Things that are not fun: unpacking your lava lamps after a week, and finding that they’re both leaking.

I guess that solves the problem of needing to buy new bulbs for them, anyway

If I’m not misremembering, we bought these for my 25th birthday party. I suppose it’s excusable, once they’re two decades old. But I’m still kind of bummed.

@tithonium My experience is those don't last long-term. All the ones I've had, including an original from the early 1970's, died within 5-8 years.

@smellsofbikes these have done extremely well for cheap shit I bought at Spencer’s. I’ve replaced the bulbs several times, and they’d occasionally not turn on until you wiggled them a little, but.
