Lightsaber lamp eschews snideness

No date-repellant references, for once.

We'll refrain from the obvious nerd references here, as some people are a bit sensitive about the topic of date repellants. A little too close to home, apparently.

So we'll just pass along this item from Technabob about a "Lightsaber lamp" from Japan. We're not so sure how much light they give off, but they do come in Jedi and Sith models (green and red, respectively).

But be aware that these lamp-sabers measure less than 16 inches, so don't expect to have any impromptu duels .
