"Are these all Mathmos, or also LavaLites? At least the two racks with the light-holes are American, or?
The 3rd from the left - what colour is this?Also clear-green and clear-orange are discontinued for a long time, or?
Very nice team!"
"So do you have to buy an inverter to run them or , convert to us wiring? I really thought the smart astro was cool
So i called mathmos and they were rude , shitty on the phone and told me they couldnt help me at all !!"

THAT IS REALLY,REALLY FAR OUT!
The Times we live in are INSANE, and no matter how stressed out, outraged, despaired, angry or whatever you become, once you truly honestly assess the reality of the global madness, you will always find solace in the 'Flow Of Lava', al least for a little moment of joy and wonder
Where I Live:
Wedel, a small town at the gates of Hamburg, Germany
My First Lava Lamp was:
A mathmos (I think it was a telstar w. violet/orange bottle, but i bought another one right away , an astrobaby w. red wax, perhaps it was the other way round - what I'm sure of is that those were the two that started it all - 'but those were hi-flyin' d...d out times, man',
My Collection Includes this many Lava Lamps:
more than 50 (mostly Mathmos, 4 Lava Lite , 3 Excaliburs, 2 unknowns
My Favorite Lava Lamp is:
Definitely the Lunar, the 'Queen of Lava Lamps' At the moment right now I favor my refurbished bottle w. purple/white Mathmos formula , next to the clear/turquoise one, but there are so many beautiful color combinations...
...and other wonderful lamps, too
But the Lunar will always be the prime contender, others may be bigger, badder etc. but the Lunar not only excels design-wise, the flow of Mathmos is spectacular as well ...the mathmos formula is one of a kind and in a league of its own , nothin' compares ,even more so in the long run, I've just sold a bottle with 'flawless flow' that was 25 years old, believe or not (although i didn't contact Ripley's yet)
hmm seems I cant include a pic here...I really dont like to toot my own horn on here by uploading in the pics secrion but if you send me a facebook request ( Arne Es Selbst) I will show you some stuff I make
