Radioactive Furnishings Not Included

Nothing like a living room furnished with radioactive decor to give your home a healthy, pleasing glow.

And a glowing, radioactive bedroom.

And some glowing, radioactive clouds.

Somehow I thought San Jose would be less… glowy.

Nice find by Burbed!

    Given the Geiger Counter readings, I would have expected this place to be in Los Alamos, NM, not at the south end of San Francisco Bay. Ah well, I suppose anyone can go a little over board with the color saturation app.

    Other than having over-enthusiastic photos, I don’t see much wrong with this place except for the ubiquitously ridiculous price tag the region is famous for. It has, on the upside, been *beautifully* maintained and redecorated. Extremely nice looking materials in the kitchen and baths. Still not worth the current $565K price, IMO, let alone the original $650K asking price.

    I’m wondering where the 4th bedroom and “indoor laundry” are, though. Looking through the photos and watching the virtual tour feature, I saw only 3 bedrooms and no laundry. The laundry may be in the garage, but what about bedroom #4? I can find nothing about there being a basement, but that’s my only guess. Anyone else have an idea?

    BTW, some ceramics and concrete statuary from the ’40s, ’50s, and maybe into the ’60s *can be* radioactive if it was painted with radioactive paint. Some of the pigments were created from earth sources in a-bomb testing areas. Might not want to hug Great-Grandma’s garden gnome for too long…

    Enjoy IKEA’s new RADIOAKTIV furniture line…Not only can your furniture be a comfortable place to sit, it will also keep you warm on cold mornings AND gently illuminate the room when it’s dark. And with a roll of 35mm film you can take X-ray photos of your own body! Fun for the whole family!*

    @Denita TwoDragons: LOL!!! But I gotta know… is the furniture radioactive only *after* you assemble it? Or are the parts radioactive on their own? If it’s the former then, hey, not much to worry about for most people?!

    @Emerald63: It’s IKEA’s “trade secret”… ;-)

    @Denita TwoDragons: The *real* “trade secret” is that so many people want to trade in their DIY Ikea furniture for some good old-fashioned “no assembly required” stuff, lol.

    @Emerald63: Oooooh, burn… ;-) I’m partial to rustic bentwood furniture, myself, but dang that stuff’s expensive around here.
