I wish there some precious collectible these nihilists liked that I could ruin for them and put up a picture to grab as many of them as possible.

Thing is, I can't look at a Contempra now without wanting to check if it has the upside down logo on it like Duffy's...

I saw the auction and checked it against Duffy's post. It appears contempras are upside down on-hook and right-side up off-hook, while in-use................usually.

I bought this Northern Electric Candlestick N50AL made into a lamp.
I converted it right back to to it's former glory. It was a good thing that the person that did this left everything intact.
