Haha, I think I would keep the crystal though. No amount of destruction can keep me from my beloved refracting balls. *hugs*

Seriously. Why give away the ball? If she'd just used her head in the first place, it wouldn't have happened.

The burns on the passenger seat of my car agree with this article.

Blimey...

To be fair though, it's almost impossible to buy one without seeing a warning saying "do not leave in direct sunlight". *shrug*

This is why I like my new Portland Fog ball. It's *meant* to be in the the sun to soak up the rays for UV glowing later.

Yeah, that's why they say that the black ones are good for practicing out in the sun and stuff like that....
But I totally would have kept the crystal! The crystal was more important to begin with!

Silly lady. Probably wasn't even using it properly. Balls want to move. Not sit around in a window. =(

I have a length of bikechain round my wrist that will scratch the b'jeesus out of any nice looking ball within cooee of it. so I cut the top off a sock and put that over the chain when cjing (the chain doesnt come off)
I then put that same loop of sock round my acrylics when I put them down - stopping the sun shining through them. sorted.
as an aside, my company works with airlines, so we just had a load of promotional paperwieghts made that are a glass ball, with the world etched into them. - no good to juggle with because of the flat bottom, but guess where everyone has kept their one.. yup, you guessed it - on the windowsill. *sighs*
