Want to impress your date, and gave a good excuse to get out of it if it goes sour? Check out the Candle by the Hour.

The amazing thing about this candle is that it burns for up to one hour before extinguishing itself. Just simply feed up to three inches of the pliable candle through the brass clamp, and light. That’s it. It gives a great first impression that you are someone of taste, and worldly. You can even make up a story about how you acquired this candle (just be sure you don’t have any mail order catalogs laying around that feature this product).
