Billiard Balls That Flash, Not Breasts Though

Hammacher Schlemmer, a company best known for selling grossly overpriced crap, is now selling Lighted Billiard Balls.

The regulation-size and weight (5 1/4 oz.) billiard balls illuminate and flash for two seconds upon impact with the cue ball, other balls, or the rail, creating a streak of light. Each ball has four integrated LEDs that are powered by a battery that provides up to 50,000 flashes per ball.

After 50,000 flashes they transform into regular unlit billiard balls. The set costs $200 and ships at the end of November. So if playing pool in the dark is your kind of fun, check them out. But let me warn you, not all things are fun in the dark. Take cooking for example. The last time I tried to make Ramen Noodles with the lights off I ended up slamming the microwave door on my penis.
