They look nice and all but they also look like they contain a ton of glitter and Ill be before damned I bring glitter herpes into my house on purpose. Once its inside, its there forever. I got a Christmas card ONCE with glitter years ago and I’m still finding it, on my face and my BIRD last month. How tf he got glitter on him is the first place will remain a mystery to me.
@lemd This dude was later found to have been stealing money from the account and tried to burn the neighborhood down when he was finally booted. All because nobody wanted to run against him, so he won by default.
@werehatrack Almighty God! --no, no! They heard! --they suspected! --they knew! --they were making a mockery of my horror!-this I thought, and this I think. But anything was better than this agony! Anything was more tolerable than this derision! I could bear those hypocritical smiles no longer! I felt that I must scream or die! and now --again! --hark! louder! louder! louder! louder!
“Villains!” I shrieked, “dissemble no more! I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here! --It is the beating of his hideous heart!”
Neither is any other one, if you don’t buy into the superstition driving the belief that it is. Around here, there are so many folks self-terrorized by 666 that TXDOT had to replace those mile markers on I-10 with plain reflectorized posts; people kept destroying them otherwise. (A different state with the same issue on another route solved it by moving the posts 53 feet and renumbering them 665.99.) Decades ago, there used to be a Route 666 running from Gallup, NM to Monticello, UT. But starting in the late '60s, the signs got vandalized so much and so often that eventually they renumbered it to 491 instead.
@rpstrong That would tend to make the real measurement even closer to the stated one. The unboxed photos look like they may have been squeezed a bit horizontally, perhaps by web image processing software that automagically does that kind of stuff, undemanded.
@werehatrack What doesn’t add up is the length of the candle/light (6.75") as compared to the height of the complete candlumdrum (16"). An on-screen measurement would indicate that either the total height would be closer to 14", or that the candle length is understated. I’m guessing it’s the latter.
