A chandelier made from . . . pickles???


I did a double-take when I came across this article at Ars Technica, describing a chandelier that used gherkin pickles as 'light bulbs'.  To my astonishment, it seems this isn't an unknown phenomenon.  Here's a video report about the experiment.





You can read more about it at the link.

Personally, I've never been all that fond of pickled gherkins.  Now, English-style pickled onions, particularly when served with rich, nutty whole wheat bread and sharp cheddar cheese . . . that's another story!

I can scarcely imagine the stink. Burnin' gherkins and ozone? Yuck!

(Now that I think of it, Burnin' Gherkins would be good name for a 60s cover band)

On the other hand, isn't it great we live in an age when you CAN?
Weird, and cool.
