For those of you who are fans of all things atom and isotopic, check out the Radioactive Elements Glowing Coaster Set from ThinkGeek headquarters.
This colorful four set grouping of tabletop prophylactics includes representation from four radioactive elements: Radium-226 (red), Plutonium-244 (blue), Uranium-238 (green), and Thorium-232 (blue); and is presented in a box featuring the radioactivity warning symbol; see—practical and educational.
Whether you’re a chemist, a physicist, or the neighborhood authority on all things Armageddon, when the shock waves explode and the rays of impending gloom are pending, you’ll be happy to throw on that hazmat suit and hunker down in the fallout with a bottle of your best spirits, a few of your favorite friends, and these clever, incandescent little beacons of omnipresent doom. Lights out. Let the party begin.
The coasters are powered by 8 3V CR2 032 batteries (included in the box) and light up whenever your drink is in place. With constant use, the batteries will last about 4.5 hours so, if you’re celebrating in a blackout, I say keep those bottoms tipped and keep the spirits flowing. Even if you know nothing about isotopes and radiation, at least you can appreciate the sentiment. Cheers!
