My father and step-mother have a beautifully-appointed home. It’s a lovely, large townhouse in Broadmead, a suburb (neighbourhood?) of Victoria. When I was last there, I complemented my step-mother on it, but commented on one exception:
It’s a Tibetan salt lamp, apparently created from salt crystals are 250 million years old. They emit positive ions, which are apparently good for you.
To put it tactfully, I think it’s unattractive. As Olaf just noted, it looks quite like the chunk of ‘pure evil’ at the end of Time Bandits. My stepmother really digs it. What do you think?
