From: Science Watch, by Karen Freeman, the New York Times, January 13, 1998.

"On its Web site, the company, Silicon Graphics Inc. of Mountain View Calif., says, 'Lava lamps are creatures without the courage to be truly alive. Like college professors, they remain forever in a tepid, amniotic limbo. They provide little in the way of illumination and are stared at by adolescents with nothing better to do.'"
