Japanese lamp fighting. Really.
I found it because I was looking at low voltage lighting and rice paper to make a japanese-style bedside lamp and “japanese lamp fighting” and “japanese lamp furniture” are veeeeery similar. I require very little light to read by and I try to be courteous of CW when she wants to sleep and discomfort or insomnia keep me awake – and so when my old lamp with it’s 7.5W bulb came down ill (I think it is due for a replacement) I figured it was time to move on. Since I like japanese architecture and furniture I said “Why the hell not?”
Oh, back to bulb fighting… a conversation in the comments section at Gizmodo:
You know, the insides of those has got stuff that can give you cancer.
– So I’m told.
Yeah. I had a friend that chewed glass for a living. In the circus.
– And he got cancer from chewing fluorescent bulb glass?
Nah. Got hit by a bus.
Okay… check it out.
