from the mass. That never got old.

I had one a long time ago, but I'm pretty sure it broke. It was cool before it stopped working, though.

I have a lava lamp/normal lamp in my bedroom right now, but I have no idea where the bottle full of wax and shit is, and the bulb to heat it up is blown anyway, so I only use it as a normal lamp now.

I've always wished to have one. One of these days, I say, one of these days, I'm getting one.

Lava Lamps.


This is my signature. It is a nice signature.

it would be would worser say if you were on speed and you wanted to throw the lamp in the microwave for 3 minutes making the burning glasses shatter from with in.
